SINTEF Energy Research Gas technology and hydrogen
SINTEF’s work helps safeguard the value of Norwegian gas in the international market
We have world-leading research expertise in natural gas liquefaction, gas transport in demanding areas over long distances and process and component development.
The thermal engineering laboratories is the nation's leading laboratory in the field of combustion, refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump, low-temperature and bio processes, CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) and processing, storage and transportation of food products.
CHEERS - Chinese-European Emission-Reducing Solutions
On 1 October 2017, a new Research and Innovation Action, designated CHEERS, was commenced under the EC-Horizon 2020 programme's Low-Carbon Initiative.
ELEGANCY – Enabling a Low-Carbon Economy via Hydrogen and CCS
As the only technology that can substantially reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, CCS is an essential component in essentially all IPCC scenarios that limit global warming to below 2.3°C.
Destination Brussels – with climate facts in his luggage
SINTEF’s climate change ambassador Nils Røkke is on his way to Brussels looking forward to a new job and new assignments. He has been appointed as Chair of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). This in a world in which the threats posed by climate change are increasingly being portrayed as “fake news”.
Fuel of the future
Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as “exhaust”. Not only will hydrogen technology revolutionize road transport, it will also enable ships and trains to run emission-free.
