Assessing the impact of sterilisation on the usability of medical plastic waste

The burden of medical plastic waste has become an increasingly pressing concern in recent years. The healthcare industry relies heavily on single-use plastic items due to their convenience and hygiene factors, but this has led to a significant environmental problem. Read more

PhD opportunities in Sustainable Plastics

Join leading experts on behaviour change, public health protection, resource and waste management, governance aspects and sustainability design as we uncover sustainable solutions to plastic pollution. Read more

Finding a balance between operational energy, embedded carbon, embedded plastic and material re-use: Learning from the construction industry

Carbon zero targets are often presented in relation to operational energy. Design solutions to achieve these goals alone can, in many instances, result in increased embodied carbon and embodied plastic content and can reduce opportunities for material re-use. Read more

Investigating plastic behaviour in immature bones

There are many differences in mechanical properties between immature and adult bones. While adult bones have been studied extensively, particularly in relation to non-healthy ageing and the risk of fracture, there has been a lack of study on immature or young bones and their mechanical properties.

Plastic waste as a feedstock for sustainable solar-driven hydrogen generation

Plastics are one of the most widely used materials on the planet, due to their properties and relatively low cost. However, production and utilisation of plastics had significant environmental impacts including greenhouse gas emissions and pollution on land and in the sea. Read more

Predicting whipping induced failure in a cyclic progressive collapse analysis of ship structures

Supporting an ongoing collaboration between Newcastle University (Dr Simon Benson), Osaka University (Prof Akira Tatsumi) and University of Strathclyde (Dr Shen Li), this PhD project will contribute invaluable research in the field of marine structures, specifically investigating the cyclic progressive collapse of ships. Read more

Chemical Recycling of PET Plastic Using Thermo-Responsive Catalyst Supports

There is an urgent need to devise processes for recycling plastics, with an estimated 460 million metric tonnes of plastics being utilised worldwide in 2019 alone, of which only 10% is recycled globally, the remainder going to incineration, landfill or export. Read more

PhD Studentship in Shear band modelling of Plastic Bonded Explosives

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Mechanics of Materials leading to the award of a PhD degree. The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK student rate) provided by our research collaborators AWE, Aldermaston, Reading RG7 4PR. Read more
