  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Plant adaptations to wetland conditions as regulators of methane oxidation and emissions from tropical wetlands
  Dr S Sjögersten
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Natural wetlands are the greatest emitters of atmospheric methane. Plants are important controls of this as they can both stimulate high methane production and suppress emissions by releasing oxygen into the ground supporting bacterially mediated oxidation of methane drastically cutting emissions.
  Seismically triggered greenhouse gas eruptions from carbon rich wetland environments
  Dr N Kettridge, Dr S Ullah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Wetlands represent the largest and most uncertain global methane source (Kirschke et al., 2013).
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  Quaternary and methylated amine cycle in coastal oceans: new genes, novel microbes and unexpected pathways
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Dr K Purdy
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. New genes and novel microbes. Unexpected pathways. World-leading supervisory team on climate-change microbiology.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Effects of changing climate on a tropical peat in Brazil: greenhouse gas sink or source?
  Dr G Abbott
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Campina do Encantado is a tropical low-altitude bog (at sea level) that produces methane in São Paulo State, Brazil (under Tropical Forest).
  (MERI) Assessment of fugitive methane gas emissions from UK fracking operations using unmanned aerial vehicle surveys and fixed-site monitoring (CASE studentship)
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr G Allen, Dr P Williams, Dr H Ricketts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH ENVIROTECH LIMITED. Measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industry informs many environmental process studies, ranging from shorter-term assessments of air quality and its impacts on human health, to longer term understanding of climate change.
  Catalytic conversion of syngas to oxygenates for the efficient upgrading of biogas
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Prof J Anderson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Focus of this PhD project will be on the efficient upgrading of biogas, produced from the anaerobic digestion of organic material.
  Conversion of Wastewaters and Organic Waste into Chemicals, Energy and Organic Fertiliser.
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr G I Paton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. In Scotland over 300 million cubic meters of municipal wastewaters and 5 million tonnes of organic waste, as dry matter, (e.g.
