The sea can provide solutions to many of the global challenges we face. Today's and future coastal structures are promising technologies in the transition to a zero-emission society.
An efficient, selective and sustainable fishery ensures that marine resources can be utilised both now and in the future.
The Ocean covers 70% of Earth, and consists of a mosaic of different governance constellations that Norway, and Norwegian research and industries, have to work within.
SINTEF's initiative within Industrial biotechnology contributes to ensure a future sustainable bio economy. In Industrial biotechnology enzymes and microorganisms are used to create products in the fields of fine- and bulk chemicals, pharmaceuticals...
Marine ecosystems include biotic organisms and abiotic elements the free water masses and the seabed in all sea areas from fjords and coastal areas to the open sea.
Marine operations include traditional shipping, offshore operations and aquaculture operations. SINTEF offers solutions to analyze different types of marine operations. These solutions include model trials and numerical simulations.
New ways of using biomarine resources can play an important role in the green shift. At SINTEF, we develop enabling technologies for the industrial utilisation of new biomarine resources.
At SINTEF, we work with the development of innovative automated processes within seafood and food production.
