SINTEF Ocean New marine resources
New marine resources
The sea has a vast biological diversity of resources. SINTEF execute biology- and technology-based research projects for the utilization of vide variety of marine resources. We have mathematical models for the spreading of lice in sea, we grow seaweed and research on how we can develop tomorrow's solutions through integrated aquaculture.
The climate is changing in the Arctic and projections by the IPCC suggests valuable marine resources are migrating further north. What does this mean for fishers, for tourists, for international politics and future communities in the far north, and for the Svalbard fisheries protection zone and Norwegian sovereignty in the area?
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
ENTiCE is a three year project financed by the Research council of Norway in which SINTEF Fisheries and aquaculture, NTNU, Frøya High School, and the Scottish Association for Marine Science will implement and develop new technologies for studying the interactions between physical, chemical and basic biological processes in coastal waters.
