Our current projects are: The Database for Zero Emission Construction Machinery, The Sahara Forest Project and The Ocean Forest.
Database: Zero Emission Construction Equipment
Electric construction machinery has a lot of benefits including GHG emission reduction, no direct air pollution, less noise pollution and lower running costs. Bellona has taken up the task of developing a database which combines all the available electric construction machinery and the equipment which can help eliminate emissions and reduce noise from the site.
Sahara Forest Project
The Sahara Forest Project AS aims to create innovative environmental solutions to food, water and energy shortages in desert conditions. The company’s technologies are creating arable land in some of the world’s hottest places. The Bellona Foundation holds shares in the SFP.
The Ocean Forest Project is a partnership between the Bellona Foundation and the Lerøy group. It aims to develop and establish new forms of biomass production tied to aquaculture, while at the same time finding solutions to the environmental impacts of aquaculture industry such as fish farming. The company will cooperate with a wide specter of researchers and technology providers to reduce the costs of biomass production at sea, as well as to develop products for food, feed, energy and raw materials for industry and agriculture.
