SINTEF is Scandinavia’s largest independent research organisation. Every year we carry out several thousand projects for customers large and small.
SINTEF is a broad, multidisciplinary research organisation with international top-level expertise in the fields of technology, the natural sciences, medicine and the social sciences. We conduct contract R&D as a partner for the private and public sectors, and we are one of the largest contract research institutions in Europe. Our vision is Technology for a better society. There are two departments of SINTEF involved: SINTEF Industry and SINTEF Energy.


WPs in which the partner will carry out activities: Main activities: WP4. All partners involved: WP1, WP5, WP6, WP7, WP8.


Lead of Task 4.4: Carbon capture, utilisation and or storage. This task is a demo-campaign consisting of a hybrid solar panel matrix and a heat pump integrated to SINTEF’s solvent-based CO2 capture pilot plant, at Tiller, Norway. The heat pump will be used to as an auxiliary thermal energy booster that upgrades waste-heat (available) and or low temperature heat from the hybrid panels for steam production.
