Isotopic fractionation of cadmium during continental weathering

The burial of organic matter in the ocean is a major component of the global carbon cycle, which impacts on global climate. Recent work has indicated that the isotopic composition of the trace element cadmium may be capable of recording variations in marine organic matter burial in the past. Read more

Understanding the hydration of ferrite in Portland cement

To increase resource use efficiency in the UK cement industry, the formulation of Portland cement clinker will need to include a higher amount of ferrite minerals, but the fundamental understanding of hydration (reaction with water) of those minerals are still lacking. Read more

Developing novel iron-rich cement

The cement and steel sectors are foundational to the UK and are essential to construct our infrastructure. Cement is the most manufactured commodity worldwide and due to the large demand and urbanisation, the industry is extremely resource and carbon intensive. Read more

Microfibres in soils: detection, degradation and impact (OP2233)

Project Description. Microplastic pollution is rightly a global concern. One of the major sources of microplastic pollution has been shown to be clothing and other textile items comprised from synthetic microfibres. Read more

Defining sustainable sand mining rates through the lens of freshwater biodiversity loss (OP2210)

Humans are the biggest movers of sediment on the planet (Mϋller et al., 2013). Our demand for development minerals such as sand, gravel and aggregate has been increasing since the 1970s such that today it is estimated we extract ~50,000 Million Tonnes every year (Bendixen et al., 2021; Torres et al., 2021).
