Project Description

Project Description:

The continuing use of fossil fuels and the related increase in greenhouse gas emissions, and finite reserves of fossil fuels has intensified the search for alternative energy sources and carbon sinks to help drive net carbon footprint down. Research into renewable forms of energy has made way for development and adoption of new technologies for the production of transport biofuels, primarily from renewable plant biomass. In addition, the use of Nature as a Carbon sink has gained scientific rigor over the past few years. This project will investigate different factors that affect the microbial biocatalysis implementation and scale up of biofuels and chemicals from plant biomass and the use of ecosystems as carbon sinks.

Funding Notes

The University of Exeter’s College of Life and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with Shell Technology Center Houston, is inviting applications for a fully-funded, full time MSc by Research studentship to commence in August 2020. For eligible students the studentship will cover UK/EU tuition fees for 12 months and will receive a stipend from Shell for 12 months. The successful student will be registered in Biosciences in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences at the Streatham Campus in Exeter.
