This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  (UKM GUP) Microbial genome engineering for sustainable production of bioplastic
  Dr A B Ramzi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial use of fossil fuel-derived products has brought about alarming concerns of climate change and environmental pollution particularly the harmful effects of recalcitrant waste such as synthetic plastics to the surrounding ecosystem.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn

The background of this research is to explore and integrate a range of mechanistic and machine learning based modelling strategies to develop a multilevel digital framework (digital twin) for industrial bioprocess dynamic simulation and prediction, online optimisation (online learning), and product quality control.
  Crude Sulfate Turpentine as a new source of biorenewable fuel
  Prof S B Bull, Dr C Chuck
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dwindling fossil fuel supplies and global warming mean there is an urgent need to develop biorenewable replacements for the petrochemical based fuels and lubricants consumed by the automotive industry.
