  Greener Aircraft: Enhanced combustion of second-generation biofuels
  Dr K Knowles, Dr K Depuru Mohan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr H Toogood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  Optimization of hybrid heavy-duty diesel vehicle running on biofuels from waste resources.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. OA-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. In achieving an ultra-low carbon environment, the UK and other countries have proposed a future ban on vehicles operating solely on internal combustion engines (ICE).
  The Future of Sustainable Mobility: to analyse the critical interplay between markets, technologies and policies in the decarbonisation of transport
  Prof R Ackrill
Applications accepted all year round
As ever more countries seek to address the challenges of anthropogenic climate change, particular attention is being directed at personal mobility.
  Characterization of Some Biofuels from Waste Resources for Diesel Engine Applications.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Research Institute Reference Number. OA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. Biofuels such as alcohols and biodiesel from waste restaurant foods and agricultural residues have prospects as alternative source of energy for diesel engines in ensuring a low carbon environment.
  Synthesis of carbon based catalysts for the sustainable upgrade of agro-waste pyrolysis products into biofuels for rural areas
  Dr R Volpe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Pyrolysis provides a facile alternative for the upgrading of agro-waste to energy vectors. One of the most promising aspects of pyrolysis, is that small scale, inexpensive systems can be designed to produce biofuels from widely available waste in rural areas.
  Eco-efficient downstream processing of biofuels and bio-based chemicals
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Prof A Kiss
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
The aim of this project is to investigate and develop eco-efficient separation technologies (based on process intensification principles) for the downstream processing of biofuels and bio-based chemicals.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round
A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Development of an innovative techno-economic model for European biorefineries producing biofuels and chemicals
  Dr K Chong
Applications accepted all year round
Finding the most efficient way to process biomass is becoming increasingly important as competition for feedstocks increases due to the development of the bio-based industry within Europe.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round
Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
