The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper makingThis project will investigate the composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making, using a case study site at Milngavie, Scotland.
Sponsored by EPSRC, Cranfield University, Severn Trent Water, Thames Water, United Utilities and Scottish Water, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,500 (tax free) plus fees* for three years.
This project aims at developing new cleaning and waste management technologies based on the fundamental science underpinning the stability and properties of slurries containing hydrocarbons, scales and heavy metals.

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
Carbon dioxide has the potential to be utilised as a carbon source for the production of chemicals, providing new routes to oxygenates and providing an economic offset to the costs of carbon sequestration.
