  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Targeting enzymes for the degradation of plastics
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr G.R. Hemsworth, Dr D Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The release of plastics into the environment is having well-documented, harmful effects on much of the Earth’s wildlife. Plastics can be recycled but their conversion back into monomers is a significant challenge with many currently recycled plastics having properties inferior to the starting material.
  Plastic a new anthropogenic component of the geological cycle: its chemical and physical behaviour and transformation
  Prof S E Gabbott, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project will use a suite of cutting edge analytical techniques and experimental design to address an important and significant problem.
  The impacts of marine plastics on Galapagos seabirds
  Dr M Hudson, Dr C Valle, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Plastic pollution is of growing concern worldwide due to poor waste management and high consumer demand for single-use plastics (Moore, 2008).
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Sensing greenhouse gas emissions from weathering plastics using lab-on-the-sea technology
  Dr N Pamme
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
As plastics pass through the Earth System after disposal, they weather. As the polymers gradually oxidise, they lose mass producing methane, ethane, ethene and associated gasses.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S. J Reynolds
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
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.
  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  Plastics in fishmeal production from marine sources- characterisation, methods and risk modelling
  Dr M Hudson, Prof J Langley, Dr R Marsh, Prof I Williams
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Fishmeal makes an important contribution to global food security, providing an essential nutritional component in feed manufacture for aquaculture and livestock…
  Micro- and nanoplastics: the fate and the impact on marine life
  Dr S Yang, Dr W Norton
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
By 2015, humans had generated 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics, 6.3 billion tons of which had already become waste. Of that waste total, only 9 percent was recycled, 12 percent was incinerated and 79 percent accumulated in landfills or the natural environment.
