  Novel technologies for increasing coal seam permeability
  Dr K Steel
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Extraction of coal seam gas (CSG) is now a multi-billion dollar export industry in Australia, providing jobs and revenue for many decades.
  Machine Learning for Understanding the Political Economy of a Global Coal Phase-Out
  Prof J Minx, Prof J Ford, Prof L Berrang-Ford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
A timely phase-out of coal is a necessary condition to achieve the ambitious long-term climate goals of the Paris Agreement (Rockström et al 2017) and a major step towards a more responsible management and use of natural resources and the environment as a whole.
  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
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.
  Investigating geothermal heat resources of legacy mine workings, why are some mine waters hotter than others? CASE supported by The Coal Authority
  Dr C McDermott, Dr S. Gilfillan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. Why are some mine waters hotter than others? What controls the mine water temperature available for geothermal use? Can the water temperature and its resilience be modelled and predicted?.
  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Prof J Watson
Applications accepted all year round
Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  Severe air pollution in South Africa: A view from space
  Dr E Marais, Dr M Barkley
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Exposure to air pollution affects us at all stages of development. South Africa is one of the global hotspots of air pollution due to proliferation of coal-fired power plants, energy-intensive industries, traffic congestion, and domestic burning of fuelwood and trash.
  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.
  Carbon Negative Cementised Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate Building Products
  Dr M S Imbabi, Dr W Afzal, Prof F P Glasser
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The proposed PhD will investigate the production of different granularity and morphology Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate (PMC) derivative building products to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the performance of the built environment.
  Future energy needs and engineering reality
  Dr H Tan
Applications accepted all year round
The world is poised on the brink of two historic energy transformations. replacing oil with electricity in transportation, and replacing high carbon, finite-supply coal and natural gas with renewable wind and solar electricity production.
  Initiating Near REal time Demand response (INRED)
  Dr N Ozkan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
