UN Sustainability Goal 7:Affordable and clean energy

We develop new processes for production of biofuels from renewable forest-based raw materials, supporting UN sustainability subgoal 7.2:

UNs subgoal 7.2: “By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix”.

UNs subgoal 7.2

Examples of projects at RISE PFI supporting UN sustainability subgoal 7.2 are given below:


Biobased manganese ore sintering process


The Norwegian Biorefinery Laboratory


Production of ArbaCore pellets and feed protein from wood (ArbaFeed)


Norwegian Centre for Sustainable Bio-based Fuels and Energy


Coproduction of biocarbon reductant material and biogas transportation fuel

We continuously work on developing more energy-efficient processes, e.g. to achieve reduced energy consumption in energy-intensive pulp and paper processes, supporting UN sustainability subgoal 7.3:

UN subgoal 7.3: “By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency”.

UNs subgoal 7.3

Examples of projects at RISE PFI supporting UN sustainability subgoal 7.3 are given below:


New technology for improved control of the production of mechanical pulp from wood chips


Nanofibril production using plasma
