  Biomass fractionation into high-value fuels and chemicals
  Dr P Blanco-Sanchez
Applications accepted all year round
Self-funded applications are invited for a three-year PhD programme, to be undertaken within the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University.
  Biomass-assisted Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide
  Dr J McGregor
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Carbon dioxide has the potential to be utilised as a carbon source for the production of chemicals, providing new routes to oxygenates and providing an economic offset to the costs of carbon sequestration.
  Biomediation and Resource Recovery from Effluents Using Algae
  Dr M Stanley, Dr S Jubeau, Dr M Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. Water is invaluable for life on Earth; however, as a resource it is under threat due to an increasing population and resultant growth in agriculture and industry, leading to excessive nutrient/contaminant enrichment of water bodies.
  Advanced fuel quality control in biomass torrefaction process
  Dr J Li
Applications accepted all year round
Biomass residues and waste, have great potential to deliver a significant contribution to the primary energy demand while meeting low carbon objectives.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round
Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  Biomass/CO2 Conversion to Chemicals and Energy
  Dr X Wang, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Fossil fuels coal, petroleum crude oil and natural gas, as sources of thermal energy, fuels and chemicals, have been predominant in the world’s energy supply.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. The process conditions of pyrolysis can alter the proportions of gas, solid and liquid products.
  Synthesis of fluorescent carbon dots from biomass derivatives
  Prof M Titirici
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
We are seeking a PhD student to join the Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College within the research group of Prof. Titirici to investigate the synthesis of fluorescent carbon dots from biomass derivatives produced using hydrothermal processes and to understand their interaction with light.
  Modelling and Simulation of Biomass Pyrolysis and Gasification & Syngas Cleaning using Plasma and Catalytic Technologies
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round
Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. To use this syngas for gas turbine power plants, the main technical barrier is the high tar composition in such syngas.
  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.
