In Scotland, as progression is made towards a goal of zero waste to landfill, it is considered that phytoremediation utilising crops for biomass may provide opportunity to remediate contaminated waste soil whilst obtaining end products such as biodiesel, wood, or fibre with bioenergy crops viewed as a clean renewable source of energy.
  Quantifying the impacts of parasitism on livestock greenhouse gas emissions
  Dr N Fox
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
It is widely recognised that greenhouse gases (GHGs) are a major contributor to climate change, and livestock are responsible for more GHG emissions than all other food sources.
