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.
Mar3Bio – Biorefinery and biotechnological exploitation of marine biomasses
The marine biomasses used in Mar3Bio are brown algae and crustacean byproducts which are sources of the marine polysaccharides alginate and chitosan. These abundant but underexploited renewable biomasses have great potential for production of high value biomolecules.
The MACROSEA project will target successful and predictable production of high quality biomass thereby making significant steps towards industrial macroalgae cultivation in Norway.
Cultivation of Dulse (Palmaria palmata)
The red algae Dulse is demanded for use in food and in this project we will adjust cultivation methods for this nutritious and tasty seaweed species.
Delousing with hydrogen peroxide and environmental factors
Treatments with hydrogen peroxide in closed systems has due to an increasing resistance in sea louse to other medical delousing methods become a common alternative.
VALUABLE - Microalgea in cosmetics
Different species of microalgae have different content of lipids and pigments. The species used in this study will be selected based on their chemical composition, to produce raw material for lotions and nutraceuticals for human consumption.
