Assuring the chemical and microbial safety of organic waste spread on land in Ireland – metal(oid)s and nutrients

Background. This project (SAFEWASTE) will help support the use of animal waste, wastewater treatment sludge and other relevant wastes as organic fertilisers in agriculture by ensuring they are free of chemical and biological hazards, thereby protecting food safety and public health. Read more

Installation effect on the noise of small high speed fans

Supervisory Team.   Phillip Joseph and Chaitanya Paruchuri. Project description. At the heart of Dysons’s products, such as vacuum cleaners, hair dryers and hand dryers, is an efficient high-speed fan for providing high flow rates at large pressure. Read more

Aerodynamics and aeroacoustics of multi-rotor propulsion systems

Supervisory Team:  Chaitanya Paruchuri, Phillip Joseph and Bharathram Ganapathisubramani. Project description. The PhD student will address directly the major gap in understanding aimed at enabling the design and development of efficient and quiet future multi-rotor propulsion systems. Read more

Water in the UK: Changing patterns of water use in high-use households

Co-funded by Northumbrian Water Group (NWG), this project supports the improvement of the company’s water efficiency strategy and helps the water industry move beyond conventional retrofit and behavioural interventions towards a sociotechnical regime that’s capable of securing future water supplies.

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. Read more

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
