SINTEF Ocean Biomarine processing
Future production in fisheries and aquaculture will be assisted by new technologies such as sensory, robotics and autonomy. We have world-leading expertise in replacing human eye - brain - hand with machine vision - computer - manipulator. We bring together solution-oriented and interdisciplinary teams with industry experience to solve issues and contribute to industrialization of processes across the entire value chain - from initial handling to finished product.
This laboratory incorporates a “process hotel”, in which industrial companies and their equipment suppliers can obtain access to high-level knowledge within fields such as process engineering and management, and machine and measurement techniques. These are used in combination with knowledge of the input raw materials as a basis for developing and testing new processes.
Marine Wet Laboratory
Our facilities are constructed flexibly to enable experiments to be adapted to various project requirements. We offer lab rooms of different sizes in which temperatures can be regulated in the range 5 to 25 degrees. All rooms have access to a range of water qualities and air pressure settings.
DAFIA - Biomacromolecules from municipal solid bio-waste fractions and fish waste for high added value applications
The main objective of DAFIA is to exploit municipal solid wastes (MSW) and marine rest raw materials (MRRM) as feedstocks for higher value products. Municipal solids wastes represents more than 500 kg/capita (EU-27 average) and 300 million tonnes overall every year in the EU-32. Currently, approximately 50% of this volume is landfilled, while the rest is incinerated for energy production.
Re-FOOD is an international partnership for research and education in energy efficient resource utilization in FOOD value chains between Norway and India.
New project shall provide better understanding of food value chain and network dynamics
To address specific challenges facing the food system and food value chains in Europe, SINTEF Ocean along with 21 international partners from Europe and Asia, have kick started the EU Horizon2020 project VALUMICS in June 2017.
SINTEF Ocean – merging SINTEF's marine research into one institute
SINTEF is merging its ocean research activities into one new institute, called SINTEF Ocean. The ambition is to strengthen our position as a world-leader in the fields of marine technology and biomarine research.
