Clean Ocean

Challenges related to marine littering and pollution must be solved to realize the sustainable bio-marine growth needed for the future.

SINTEF Center for Clean Ocean Research

What is SINTEF doing?

SINTEF is working to increase knowledge about the spreading and environmental consequences of pollutants in the World's oceans. Our ambition is to develop solutions for reducing the amount of pollution reaching the World's oceans and for cleaning the marine environment.

Expertise at SINTEF

SINTEF has relevant expertise in many areas related to Clean Ocean Research. We work on finding solutions and answers to the following questions:

  1. Where does the pollution come from and where does it end up in the World's oceans?
  2. What effect does the pollutant have on marine life?
  3. How can the amount of pollution in the World's oceans be reduced?
  4. How can we help decision makers?

The SINTEF Center for Clean Ocean Research brings together and coordinates relevant expertise for clean ocean research in SINTEF.
