Renewable energy Bioenergy
SINTEF has decades of research experience in environmentally friendly and energy- and cost-effective bioenergy
SINTEF's expertise helps industry, government and other organizations to assess and implement the use of biomass and waste for energy purposes. Putting these energy sources to work requires the knowledge that SINTEF can provide to ensure bioenergy is both environmentally friendly and highly efficient.
High throughput screening facility, Trondheim
The robotic screening facility at SINTEF are optimized for high throughput analytical and cultivation work and enables us to process of thousands of samples or cultures per day.
Biomass to energy (BtE) and waste to energy (WtE) plants in Norway need to comply with stricter emission limits and/or adjust to tighter profit margins, and EU have implemented a further reduction of emission limits from medium (scale) combustion plants.
4REFINERY - Scenarios for integration of bio-liquids in existing REFINERY processes
4REFINERY will develop and demonstrate the production of next generation biofuels from more efficient primary liquefaction routes integrated with upgraded downstream (hydro)refining processes to achieve overall carbon yields of >45%. The consortium will aim for successful deployment into existing refineries, including delivering a comprehensive toolbox for interfacing with existing refinery models.
The primary objective of this project is to develop optimized gasification and secondary combustion chambers for the two-staged thermal waste conversion in the TeamTec technology based on advanced CFD modelling combined with experimental development. The process as a whole will achieve NOx and CO emissions below the European legislation with only primary measures for NOx reduction, contributing to a more environmentally friendly process and energy efficient process, as well as increased cost efficiency for TeamTec.
Building the foundation in Trondheim for the green transition
For the first time, a major European research infrastructure project is being led by a country from outside the EU.
Norwegian to lead energy research in Europe
Nils Røkke, Director of Sustainability at SINTEF, is the new Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance.
European researchers want to extend funding for renewables
An international team of researchers has concluded that operational funding should continue to be provided for the production of renewable energy in Europe, provided that such support is progressively reduced over time.
