The way forward for Norwegian windpower development
How can we protect nature and act on climate change? In the wake of heated debate in Norway over windpower development, energy researchers from Norway's largest university and Scandinavia's largest independent research institute offer politicians some thoughts.
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, it is perfectly safe.
Sensors made this company a world leader in tool production
A small machining company in Norway is the first in the world to use digitalised tools for advanced turning. The technology enables the prevention of damage to complex and expensive parts used in the aircraft and gas industries.
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.
Changing the food processing industry
The iProcess project for a more sustainable food production and to reduce the amount of the climate emissions, the flexible robotic automation technology will enable to increase raw material utilization, reduce food loss and waste, and to cope with biological variation of raw material from fish to wheat.
C-capture to work with SINTEF in Norway to validate its carbon capture technology
C-Capture, the designer of world-leading and innovative chemical processes for carbon dioxide removal, is to work with Norway’s SINTEF on a new phase of its research and development programme.
Recently-developed material makes hydrogen production more efficient
Norwegian scientists have developed a material which can make hydrogen from water vapor, instead of liquid water. It pays off, because heat is cheaper than electricity.
Seaweed and kelp are more than food
Algae cultivation is popular, but good uses for the raw material are still lacking. Researchers in Norway are set to do something about this, with the goal of fully using this resource.
These experiments are key to being able to store lots of CO2 safely in the subsurface
When energy researchers carry out experiments to investigate safe and efficient CO2 transport on the roof of the thermal power engineering laboratories at Gløshaugen, Trondheim, the noise they make will be like a jet engine.
