  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  New metalloenzymes for biomass degradation
  Prof P Walton, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Where will out fuels come from in the future and still prevent catastrophic climate change? This question lies at the heart of one of humankind’s major challenges.

  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat is the biggest form of energy use in the UK, accounting for more than 85% of the energy use in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  Biomass-assisted Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Biomass Combustion Ash in the Removal of Micro-pollutants from Water
  Dr S Soltani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% compared to the 1990 emission levels by the year 2050. Negative emission technologies such as biomass combustion with carbon capture is vital to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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%.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Predicting the dynamics of community biomass and size distributions in freshwater communities exposed to long-term warming. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)
  Dr D Barneche Rosado
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Dr Diego Barneche Rosado, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Modelling and Simulation of Biomass Pyrolysis and Gasification & Syngas Cleaning using Plasma and Catalytic Technologies
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
