Together the owner institutes of WEAG possess significant resources, with over 800 researchers and extensive laboratory and technical facilities.

  • NILU Polska

    NILU Polska is involved in research regarding broadly defined environment protection and activities for transferring BATs into the Polish market, especially in the scope of energetic use of biomass, waste management and emission reduction.

  • Logo InnoSense


    InnoSense is an unique intelligent micro sensor platform for monitoring air quality.

    For one year, the period from 15th of October 2016 to 15th of October 2017, there has been a 91% correlation between the InnoSense unit located at Oslo/Hjortnes, compared to the air quality reference station at Oslo/Hjortnes. This level of correlation, reliability and longevity has never before been demonstrated for any micro sensor platform.

    • New product

      NILU Particulate Fallout Collector – microplastics

      Measurement of Atmospheric transport and deposition of microplastics possible now

      The NILU Particulate Fallout Collector and the NILU Precipitation Collector have now been modified to also collect microplastics in deposition by introducing a stainless steel sampler, minimizing contamination.

      In addition to the given performance criteria, factors such as construction materials, ease of handling, cleaning and transportability determined the shape and dimensions of the collectors.
