A Swedish-Norwegian research project will be looking into the possibilities and costs of transporting CO2 captured in Sweden for storage on the Norwegian shelf. This is the first project ever to look into this possibility.
The themes of the tenth edition of the Trondheim CCS Conference are technology that is absolutely necessary to combat climate change: CO2 capture, transport and storage.
Moreover, researchers have succeeded in increasing its output dramatically by providing the panel with its own cooling system.
What has to happen to facilitate more effective rescues from tunnel fires? Researchers have been investigating how 80 research subjects wearing VR glasses reacted in a virtual tunnel fire. Their conclusion is that basic measures can save lives.
What is the best timing for the various hydroelectric plants to produce power? NTNU and SINTEF have developed an efficient and profitable simulation tool to make the most of hydropower generation.
Even Norway, which already heats with green energy sources, could contribute more to shrinking Europe’s CO2 emissions. Building zero emission neighbourhoods would also help lower rising electrical transmission fees.
The electronic “sensor” fish measures the physical factors that affect farmed fish during delousing. The results may lead to welfare improvements in salmon farm cages.
A snake robot will soon be relieving divers and mini-subs in the North Sea. But first researchers have to test its mettle in the Trondheim Fjord.
Better and cheaper offshore wind farms are the goal for a new cooperative effort on renewable energy.
New technology will be used to recycle rare and valuable metals from waste materials such as electronic scrap and foundry slag. The process is profitable and may help to reduce environmentally harmful mining operations. The method is now in the final for the EU-research prize “Best early stage innovation 2018.”
An enzyme that normally repairs damaged DNA may be the key to a new treatment for inflammatory diseases.
The team behind a new medical navigation system which makes it easier to take biopsy samples from the lungs recently received an international innovation award during Innovation Expo 2018 in Rotterdam.
A small device, developed in Norway, will now be used in the battle against environmentally-unfriendly ghost fishing caused by lost or forgotten fishing gear.
SINTEF and NTNU are working closely together in Brussels. The rewards for Norwegian businesses can be great, both in terms of innovation and revenues.
It is rare that a half degree means so much to humanity. An Alliance of Small Island States (39 States) are all worried about the consequences of climate change. For nine of them, the situation is already severe.
Exosomes are natural nanoscopic particles released by most cell types, and are currently the focus of research because they represent a possible tool for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. These particles are not so easy to isolate, and nanotechnology may help in this process.
It may sound futuristic, but most of us are already using this technology without really being aware of it. In fact, it’s all about small mechanical systems containing components well under half a millimetre in size. Norwegian researchers are advancing this technology that can be applied to almost everything you can think of.
For the first time this week, the Nature Research Group, publishers of Nature, will host an international conference in Trondheim in cooperation with NTNU, SINTEF and the Geological Survey of Norway. The theme for the conference, which runs from 11-13 September, is the sustainable use of minerals and materials.
How is the travel pattern of a family affected by the delivery of foods to the door? And does this make them more environmentally friendly? Researchers will now find the answer.
Research on minerals and materials is important in helping society make the transition to a greener economy. NTNU, the Geological Survey of Norway and SINTEF have joined forces to establish a national laboratory to that end.
An international team of researchers has recently succeeded in getting several autonomous vessels and underwater vehicles to communicate and work together as part of one and the same operation.
Thanks to toxin-free technology that also saves energy, Norwegians can eat their ice cream without worrying about the climate.
The problem is global, say researchers, and caused primarily by ignorance and a lack of understanding.
