  Disappearing into thin air? Understanding degradation of plastic polymers in soils and freshwaters
  Dr B Surridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is one of the most pervasive threats facing global ecosystems. However, very little is known about the processes and governing factors that control the persistence of plastic polymers within environmental matrices such as soil or freshwater.
  Production of value-added chemicals and/or fuels from plastic wastes by unconventional technologies
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are the preferred materials in many important areas, such as packaging, beverage, construction, automobiles, medicine, etc., owing to their low cost, easy manufacture, and physicochemical properties.
  3D Print and Additive Manufacturing of Wax and Plastic Injection Moulds.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Bioplastic from sustainable feedstock – tackling the plastic challenge
  Dr K Tee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic is used in many applications, including packaging, construction material, parts in the automotive, biomedical devices and electronic components.
  Engineering Enzymes to address global plastic pollution problems
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. The process conditions of pyrolysis can alter the proportions of gas, solid and liquid products.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
  Prediction of engineering properties of thermomechanically treated aluminium alloys
  Prof H Assadi
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for one full-time EPSRC Industrial CASE (ICASE) PhD studentship for the project above at Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST), Brunel University London, starting from 1st October 2020.
  Discovery and Development of Biocatalytic Solutions to Mitigate Microplastic Pollution
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr R Hamed, Dr U Sivarajah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic contamination is a great ecological disaster facing modern society; a burden overwhelmingly heaped on the least economically developed countries.
