Feasibility study of heavy metal mining from subsurface reservoirs for renewable energy storage

Heavy metal demand is expected to increase as more of the world turns to electric vehicles and renewable energy storage systems. However, current supply of heavy metals is not sufficient to meet energy transition targets over the next decade due to limited available resources. Read more

Efficient Compositional Simulation of Reactive Transport in CO2 Storage

CO. 2. injection into geological formations triggers complex physical and chemical interactions at different time and length scales, which are critical to the evaluation of subsurface capacities, operational risks, and storage safety. Read more

Fully Funded PhD Studentship in EPSRC Centre for Doctor Training (CDT) - Resilient decarbonised Fuel Energy Systems.

Utilisation of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) as blend with petroleum-derived aviation fuels or standalone replacements offers an advantageous step towards decarbonised aviation, for foreseeable future, in response to the net-zero emission target by 2050. Read more

Colloidal Silica for Well Stabilisation during Borehole Sealing

Overview. This project is investigating the use of colloidal silica grout (which forms a hydrogel) in the long-term sealing of boreholes in the ground, to prevent subsequent upward fluid migration from rocks at depth to the surface. Read more

Microalgal Biorefineries

A major contemporary challenge in industrial manufacturing is the development of sustainable production processes. This includes reduced resource consumption and CO2 generation, and energy efficient operations with maximised product outputs. Read more

Engineering Doctorate (EngD): New exhaust gas clean up systems for the combustion of new, low carbon fuels in heavy duty engines

As a company, Eminox’s global strategy is to develop exhaust after-treatment systems (EATS) for on-road, non-road mobile machinery (NRMM), rail, marine and power generation internal combustion engines (ICE) that will eventually adopt Carbon-Free Alternative Fuels such as NH. Read more

Algal Bioplastics

Single use plastic is a major environmental concern that is urgently in need of innovative solutions. Microalgae are photosynthetic organisms that can be employed to develop processes that are environmentally sustainable. Read more

Experimental and Simulation Study on Mitigation of Fire and Explosion Using Water Mist

There has been a great deal of interest in the use of water based explosion suppression systems, designed to mitigate or reduce the impact of thermal explosions and their consequential overpressures. Read more
