SINTEF is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia.
Over the last 60 years, we have created value and innovation through knowledge generation and development of technological solutions that are brought into practical use. Today, SINTEF is a broadly based, multidisciplinary research institute with international top-level expertise in technology, medicine and the social sciences.

Link with BRAVO EIP
SINTEF will be part of the development of a proposal in general but will focus mainly on co-processing in cement industry – to include possible test piloting with cement industry partners. SINTEF is also interested in developing technology to process bauxite to alumina, other than the Bayer process, that does not result in a waste problem.
