We focus on five social themes.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
The Control Union Certifications (CUC) Consortium - in which TNO is represented - has been accepted as the fourth Independent Laboratory world-wide as defined by the United States Coast Guard, (USCG) to test and certify Ballast Water Management Systems (BWMS).
This status will enable CUC in conjunction with its partners Control Union, TNO, NIOZ, IMARES, GoConsult and Dr. Matej David Consult to carry out BWMS tests for USCG Type Approval according to 46 CFR 162.060. CUC Independent Laboratory combines experience inspecting offshore equipment and quality management with more than 10 years of ballast water management system testing of its sub-labs. CUC Independent Laboratory can now offer a superior testing service to vendors seeking USCG Type Approval for their ballast water management systems. The demand for approved systems is high because US legislation regarding ballast water discharge is already in place and the availability of Independent Labs is limited. Thus far, no ballast water management system certificates have been issued by the USCG.
The project is another example of TNO's contribution in the "Maritime Consortium of Environmental Science and Technology" (MUST) group, in which NIOZ, IMARES, DELTARES and TNO are joining forces for sustainable exploration of the global oceans.
