About the Project
The PhD study will explore conceptual, theoretical, and experimental approaches in biomass utilisation and thermochemical conversion to develop innovative energy solutions and/or processes as well as a circular economy concept for resource recovery. This relies on integrated energy processes for multi-generation of beneficial outputs, whose end products have environmental value. A parametric techno-economic and environmental analysis will be carried out to assess the feasibility of the technology proposed. Project outcomes are expected to contribute to improving energy security, reducing the dependency on fossil fuels, diversifying fuel supply, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This can have considerable impact on health, well-being, livelihood of people, particularly rural households.
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.
