Hydrogen is predicted to be a major energy vector of the future. Major commercial activities in a range of applications is making this future an inevitability. This PhD will place you at the leading edge of hydrogen production processes of significant promise for large scale hydrogen generation.
Current options for hydrogen production also produce greenhouse gases as a byproduct. In this project you will work on chemical looping processes, where such byproducts are inherently separated. Chemical looping processes have seen impressive development across a range of sectors (as well as hydrogen production they are extensively used for carbon capture), and are undoubtedly going to be extensively used in the future energy economy. You will be involved in the synthesis, characterisation and testing of looping materials, with the ultimate goal of efficient hydrogen production to underpin our societal future.
The facilities and opportunities provided to you are unparalleled. Through our home institution, collaborative partners and networks, we have access to the brightest and best people and equipment. Whether your intention is to continue into academia, or to prepare yourself for cutting-edge industrial work, this project will prepare you for a future as a leader in hydrogen production.
Name of supervisor(s)
You should have an upper-second-class Honours degree or higher or international equivalent, in Chemical Engineering, or a related subject.
The award is available to UK/EU applicants only. Depending on how you meet the EPSRC’s eligibility criteria, you may be entitled to a full or a partial award.
