HERO (Heating Road with Stored Solar Energi)

The overall aim is to reduce accidents and improve accessibility caused by snow and ice. Furthermore, the technical design and different materials for various applications will be investigated, and the purpose is also to optimize the system performance for the road together with heat source and to develop the control and regulation of the energy demand, which along with climate forecast is of fundamental importance for the functioning, effectiveness and efficiency.

NorDust 2: Nordic Road Dust Research Project

NorDust II is a common Nordic road dust research project gathering world leading Nordic competence in the research area to improve the understanding of the road dust system for optimization of abatement measures by improved emission modelling and scenario analyses. It builds on the knowledge produced during the NorDust project.

 The project content is based on the needs of the road authorities and the need for realistic descriptions of the physical processes in the road dust system used in the NORTRIP emission model as well as on knowledge from previous road dust related projects, especially NorDust.

​​​NordLCA+ (Life Cycle Analysis to assess and reduce climate impact of infrastructure building, part 2)

NordLCA+  is a continuation of the NordLCA project which lasted from 2017-2020. In general, the aim of NordLCA+ is to share experiences and knowledge about Life Cycle Analysis, in that way improving calculations and tools. The project will concentrate on Greenhouse Gas calculations.

Reduction of climate impact is highly prioritized, and we need methods and tools that help good decisions and choices through all processes. NordLCA+ will build on the work that has been done in NordLCA, and have more focus on BIM and EPD’s. Project goals are amongst others: improvement of (procedures for) LCA, linking LCA and BIM, and user-friendlier and better tools.
