Hi all,
Many of our most important industries are hard to decarbonise. Did you know that the energy-intensive ferroalloy industry is responsible for 23% of electricity consumption and 20% of greenhouse gas emissions from Norway's land-based industry?

The new NECast project aims to reduce energy use by looking for inefficiencies in the casting process. It also shows the power of our research centres like HighEFF that identify such opportunities.

Read on for the latest news and research results from the world of SINTEF Energy Research…

Next-Generation Casting Process for the
Ferroalloy Industry

Further reducing emissions from the energy-intensive ferroalloy industry is an important step in reaching our global climate goals. Born out of the HighEFF research centre, the NECast project will evaluate the potential of a new casting process for this important industry. … Read more

Digital Twins: Condition-Monitoring of
Power Electronic Converters

Digital twins replicate a physical system by a digital model that is fed with real-time data from site. Among several uses, the digital twin can be used to estimate the state of the system's health and then act upon that information. This means it is now possible for condition-based maintenance to be a successful … Read more

Understanding CO2 Depressurization in Pipes

Svend Tollak Munkejord and his team of researchers from the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS) have published the first analysis based on a dataset collected using the ECCSEL Depressurization facility in Trondheim, Norway. "With high-density and high-frequency recordings of both pressure and temperature, we can put transient multiphase flow models to the test. This will help us …Read more

The Latest Developments in Critical Climate Technology

Collectively known as CCS, CO2 capture, transport and storage technologies are set to play a major role in reaching the global climate goals set out in the Paris Agreement to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. That's the view of the energy experts at SINTEF, and it's one shared by the International Energy Agency (IEA) which calls CCS "an … Read more
14% of total emissions reductions by 2060 must come from CCS
