PYROCO2 - Demonstrating sustainable value creation from industrial CO2 by its thermophilic microbial conversion into acetone
The PYROCO2 project will demonstrate the scalability and economic viability of carbon capture and utilization (CCU) to make climate-positive acetone out of industrial CO2 and renewable electricity derived hydrogen.
We can test and characterise a wide range of different materials in our laboratories. Materials and components are bent, tensioned and compressed, and go through fracture- and fatigue tests.
Modern production of high quality metallic materials requires advanced knowledge of pyro-metallurgical processes. SINTEF optimises metallurgical processes and raw materials, using a combination of laboratory scale and pilot scale experimental...
We perform research-based mass spectrometric (MS) and high-throughput (HTS) analyses for SINTEF, academia and industry.
SINTEF Industry is represented in the national research centers for environmentally friendly energy (FME) and research-based Innovation (SFI). We have several Gemini Centers in cooperation with NTNU in Trondheim and the University of Oslo.
Centres for Research-based Innovation (SFI)
The purpose of the SFI is to build up and strengthen Norwegian research groups that work in close collaboration with partners from innovative industry and innovative public enterprises.
- SFI Dsolve
- SFI Industrial Biotechnology
- SFI SWIPA
- Metal Production
- Centre for Advanced Structural Analysis (CASA).
- Sustainable Innovations for Automated Manufacturing of Multi-Material Products
- Industrial Catalysis Science and Innovation for a competitive and sustainable process industry (iCSI)
- Center for innovative ultrasound solutions for health care, maritime, and oil & gas industries.
Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME)
The objective of the scheme for FME is to establish time-limited research centres which conduct concentrated, focused and long-term research of high international calibre in order to solve specific challenges in the field.
The Gemini Centres form a model for strategic cooperation in which scientific groups with parallel interests coordinate their scientific efforts and jointly operate their resources.
SINTEF Industry management
