Reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the transition to a low-emission society
In this study SINTEF has focuses on circular economic opportunities that are expected to have a large potential for reducing the climate gas emissions associated with Norwegian consumption and production. Over a dozen circular strategies were selected and analysed as case studies with both the consumer perspective and the industry perspectives and their potential impact on reduction of green house gas emissions investigated. The study found that implementing the studied strategies could have a significant effect on reducing Norwegian greenhouse gas emissions, both within Norway and outside of Norway as Norwegian consumption is heavily dependent on global production and supply chains.
Development of materials and processes for 3D-printing of components for fire stopping vents
The objective of this project is to develop an intumescent material and a corresponding production process for automated industrial production of components for a patented type of fire stopping vents for buildings.
