MKRAM – Material Knowledge for Robust Additive Manufacturing
Industrial use of additive manufacturing (3D printing) is increasing. There are many recent developments, both technically and commercially, regarding materials, machines and production services. However, there are also R&D challenges, e.g. when it comes to predictable and repeatable material properties. The MKRAM project is addressing such challenges for selected metal alloys and plastics.
SURKINOX – Designing rules for enhancing SURface KINetics in functional OXides for clean energy technologies
The project aims to develop novel approaches to design property-driven materials with nano-functionalized surfaces and nano-structured thin films as well as necessary experimental techniques to determine catalytic properties and rate determining steps in specific processes relevant for ceramic fuel cells, electrolysers and gas separation membranes.
POLYMEM - New polymeric membranes for CO2 capture
The primary objective of the POLYMEM project is to reduce the costs, energy and environmental impact of CO2 capture compared with existing technologies by developing and implementing the "next generation" polymeric membranes.
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.
CO2BioPEC - CO2 utilization by formate dehydrogenase biocatalyst in a PhotoElectrochemical Cell
The main objective of CO2BioPEC is to demonstrate a bio-hybrid photoelectrochemical cell, in which solar energy is efficiently captured and at the same time, CO2 is converted to energy-rich compounds in the presence of formate dehydrogenase enzymes as biocatalyst.
FerroCool is an experimental project that will investigate ferrofluid heat transfer. It is an early step towards realizing a novel, efficient and reliable cooling concept that uses magnetic nanofluids.
CARBCOATPRO – Stimuli responsive layered double hydroxide/CARBon nanotube based COATings with multi-level corrosion PROtection
The CARBCOATPRO project aims at developing innovative multi-level protective "smart"coatings with enhanced "self-healing" active protection properties, to improve the long-term performance of metallic substrates.
SIP TER: Tailored encapsulation and release
In this project, we aim at increasing our competence and developing new polymer or hybrid capsule demonstrators using a range of techniques and materials. Nano- and microcapsules are currently of high interest in many applications where protection of ingredients is needed or a specific effect by controlled release is desired, e.g in food, lotions, bioreactors and paint.
ResMap – Antibiotic resistance in Norwegian poultry production; Improved knowledge by advanced HTS-based technology platforms
In the ResMap project we will perform studies that will contribute to increased understanding of bacterial antibiotic resistance in Norwegian food production, in relation to consumption of poultry risk products and impacts on human health.
