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.
Received prestigious award
Senior Researcher Rachel Tiller received the prestigious Fulbright Arctic Chair Award for 2018-2019. She will be a Visiting Scholar at the Maritime Studies Program at Texas A&M University at Galveston outside Houston.
Norwegian bioprocess centre opens
The aim of the new Norwegian Centre for Bioprocessing and Ingredients Research (BIOPRO) is to contribute towards the utilisation of bioresources from the food and seafood industries.
A “health centre” for juvenile salmon
The condition of the water in salmon hatcheries can tell us a great deal about when and why outbreaks of disease occur. Now, SINTEF researchers are about to expose the water’s secrets, both to prevent suffering in fish and to save the aquaculture industry a great deal of money.
