Applied research, technology and innovation
Our 2000 employees offer expertise in:
Making a car workshop into an attractive, energy-efficient urban residence
Combining old and new to achieve reduced energy consumption, a better living environment and architectural success. It's definitely possible and researchers will show you how.
Don’t burn your Christmas tree in the fireplace!
Christmas is over and now is the time to get rid of your tree. And I mean GET RID of it! Don’t burn your Christmas tree in your wood-burning stove!
True hygge with environmentally friendly log fire
A crackling log fire is pure HYGGE. But what’s actually the best way to have log fires in our modern, well-sealed and fully-insulated homes?
SINTEF is looking for the next generation of problem solvers. If you want to be involved in creating solutions for the next generation, SINTEF needs you. For more than 60 years our research has developed solutions and innovations both for society and our clients all over the world. As a result, SINTEF has become a world-leading research institute. As one of our valued employees you will enjoy trust, challenging assignments and ample opportunity for professional and personal development. Welcome to SINTEF – Technology for a better society.
SINTEF offers world-leading laboratories within a broad spectre of technology areas. Our advanced laboratories range from development of microelectronics and studies at a nano-level, to one of the world's largest ocean basin laboratories.
Multiphase Flow Laboratory
The laboratory's main activity is flow assurance related research for the petroleum industry. It has contributed significantly to the development of multiphase flow simulators, and this is still an ongoing activity. Development of hydrate cold flow technology and sand transport studies are currently also main topics.
Ambition - Advanced biofuel production with energy system integration
The ECRIA project AMBITION aims to develop a long-term joint European Community Research and Innovation Agenda on the integration of biofuels production and surplus grid electricity valorisation. AMBITION brings together eight partners from eight different countries into a European wide lasting research partnership, which is closely linked to EERA Bioenergy.
SCALE - Production of Scandium compounds and Scandium Aluminum alloys from European metallurgical by- products
Scandium (Sc) is one of the highest valued elements in the periodic table and an element which is usually grouped in REEs as it shares many characteristics with Yttrium. The SCALE project sets about to develop and secure a European Sc supply chain through the development of technological innovations, which will allow the extraction of Sc from European industrial residues. This will be achieved through the development of a number of innovative extraction, separation, refining and alloying technologies that will be validated in an appropriate laboratory and bench scale environment to prove their technical and economic feasibility.
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.
