From bio filtration to seeing in the dark – the 2019 Sprint has begun

Thursday 05 Sep 19
12 radically thinking research teams have jumped into the deep water to see if their ideas can work or not. They have three months to test their ideas and by December, it will be clearer if e.g. the bio filtration will solve H2S issues or you can see through crude oil.

The Radical Innovation Spring 2019 was kicked off this week with 12 new exciting projects. It is the third time the Radical Innovation Sprint takes place within the network of Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology and with external partners. 

The projects were selected anonymously by an external committee and span the entire range of topics related to Oil and Gas production in Denmark from improved production, cost and materials saving to improved environmental footprint related to the production.

“We are looking forward to three challenging, enlightening and fun months of collaboration. This period will be of high intensity for the researchers and we are there to support them to test their ideas,” tells Karen Guldbæk Schmidt, Advisor at DHRTC.

The principal investigators for the Radical Innovation Sprint 2019 are:
Andreas Libonati Brock , DTU Environment
Anil Suri / Vittorio Boffa, AAU, Dep. Of Chemistry and Bioscience
Christian Marcus Pedersen. KU, Dep. Of Chemistry
Hamed Sanei, AU Geoscience
Helle Foged Christensen, GEO
Henrik Rasmus Andersen. DTU Environment
Kamaldeep Sharma, AAU, Dep. Of Energy Technology
Nicolas Bovet, DHRTC
Ole Rønø Clausen, AU Geoscience
Peter Frykman, GEUS
Stefan Trapp. DTU Environment
Tian Wang, DTU Chemical Engineering

Follow the work of the 12 researchers here on the web or on Instagram in the months to come as well as on DHRTC Technology Conference.
