  Process Simulation and Technical Evaluation of Solid Adsorbents for Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. In addition to solvent based carbon capture, solid adsorbents for carbon capture have attracted researchers’ interest.
  Process Modelling and Flexibility Study of Coal-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coal is the major primary energy source in many countries such as China and India. Coal-fired power plants are the largest single sources of CO2 emissions.
  Process Simulation, System Identification, Model Reduction and Process Control of Solvent Based Carbon Capture for Power Plants
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. We have pilot plants or even large scale commercial deployment of solvent based carbon capture plants.
  Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants.
  Molecular Modelling and Simulation for Solid Adsorbents for Industrial Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. In addition to solvent based carbon capture, solid adsorbents for carbon capture have attracted researchers’ interest.
  Computational design of bio-inspired silica materials for carbon capture
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Feasibility of Shipboard Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilisation
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Dominic Hudson. Co-supervisor Dr. Lindsay-Marie Armstrong. Project description. Global shipping is responsible for 3.1% of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions (IMO, 3rd Greenhouse Gas report, 2014), yet is outside of UNFCCC commitments to reduce emissions.
  Techno‐Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian, Dr A Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change.
  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  Electrochemical Conversion of Captured Carbon Dioxide
  Prof A Cowan
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) is anticipated to be a key technology for enabling industrial decarbonisation. Critical industries such as glass and steel manufacture will continue to be significant emitters of CO2 for the foreseeable future.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  Centres for Doctoral Training - 4 Year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year.
  PhD studentship opportunity in integrated Carbon Dioxide Capture and Utilisation
  Dr M Duyar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a fully funded Ph.D. project focusing on developing dual function materials (DFMs) that can capture carbon dioxide from an emission source and release it as a high value fuel or chemical upon exposure to a reducing co-reactant.
  Simulation, optimization and control of fluid catalytic cracking unit for CO2 minimization
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr Y John, Dr R Patel, Prof I Mujtaba
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The simulation model of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit and many other refinery processes maximise the yields of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, propylene and minimise the yields of CO2.
  Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Net-Zero Energy Transition, Planning and Management in the Global South (Developing Economy)
  Prof T Olaniyi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy is a universal currency and is considered in modern economic concept as fuel, measured by the capability to do work or the conversion of the capability to do work into motion, which embraces physical, environmental and socio-economic disciplines and pedagogies.
