  Transforming plastic waste into devices for water treatment
  Dr S Lau
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD project is available to transform plastic waste into devices for water purification. The successful applicant will work closely together with a collaborative network of researchers designing next-generation filters to remove organic, inorganic and metallic toxicants and pollutants from various waste water streams.
  Using psychology to tackle the problem of waste plastic
  Dr T Webb, Dr C Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste plastic can have a devastating effect on the environment, threatening the biodiversity of our oceans and introducing micro-plastics into the food chain.
  Ecological impacts of microplastic pollution in freshwater habitats

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Developing ecological solutions to plastic pollution (COLEUPML20ARIES)
  Dr M Cole, Dr T Tolhurst
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Microplastic debris is a prolific environmental contaminant, impacting on marine ecosystems across the globe.
  PhD Studentship in Rapid Ionic-liquid Screening for Enhanced Recycling Screening (RISERS)
  Dr A Brandt-Talbot, Prof P Fennell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are inviting applications of motivated candidates for a PhD studentship in the exciting global challenge of ‘Advanced plastic recycling’.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. The process conditions of pyrolysis can alter the proportions of gas, solid and liquid products.
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Redefining Single Use Plastics: Life Cycle Analysis
  Dr RH Rothman, Prof P Styring
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently > 7.3 billion tons of plastic in the Earth System, rising to 40 Bt by 2050. ~10 Mt of plastics reach the oceans every year; 12 Bt are projected to be in landfill by 2050.
