At SiriNor we are committed to making aviation emission-free. We develop electric jet turbines that will eliminate the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions.Learn more
Our purpose is to deliver true zero-emission engines which will benefit our planet by eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from aviation.
Our stakeholders range from our shareholders and employees to anyone who is, or will be, affected by climate change - and we are committed to creating value for them all.
Aviation emits about one billion tons of CO2 every year. This is equivalent to about 3% of global anthropogenic CO2 emissions, a figure that is set to increase dramatically over the next decades. By 2050, aviation may, according to the World Economic Forum, be responsible for 22% of global emissions unless decisive action is taken now.
CO2 is just part of the issue. CO2 only makes up about 1/3 of aviation’s climate footprint. The other greenhouse gas emissions, such as NOx and contrails, are not related to carbon but to the process of combustion, and they cannot be tackled by decarbonisation schemes such as Sustainable Aviation Fuels.
The only way to deal with all the climate emissions from aviation, is to replace today’s combustion engines with electric engines, and that is what we offer at SiriNor. We will eliminate both CO2 and non-CO2 effects on climate with our patent pending, true zero-emission, electric jet turbines.
The natural beauty of Norway is the inspiration for SiriNor. Our story began where mountains touch the sky and fjords meet the ocean.
In Ålesund, Norway, our founder Lars Erik Robertsen looked up at the contrails crisscrossing the clear, blue sky and was inspired to make a difference. He decided to develop a revolutionary jet turbine that would not only end greenhouse gas emissions but would also be less complex and less costly than conventional engines. Robertsen and Pramod Vaditya, an experienced aerospace engineer from Hyderabad, India, set out on the journey which has so far led to the development of two electric jet turbine concepts.
Today our dedicated team of pioneering innovators are committed to developing zero emission jet turbines for a range of applications. We aim for our first turbines to be flight-proven and ready for take-off by 2028.
Aviation has the potential to become our most sustainable mode of mass transportation, but for this potential to be realised, action must be taken now.
So far, aviation's efforts to reduce emissions - through e.g. improved fuel efficiency and the inclusion of Sustainable Aviation Fuels - have been outpaced by the industry’s tremendous growth. The number of flights globally is trending towards a doubling by 2050. Without sustainable solutions in place, this massive growth will have a destructive impact on the climate and our planet.
Electric propulsion is the future of sustainable aviation, and SiriNor will be at the centre of this global disruption with our unique, patent pending, true zero-emission, electric jet turbines.
We will let you take to the skies without emissions and without “flight shame”.
Our turbines are, simply put, electric compressors. By eliminating internal combustion we reduce both cost and complexity compared to conventional jet turbines. Our turbines will also reduce maintenance cost thereby lowering the total-cost-of-ownership.
Our unique turbines will form part of an electric propulsion system. The energy needed to power the turbines can be drawn from either battery packs or hydrogen fuel cells. Liquid hydrogen and fuel cells in combination with our jet turbines will allow for sustainable aviation with larger aircraft, covering greater distances at higher speeds than other sustainable aviation engine concepts.
"It has been said, that we cannot become what we need to be, by remaining what we are. Therefore, we are determined to disrupt the industry and the way we think of aviation. The knowledge and resources are there, we just need to challenge them."
