Resource efficient metal production from a clean industry
Metal production_main tekst
Metal Production is an interdisciplinary Centre for Research-based Innovation (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.
The main goal of Metal Production is to enable industrial innovation and give the industry long term access to world class fundamental competence and candidates. This will enable the industry to maintain its position at the forefront of sustainable innovation.
Green production of silicon is just around the corner
February 23, 2023 NTNU has taken out a patent for an industrial process that will remove all direct emissions of CO2 and NOx. The process has been named SisAl. With today’s technology, CO2 is formed when quartz reacts with carbon. Instead of carbon, the SisAl process uses aluminium as a reducing agent, thus avoiding the formation of CO2. Twenty-two partners in research and industry in Europe and South Africa have developed the process based on NTNU’s patent. You can read more about the project in this recently published article in Norwegian SciTech.
