Membrane based technology to intensify the sustainable production of chemicals

  Research Group: Catalysis and Porous Materials
Project Description. In the context of net-zero and the current scenario of depleting fossil resources, glycerol from biodiesel is a widely generated by-product. Read more

Integral valorisation of waste biomass to obtain bioactive compounds and furans

  Research Group: Catalysis and Porous Materials
The project. The biorefinery concept has been gaining momentum in the last years as many countries have adopted policies and national strategies to steer towards a biobased economy. Read more

Sustainability assessment of biobased surfactants by fermentation and biomass transformation

  Research Group: Sustainable Industrial Engineering
This PhD project in collaboration with Holiferm Limited will assess the environmental impacts and techno-economic aspects of different types of biosurfactants, produced via a variety of pathways such as fermentation and biomass transformation, and compare these to traditional chemical surfactants in a consistent way – allowing for fair and even evaluation of the environmental profiles/benefits.

Creating novel sophorolipid structures via biological transformation

  Research Group: Biochemical and Bioprocess Engineering
This collaborative PhD project with Holiferm Limited will investigate the post fermentation transformation of the sophorolipid biosurfactant molecule, generating novel structures with interesting and useful properties. Read more

Optical sensing of formaldehyde in indoor environments PhD

Use your skills to improve everyday human health. We spend a large proportion of our time indoors – at work, at home and while travelling, yet pay little attention to the quality of the air we breathe. Read more

Development of a mobile urban cement plant

One issue for reusing construction/demolition waste (CDW) in cement clinker manufacture is establishing the supply chains and the associated transportation costs from urban areas to cement plants. Read more

Development of Understanding of the effects of Laser Cladding on Novel Iron- Based Hardfacing Materials

Nuclear power plants are complex engineering structures with a multitude of different components required to make them operate. One area that rarely hits the headlines, but it fundamental to the operation of the plant, is tribological components such as valves and pumps. Read more
