Catalytic reforming of syngas hydrocarbons to maximise hydrogen production


Department of Chemical and Process Engineering

Glasgow United Kingdom Applied Mathematics Chemical Engineering Computational Mathematics Energy Technologies Engineering Mathematics Fluid Mechanics Mechanical Engineering Physical Chemistry Thermodynamics

About the Project

Hydrogen is an energy source of the future. It is imperative to develop competitive hydrogen production technology from renewable sources such as biomass. Biomass can be converted to hydrogen through gasification to produce syngas. However, tar condenses easily at low temperatures leading to blockages in equipment.

This project will develop a novel means to convert tar and other hydrocarbons present in syngas into hydrogen and thus maximise hydrogen production at low cost, which can be subsequently separated from other syngas species. This innovative project is ideally suited to students with the creativity and drive to pursue doctoral studies at a technologically leading university, providing the students to gain expertise in modelling and experimental investigations.

In addition to undertaking cutting edge research, students are also registered for the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Development (PGCert), which is a supplementary qualification that develops a student’s skills, networks and career prospects.

Funding Notes

This PhD project is initially offered on a self-funding basis. It is open to applicants with their own funding, or those applying to funding sources. However, excellent candidates will be eligible to be considered for a University scholarship.

Students applying should have (or expect to achieve) a minimum 2.1 undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering/science discipline, and be highly motivated to undertake multidisciplinary research. International students require IELTS overall 6.5 (all components above 5.5).
