  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  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%.
  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.
  Large-scale Bioenergy with Carbon Capture & Storage
  Dr A Lea-Langton, Dr A Welfle, Dr C Gough
Application Deadline: 12 May 2019
Background. More than 85% of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) scenarios for achieving the emissions targets of the ‘Paris Agreement’ are reliant on an ability to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
  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.
  System design on co-production of transport fuel and value-added chemicals from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
There is a national and global imperative to reduce reliance upon fossil fuels and, at the same time, to improve the efficiency of natural and renewable resource utilisation.
  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.
  Mechanical Characterisation of Poly-Lactic Acid (PLA) bioplastic from Biomass and its digestibility in a Thermophilic anaerobic digestion (AD) process.
  Dr S Tedesco
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. AMRC-ST-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. The research focuses on testing bioplastic PLA for applications within the packaging industry.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round
Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
