Decarbonising concrete through innovations in wastes utilisation and CO2 storage

The project tackles experimental and theoretical challenges to realise the next generation concrete via innovative use of wastes and biochar as cementing materials to enable performance augmentation and carbon capture and storage. Read more

Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows

Supervisory Team.   Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. Join our world-leading experimental fluid mechanics research group with this PhD studentship in the field of Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows. Read more

Effects of Aquatic Vegetation on the Transport of Plastics in Rivers

Plastic contamination is an escalating environmental problem. Of particular significance are those pieces that are smaller than 5 mm in size, more commonly referred to as microplastics. Read more

Transforming pipedreams into pipe-bots: intelligent self-powered sensors for wastewater systems and river protection

Project details. The 2050 wastewater destination for the UK water industry is an environmentally sustainable service that works as one end-to-end system, from customer drain to the river, collecting and treating wastewater within the system with zero spills to the environment. Read more

SCENARIO: Impacts of microplastics on bioavailability of heavy metals in soil (SC2023_26)

Microplastic pollution is a global problem. Although most research on microplastics focuses on their importance as pollutants in the marine environment, it has been estimated that the amount found in soils is actually 4 to 23 higher the oceans. Read more

SCENARIO: Engineered Anammox Biofilms for Low-Energy Wastewater Remediation and Environmental Protection (SC2023_11)

Nitrogen, in the forms of ammonium and nitrates ions, is a serious problem in the UK and elsewhere in water being discharged into the environment because it can harm aquatic ecology and detrimentally affect human health. Read more

SCENARIO: Plastics in karst groundwater systems (SC2023_03)

This project is focussed on the fate and impact of plastic pollution in karst groundwater systems. Plastic contamination is pervasive and a serious global issue, contaminating even remote locations such as deep underground water stores. Read more
