Teknova names new research group Clean Technologies

Teknova's recent efforts in project Cleantech Agder in combination with a consistent environmental technology project portfolio lead to the formation of a new research group last month.

Teknova names new research group Clean Technologies

Researchers gathered from Teknova's former process, renewable energy, and smart instrumentation groups form the new research direction lead by chief scientist Thore Jarle Sørensen. Timothy C Lommasson's main expertise is in solar energy, however, his research interest expands into distributed generation and storage to improve energy system efficiency. Anne Gerd Imenes main competency is in PV technology, but Imenes has lately also been part of driving the Cleantech Agder project together with Hege Indresand, an analytical chemist specialized in air pollution monitoring. The groups last member, Per Arne Kyrkjeeide's experience in clean technology and fuels heads Teknova's expertise in bio energy systems. The Clean Technologies project protfolio extends in research and development topics from water, air pollution, CO2 capture, solar energy, batteries, new materials, clean energy sources, biocarbon, purification and separation technologies, efficient production and separation processes, optimization, control, condition based maintenance and process intensification, waste to product, green buildings, to performinging measurments and analysis in all the areas. We are currently leading the project “Cleantech Agder” and the region's effeorts in Cleanweb.
