Numerical modelling and design of geothermal heat recovery from subsurface systems

  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
Sedimentary basins are ubiquitous, naturally porous and permeable, and the geothermal heat in these basins can be extracted with geologic water or CO. Read more

Multi-scale characterisation of the subsurface system for decarbonation energy (Digital Rock Manchester)

The subsurface system can act as a large-scale, low-cost and safe system for huge storage for either energy or waste, which provides provide important solutions to carbon management in order to tackle the global climate crisis and meet the Net-Zero target. Read more

Deep learning assisted imaging analysis and upscaling (Digital Rock Manchester)

Multi-scale and dynamic imaging techniques have been demonstrated to be one of the powerful tools in materials characterisation. However, the images cannot always satisfy the scientific of industrial requirement. 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

Fluid-rock interaction in the Cretaceous Atlantic rift and influence on rift lake chemistry, diagenesis, and sources of CO2

Background. The connection between tectonic evolution, magmatism, and hydrothermal fluid flow along continental margins is critical to predicting mineralizations, petroleum and geothermal energy systems. 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

Formulating Micro-Fibrillated Cellulose as Sustainable Barrier Coating for Fibre-based Packaging

Packaging is essential to consumer goods as it protects its content, such as food, from damage and prolongs shelf life. Single use plastics have been common materials used by the packaging industry as they offer excellent barrier properties. Read more

Advanced CFD methods for porous media flows

Applications are invited to work on the development of advanced modelling techniques, based on existing novel high resolution, massively parallel schemes applicable to porous-media Simulations can include flows in porous media with the direct pore simulations as well as Darcy flows. Read more

Construction of Predictive Models for Pre-screening of Sustainable Aviation Fuels

Utilisation of novel Sustainable Aviation Fuels, as a blend or standalone replacement of petroleum-based fuels, in aviation sector is subject to a challenging, and stringent multi-stage approval process, requiring tests that exceed millions of pounds in tests, tens of thousands of liters of fuel, years of testing, and sustained commitment of resources for fuel producers.

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.
