About the Project

Applicants are invited to apply for a fully funded PhD programme to investigate the Development of Novel Textile Filter Media for cathode air filtration to Enable the Optimised Operation of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technologies for Automotive Applications.

Parker Hannifin Manufacturing (UK) Ltd is the industrial partner for the project and would provide access to their state-of-the-art filtration lab facilities, industrial placement and opportunities to work with the leading research scientist working globally on Hydrogen fuel cell technology

The global drive towards reducing carbon print and moving to greener energy resources has led to various governments, particularly UK and European Union, to incentivise Electric vehicles and other means of energy resources including Hydrogen fuel cell and Hydrogen powered Internal Combustion Engines. Hydrogen fuel cell offers a flexible and sustainable alternative to regular combustion engines. However, hydrogen-powered vehicles are also affected by fine dust particles and toxic gases. Filters are needed to clean the air used for the chemical reaction in the fuel cell; moreover, the air needs to have a specific humidity levels to ensure the electrodes in the fuel cell operate at their optimum levels. The proposed research will look into developing novel and effective filtration solutions for Hydrogen fuel Cell powered engines, which will combine chemical and particle filtration in a robust and optimum fashion.


Funding Notes

A highly competitive Studentship consisting of the award fees at the Home rate and an annual maintenance grant of a minimum of £16,263 for 3 years.
