Buildings, Waste Networks, and the Circular Economy (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/GES/FORMAN)

Excessive waste is one of the key challenges of the Anthropocene and is inextricably linked to contemporary forms of Capitalism. To Capitalist economies, waste features as both anathema and existential requirement. Read more

Sustainable urban horticulture: managing soils for nutritional crops

Our research has demonstrated that there is potentially enough land in UK urban areas for urban horticulture to make an important contribution to UK fruit and vegetable production1. Read more

Geological Fate and Impact of Isosaccharinic acid (Geo-FISA)

About the Project.  The nuclear fuel cycle has generated higher-level radioactive wastes that will be disposed of in a deep geological facility (GDF) that will provide multiple barriers to the migration of radionuclides to the surface over prolonged timescales (tens of thousands of years).

Optimising the energy and lighting spectra for sustainable systems – towards the next generation of vertical farms

This 12 month Master's by Research project in collaboration with iGrowing Ltd aims to reduce energy consumption of vertical farms whilst delivering optimal light environment for plant growth #plantscience #biology #ecology. Read more

Memory in vegetation response to environmental fluctuations (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/GES/LIU)

Plants live in and respond to fluctuating environments around them. Importantly, many plant responses are not only driven by current environmental conditions, but show “memory” to conditions in the past. Read more

Enhancing Urban Flood Resilience with Innovative Digital Design Technologies (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/MCE/FENG)

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risks of urban flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. Due to the extreme environmental conditions, unprecedented downpours across the country in recent years further increases the flooding events on urban road network (URN). Read more
