Background and activities

Research Project: HyGreGel (Hybrid Green Gel)

This project will develop competence and technology within in-depth gel placement for water diversion. New hybrid nanogel systems will be developed based on "green" technology. The gel systems will be based on novel multifunctional hybrid polymers prepared at SINTEF Materials and Chemistry (FunzioNano™) and polyelectrolyte complexes developed at Kansas University. Testing infrastructures at NTNU IPT, NTNU NanoLab and SINTEF Petroleum Research will be used in the experimental work.
