NIBIO is a project driven research institute and collects approximately 100 million NOK annually in project funding from both national and international sources. A lot of activity is carried out through EU and EEA-projects and we also participate in research projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America. NIBIO coordinates several large international projects with a particular focus on food security and climate change. The list of projects is not complete.

Producing advanced bio-based fertilizers from fisheries wastes - SEA2LAND

The aim of SEA2LAND is to valorize waste/residues from fishereis and aquaculture as fertilisers and soil improvers.

This is a European project with partners from Malta and other Meditranean countries in the south to Norway in the north as well as in Chile in South America. A large number of products will be developed and tested across Europe. The goal is to develop products ready for market.

In Norway we will focus on fish sludge from aquaculture.

Greenhouse gas emissions from biogas digestate applications to rice production systems

Digestate, organic residues from biogas production, are good fertilizers. However, application of digestate can stimulate greenhouse gas production. Greenhouse gas emission from rice production is particularly problematic, because rice is grown flooded. This project, RICEDIG aims to find how digestate application affect greenhouse gas emissions in flooded rice production systems.

EPIC ROADS - Ecology in Practice: improving infrastructure habitats along roads

Habitats related to Transport Infrastructures (HTI) may reduce negative impacts on biodiversity and improve landscape connectivity, given their proper design and construction. Here the transportation sector can contribute to halt the loss of biodiversity and secure ecosystem services in Europe through planning, construction and management based on ecological knowledge.
