Folketrygdfondet is an active, value-oriented, long-term manager which administers the Government Pension Fund Norway following rules set by the Ministry of Finance mandate requiring them to invest in equities and fixed-income instruments in a counter-cyclical manner in Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden.The strategic benchmark stipulates the allocations to equities and fixed-income, with a regional split between Norway and the rest of the Nordic region.The firm manages the Government Pension Fund Norway counter-cyclically, trading against the market trend during periods of major price fluctuations. They rebalance the portfolio to prevent the asset allocation from deviating too much from the strategic benchmark, which they believe has a stabilizing effect on financial markets and is profitable. They favor counter-cyclical investments, including beyond what is directly required by the mandate's rebalancing requirement.Folketrygdfondet seeks to invest in well-run companies that they expect to generate returns in the long-term. Managers apply qualitative and quantitative criteria to make investments, focusing on fundamental factors such as macroeconomic assessments, performance trends, equity returns, capital structure, pricing, cash flow and analyses of corporate governance, environmental and social matters. They extract liquidity premiums by investing in securities that are less liquid than the benchmark index.The Ministry of Finance regularly commissions an external company to compare Folketrygdfondet's costs and achieved additional returns in the management of the Government Pension Fund Norway with other large funds.

MemfoACT has a new carbon membrane solution for (among others) upgrading of biogas to vehicle fuel quality and intend to produce carbon membrane modules and sell biomethane production units to existing biogas plants.Membrane separation enables separation of gases without the use of chemicals or other contaminants. Synthetic membranes imitate natures own separation method, known from internal organs such as kidneys and lungs where urea and oxygen are separated from blood. The special feature of the carbon membrane is its ability to combine high selectivity with high productivity which results in low gas separation costs.The production of biomethane involves separating CO2 from methane, which are the main gases present in biogas.
