Asunción (Suni) Aranda, of the Norwegian Institute for Energy Technology (IFE), heads up the AlSiCal project, the aim of which is to develop and verify a technology for reducing the environmental impact from the production of aluminium, silica and calcium carbonate.
“I thought basing production at Herøya was a good choice,” says Jens Lehrmann, new general manager at Seram Coatings. “I have every confidence in the site – it’s a place where there’s plenty of access to skilled personnel who have experience of new industry.”
Every year sees the arrival of a selection of students who have competed for one of the few summer work experience placements at companies at Herøya Research Park. 14 students are working at Yara Technology and Equinor.
