Future Materials

We believe success in development of new materials and products comes through the enhancement of existing products properties. Production of advanced products requires fundamental understanding of the materials’ composition and properties. Future Materials excel at the development of new materials. And we aim to get even better!

The global demand for advanced materials based on micro- and nanoparticles is growing at a rapid rate – and the competition to reach the market is ever increasing.

We offer test facilities, competence and a professional network for developing sustainable advanced materials for your company’s future products and processes. We focus on the material itself and together we find the solutions of the future!

Kickstart towards 2030- recycled plastics

In 2022, our partner, Norner, started an interdisciplinary collaboration project where the aim was for the 10 participating companies to increase the proportion of recycled plastic in their production. An interdisciplinary collaborative project was motivating. They found great motivation in developing an interdisciplinary collaborative project where they can help each other develop circular solutions.

Safe use of recycled plastics for cosmetics

HDPE bottles for Personal Care and Cosmetic products (Cosmetics) are an attractive segment for the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials. The availability is poor for materials that have good enough mechanical properties and purity. The latter can cause odour and migration of substances which needs safety documentation. Can a 3-layer structure be the solution?

Transforming aquaculture into a circular economy by 2030

In December 2022, the Circular Solutions for the Aquaculture Industry project (SirkAQ) was awarded a grant of almost NOK 70 million from the government’s Green Platform support scheme. The Green Platform is a national initiative to support research- and innovation-driven green restructuring in trade and industry.
