We have 27 Chemical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students in Birmingham

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

EPSRC supported EngD: Optimising a novel Carbon Capture Technology using Numerical Modelling

In a world facing climate crisis, it is vital to develop new ways to mitigate climate change. This project, funded by Origen Carbon Solutions, focuses on the modelling and optimisation of innovative Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Direct Air Capture (DAC) technologies. Read more

Advanced bubble-particle interaction modelling for sustainable resource recovery

Bubble-particle systems are encountered in a wide range of industrial and environmental applications (flotation, bioreactors, slurry bubble columns) but the complex dynamics and interactions make the design and operation of such systems particularly challenging. Read more

EPSRC supported EngD: Towards net-zero manufacture of chilled/refrigerated prepared foods

The Food Industry is the largest manufacture sector in the UK’s and the fourth highest industrial energy user. To contribute to the achievement of UK’s zero-carbon emissions targets by 2050, it is critical to act on those hotspots for energy demand and/or GHG emissions. Read more

EPSRC supported EngD project. Design and Optimisation of Surface Actives for Sustainable Hygiene Products

Wet wipes, coming in different shapes and forms such as baby wipes, wet towels, antibacterial hand wipes, medical textiles, are essential to our daily life as a practical hygiene and cleaning product. Read more

Mechanochemical Preparation of Biodegradable Pharmaceuticals

Twin-screw extrusion (TSE) has been demonstrated as an excellent means of industrialising mechanochemistry (instigation of a chemical reaction by mechanical energy, in the absence of solvents), overcoming the barriers involved in batch processing (such as ball milling) such as scalability and reaction temperature control. Read more

Sustainable processes – reducing single use plastics in healthcare

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

Glycan sensing technology for early and accurate cancer diagnosis

The Mendes group (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/healthcare-technologies/research/nanoengineering-surface-chemistry/index.aspx) in the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Birmingham welcomes applications from prospective PhD students to conduct work in the area of glycan sensing technology for cancer diagnosis.
