SINTEF Materials and Chemistry Materials and Nanotechnology
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Nanotechnology and advanced materials will have a significant impact on solving the grand challenges of our global society and create new business opportunities for existing and new industries. SINTEF has the capability to assist your organization in developing new or improved products with strong competence within structural and functional materials and multi material combinations. Through combination with other relevant competencies in SINTEF we contribute to the development of sustainable value chains in context of a circular economy.
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.
We offer laboratory and field testing services in addition to contract research and development. Our laboratories are equipped with modern instruments for coating testing and characterization. Additionally, we have access to a wide range of advanced methods and equipment for coating and surface characterization within the SINTEF group.
Tribology is the multidisciplinary science on wear, friction and lubrication of interacting surfaces in relative motion. Research in tribology is often highly dependent on the final application. The mission of the Tribology Lab at SINTEF/NTNU is to adapt our knowledge and equipment to our clients’ needs.
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.
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.
SiC4LED – Novel fluorescent silicon carbide growth approach for white LEDs
The main objective of the project aims to grow a new type of compound semiconductor crystal, fluorescent silicon carbide (f-SiC), by applying the liquid solution phase epitaxial (LPE) technology, and to preliminarily examine the feasibility of fabricating the monolithic white light-emitting diodes (LEDs). It is expected to save up to 20% of energy consumption for SiC growth.

New allergy test promises safer antibiotic use
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments.
