Transportation for the 21st Century
What will the future transport system look like? SINTEF will contribute to answering this, through participation in the government-designated strategy process Transport21.
This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn’t it cost more than it’s worth? Here we provide the research scientists’ answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on. And yes, this can be performed in a safe manner.
NTNU will lead European sustainability project
Through the Research Centre on Zero Emission Neighbourhoods (FME ZEN) in Smart Cities, NTNU has received funding from the EU to research sustainable plus energy neighbourhoods in Europe. SINTEF and OBOS are partners.
Enabling the transition to a circular economy
Norway and the EU are prioritising a circular economy agenda to deliver the next generation of jobs, growth and investment. But how can we enable this transition to a circular economy?
New tool shows best location for blue-green infrastructure
The amount of rain is increasing, and in urban areas the big question is what to do with all the water. A new GIS-based tool indicates where blue-green infrastructure, such as rain gardens, is best located.
How to cut emissions and save on transmission costs
Even Norway, which already heats with green energy sources, could contribute more to shrinking Europe's CO2 emissions. Building zero emission neighbourhoods would also help lower rising electrical transmission fees.
Digitalization of geohazards with Internet of Things
In the coming four years, the research project KlimaDigital aims to study the use of digital solutions to mitigate societal risks due to geohazards in a changing climate.
Minerals and Materials for a Sustainable Future
