Produced water (PW) from the oil and gas industry represents the largest direct discharge of effluent into the marine environment worldwide. Approximately 130 million m3 PW is released on the Norwegian continental shelf annually from offshore production platforms.
In the DiTail project we will study how exposure to fine tailings will affect marine copepods, fish eggs and fish larvae by integrating data from physical, physiological and molecular measurements into dynamic energy budget models.
MICROFIBRE: Evaluating the fate, effects and mitigation measures for microplastic fibre pollution in aquatic environments
To understand the environmental behaviour and impacts of microplastic fibres (MPFs) in order to develop a decision support framework that enables garment manufacturers to make environmentally informed choices in their material selection.
Re-FOOD is an international partnership for research and education in energy efficient resource utilization in FOOD value chains between Norway and India.
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.
MERIT – Combined experimental and modelling approaches towards improved environmental risk predictions of subsea mine tailing disposal
MERIT is an internally funded research project (SEP) that studies the fate and effects of subsea mine tailing disposal in Norwegian fjords
PLASTOX – Direct and indirect ecotoxicological impacts of microplastics on marine organisms
The amount of plastic litter, especially microplastics, in the ocean are quickly accumulating. The PLASTOX-project aims to investigate the environmental impacts resulting from microplastics.
