  MSc (Res), Geographical & Earth Sciences: The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Cleaning and waste management during Oil and Gas decommissioning: destabilisation of colloidal suspensions
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr A Syed
Applications accepted all year round
Cleaning of oil and gas facilities and management of waste streams during decommissioning require a fundamental understanding of the stability and interactions of gels, foams, emulsions and sludge between them and other materials.
  Hydrocarbons, scales and heavy metals intertwined in colloidal suspensions: challenges and opportunities during cleaning and waste disposal in decommissioning - National Decommissioning Centre
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr W Afzal, Prof J Anderson
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
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.
  Microwave-assisted pre-treatment for the cost-effective anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic substrates
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising technology for the treatment of organic solid waste and wastewater, as it combines energy recovery with waste treatment.
  Conversion of Wastewaters and Organic Waste into Chemicals, Energy and Organic Fertiliser.
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr G I Paton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Background. In Scotland over 300 million cubic meters of municipal wastewaters and 5 million tonnes of organic waste, as dry matter, (e.g.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
  Downstream dispersal and transfer of macroplastics in river systems: a travel distance approach
  Dr M Powell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Environmental pollution by synthetic polymers (plastics) is a global problem that severely impacts ecosystem form and function, human health, natural resource management and environmental aesthetics.
  Biomass-assisted Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide
  Dr J McGregor
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
