  Synthesis and Investigation of Novel Ionic Conductors
  Dr A McLaughlin, Dr A Martinez-Felipe
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Fuel cells convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency and low emission of pollutants. In a fuel cell, the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water and electricity and as such provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study a frontier technology to decrease the overall current energy penalty of the biogas upgrading process.
  Catalytic conversion of syngas to oxygenates for the efficient upgrading of biogas
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Prof J Anderson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Focus of this PhD project will be on the efficient upgrading of biogas, produced from the anaerobic digestion of organic material.
  Development of advanced adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This experimental project will face the global challenge of reducing emissions from industrial activities. The research candidate will develop advanced adsorbent materials aiming at the separation of undesired species and/or impurities from industrial gas mixtures.
  Heat pump assisted distillation for the energy efficient separation of the liquid phase products from anaerobic digestion
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr A Majumder
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This project is part of a wider research programme into biological routes for the synthesis of chemical products. A key element of this approach is the separation of the chemical products from the aqueous broths produced by the bioreactors/anaerobic digestors, which is commonly achieved via distillation.
  Hybrid Catalytic Systems for Sustainable Chemical Processing
  Dr X Wang, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Catalysis plays a critical role in modern society, where 90% of all chemical processes involve heterogeneous catalysts. Nevertheless, heterogeneous and biological catalysis is still considered as one of the top 24 challenges in chemistry when asking “what’s next”.
  Microwave-assisted pre-treatment for the cost-effective anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic substrates
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising technology for the treatment of organic solid waste and wastewater, as it combines energy recovery with waste treatment.
  Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Production of Chemicals and Materials
The University of Aberdeen has been awarded over £1million in funding to establish a centre that will train a new generation of researchers to develop technologies that convert organic waste into sustainable materials.
  Cost and efficiency focused optimisation of domestic waste water heat recovery application
  Dr A Ramezanpour
Applications accepted all year round
