GREENCDT Decontamination of carbonaceous nuclear waste streams for segregation and possible re-use

In the next decade, all of the graphite-moderated reactors (Magnox and AGR) in the UK are due to shut down. With additional contributions from Sellafield and research (RSRL and DSRL) reactors, there will be more than 85,000 tonnes of radioactive graphite waste with variable compositions of long-lived (e.g. Read more

Turning industrial waste into waste treatment materials

Almost all industrial processes generate some form of waste which needs to be disposed of safely to protect the environment. There are strict environmental laws and directives to prevent dangerous waste entering water supplies and food chains. Read more

Waste, Expenditure and Resilience: New Discourses, Politics and Public Performances (VP2242)

Waste, Expenditure and Resilience. New Discourses, Politics and Public Performances. The School of Business and Creative Industries at the University of the West of Scotland has a strong and growing research community of world-leading excellence. Read more

Valorisation of wet biomass waste for sustainable production of fuels and chemicals

Global solid waste production has seen a dramatic increase over recent years. It is recognised that the development of alternative, cleaner sources of fuels and chemicals from wet biomass waste can secure energy sources and address environmental concerns. Read more

Novel Cementitious Materials for the Next-Generation Infrastructure of Nuclear Waste Immobilization and Disposal.

The current design of repository infrastructure to safely contain, isolate, and dispose of high-level nuclear waste, such as heat-generating spent nuclear fuel (SNF), is limited in part by the materials available to construct this specialized infrastructure. Read more

PhD in Reuse and Recycling of Thermoplastic Composite Waste

The introduction of a Circular Economy has become increasingly important over recent years, driven by growing recognition of the need to tackle rising resource consumption and waste production. Read more

Cleaner Waste Systems through Simultaneous CO2 Capture and Utilisation

The water and wastewater sector are responsible for around 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Every day, large volumes of sludge are generated, which must be treated to reuse standard but the sector is constrained on the amount of waste it can process due to the poor biodegradability of solids. Read more

Reduce household food waste by using intelligent technology

Households are responsible for about 40 to 50 percent of total food waste. Reduction of household food waste would save the global economy over £190 billion and significantly reduce carbon emissions. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Water and Waste Infrastructure Systems Engineered for Resilience (Water-WISER)

A Water-WISER PhD offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the generation of new knowledge to improve water, waste & sanitation infrastructure and services for the poorest and most marginalised members of our global community. Read more
