Results from the ROBÆR Project in Western Norway

The project “Robust and sustainable communities; ROBÆR” is led by Stavanger Municipality in cooperation with the municipalities of Bergen, Randaberg, Sola and Sandnes. ExxonMobil, Bergknapp (green roof supplier) and The Skjæveland Group are sponsors contributing significant resources to the project. The project is led by Arne Sæbø of The Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO). The goal of the project is to develop blue-green solutions as tools for comprehensive and sustainable stormwater treatment in both the present and future climate conditions of Western Norway.

SGRA board member Tobias Emilsson is commissioned by the project to give expert inputs.

The ROBÆR project held a seminar September 16th, 2016 presenting project themes and results. Presentations from the seminar can be downloaded from the NIBIO net site here.
