Where has all of the carbon gone? Understanding the molecular mechanisms of long-term soil carbon capture

Soils, while unglamorous, form the basis of the terrestrial biosphere and are ultimately the source of the majority of the food that we eat, yet fundamental aspects of how soils form and how they store carbon are poorly understood. Read more

Integrated Framework for Carbon Stocks and Flows at the City Level: Developing an Integrated Framework for City-Level Carbon Accounting

​​Cities are engines of economic growth and they would have to play a significant role in the decarbonisation process.  Many cities have responded to the climate issue by declaring climate emergencies and setting plans for rapid decarbonisation. Read more

Sustainable Carbon Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Energy Conversion in Hydrogen Fuel Cells

The Hydrogen Economy will help to shift society away from fossil fuels and contribute to decarbonisation. Electrochemical processes are at the heart of the hydrogen economy providing a means to convert renewable energy into green hydrogen via electrolysis or converting hydrogen into electrical power using fuel cells.

Super-low carbon live music: trialling new approaches to support sector transformation

Following the publication of the Tyndall Centre ‘super-low carbon live music roadmap’ (see www.tyndall.manchester.ac.uk/research/reports/), we are seeking a PhD candidate to expand the knowledge base on climate action in the live music sector. Read more

Recycled carbon fibre-reinforced concrete

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Corrosion of reinforcing steel embedded within low carbon cement concretes made without Portland cement

Corrosion of reinforcing steel in conventional Portland Cement (PC)-based concretes exposed in challenging environments is a common problem, leading to cracking and spalling and its repair is a big cost to the UK economy. Read more

Net zero housing retrofits - assuring a sustainable low-carbon transition in the domestic sector

The UK has committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The UK's 29 million houses represent 14% of total emissions (CCC, 2019), with nearly 90% of these built more than 20 years ago before stricter energy efficiency standards came into force (Ince & Marvin, 2019). Read more

Carbon leakage and trade policy

Carbon leakage occurs when the introduction of environmental policies such as carbon pricing in a country or a coalition of countries leads emissions to increase in third countries with laxer environmental policies. Read more
