  Interconnecting two HVDC links using non-isolated DC/DC Converter
  Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR, Prof D Jovcic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology has been recognized as a solution for long-distance bulk-power transmission, asynchronous AC systems interconnections, interconnection of different regions requiring submarine and underground cables, and transmission of offshore wind power to shore.
  Exploring natural and artificial biofilms of acetogenic bacteria to improve microbial electrosynthesis rates
  Prof J Philips, Prof K. Koren
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial electrosynthesis is a novel biotechnological process for the conversion of excess renewable electricity and CO2 into biofuels or other organic compounds.
  CO2 catalytic conversion into fuels and fuel-precursors using biomass-derived H-donors - LEVERHULME
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project will deal with the global challenge of mitigating CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, by using CO2 as a raw-material to produce fuels and fuel-precursors.
  Conversion of waste plastics to fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 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.
  Efficient upgrading of biogas via plasma catalysis - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Mathematical simulation and optimisation of anaerobic digestion processes for the production of methane, hydrogen and chemicals - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  Sustainable conversion of biomass-based wastes into porous bio-carbons and their application in CO2 capture - LEVERHULME
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current most difficult challenge of biomass-based wastes is the lack of a volume-balancing set of applications and valorisation techniques which can decrease the large volumes that are sent to the landfill.
  Spatial and temporal roles of critical nodes in ecogeomorphic systems (ESR1)
  Dr L Turnbull-Lloyd, Prof J Wainwright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Critical nodes are considered an important feature of a system that have a great influence on shaping system processes.
  Photovoltaic based Energy Harvesting System for Smart Buildings
  Dr G Loumakis, Dr R Ramirez Iniguez, Dr S Sinanovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-007. Energy harvesting for low power consumption sensors is becoming an increasingly important topic. This is due to the ever-higher number of devices connected to the Internet and the proliferation of wireless sensors and embedded systems found in indoor environments for a variety of applications.
