Metal Production


Metal Production is an interdisciplinary Centre for Innovation-based Research (SFI). During the next decades, the Norwegian metal industry will need to achieve even higher-quality output with more efficient use of resources and energy.



Research Groups



A research group covering electrochemical energy, corrosion and surface science and electrolysis

Inorganic Materials and Ceramics

This research group covers oxides for energy technology, ferroic oxides, materials synthesis and ceramic processing, refractory materials and non-oxide ceramics

Physical Metallurgy

This group includes the NanoSPD group led by Hans Roven and the Solidification and Casting group led by Lars Arnberg.

Resources, Energy & Environment

The recycling of metals is a modern field in metallurgy. The Resources, Energy & Environment group recycles all types of metals such as iron, silicon, aluminum and rare earth elements
