SFI Dsolve is a centre for research-based innovation headed by the Arctic University of Norway UiT

Our research aims to reduce plastic litter and associated problems such as ghost fishing, macro and microplastic caused by the fishery and aquaculture industries. The goal is that traditional plastics in these sectors can be replaced with new biodegradable materials.

Our research is divided into six research areas headed by national research partners UiT Arctic University of Norway, SINTEF Ocean, SINTEF Industri, Norner AS, Norsus AS og SALT Lofoten AS / UiT. Dsolve is funded by the The Research Council of Norway and was opened in April 2020.

Centre for Research-Based Innovation (SFI)

Centres for Research-Based Innovation (SFI) enhance technology transfers, internationalization, and research training through a close and long-term collaboration between research-intensive companies and renowned research institutions. The research conducted within these centres must uphold a high international standard.

The Dsolve logo: The Dsolve name and the logo comprise multiple elements. Dsolve is pronounced “dissolve” and refers to our vision of developing new materials that are biodegradable in the marine environment. This process is illustrated by the D having broken apart and the loose bit forms the “l” of Dsolve. The word “solve” highlights our ambition to solve a major environmental problem.
