About the Project
This PhD project will look closer at these "waste to food" systems, and at the synergies that exist between the waste degradation and food production parts of the system. Activities will include the review of past attempts (e.g. the biological closed-loop for life support in space missions), the modelling of energy, water and nutrients flows and transformations in the different parts of the system, a model-based design and techno-economic evaluation of the system in different scenarios. Experimental tests may be conducted in laboratory environments, especially to evaluate the digestate-hydroponics interactions. The Energy 2050 group is currently collaborating with a successful micro-AD project in urban settings, and this will allow the student to be involved in a real case scenario.
This project is available only for Self funded students.
