Dam

New regulations mean huge sums must be spent on upgrading many of Norway's 6,000 dams. Cold climate scientists at Norut are measuring ice pressure and testing alternatives that may provide more accurate and cheaper rehabilitation.

Environment

Biosurfactants produced by Norwegian cold-tolerated bacteria enhance biodegradation of oil pollution. They can be used as a “greener” alternative to chemical surfactant.
