  System design on co-production of transport fuel and value-added chemicals from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
There is a national and global imperative to reduce reliance upon fossil fuels and, at the same time, to improve the efficiency of natural and renewable resource utilisation.
  Atomic/Molecular insights into the formation of valuable products from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
Lignocellulosic biomass is a green alternative fossil resource to produce fuels (e.g. transport fuel, aviation fuel) and value-added products (e.g.
  Optimising organic feedstock properties for thermal applications
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round
Organic wastes are valuable for energy, nutrients and fuels; however, in many parts of the world, these materials remain an “untapped resource” ― treated as waste.
  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round
Heat is the biggest form of energy use in the UK, accounting for more than 85% of the energy use in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  Carbon leakage in forest ecosystems
  Dr A Ollauri, Dr S B Mickovski, Dr C Thomson
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
SCEBE-19-023. The ability of forest ecosystems to store carbon (C; e.g. CO2) above and belowground makes afforestation one of the leading measures to fight climate change.
  The identification of micro-pollutants in waste water using structural alerts and high resolution liquid chromatography mass spectrometry with non-targeted analysis
  Dr J Roberts, Dr M McNaughtan, Dr J MacLachlan, Dr D Watson
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
SCEBE-19-025. The environmental problems associated with micro-pollutants such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products reaching water courses from waste water effluent are well documented.
  Improved Water Treatment via Densification of Flocs
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
Water, whether it is required for domestic consumption, for industry or for agriculture, is essential for life. Increasingly however many parts of the world are facing issues of water stress and/or water scarcity.
  Control of organic gels for tailored applications
  Dr A Fletcher, Dr P Mulheran
Applications accepted all year round
Organic gels are widely used in industry and on the laboratory scale to produce materials for a variety of applications in energy and nanomaterials.
  Nanoporous materials for removal of pollutants from water
  Dr A Fletcher, Prof V Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round
Emerging pollutants have been linked to adverse effects in humans and wildlife, such species e.g. metaldehyde as a persistent pesticide, as well as pentabromobiphenylether, 4-nonylphenol, C10-C13 chloroalkanes and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, which are listed as priority hazardous substances by the EU (refs.
  Real-time control of solid fuel upgrading through innovative torrefaction process
  Dr J Li, Dr E Ventura-Medina
Applications accepted all year round
Biomass residues and waste, have a great potential to deliver a significant contribution to the primary energy demand, with the aim of meeting low carbon objectives.
