Energy from waste
The following are some of the projects that we can offer:
Energy recovery from waste through advanced gasification technology
Supervisor: Professor Mohamed Pourkashanian, Professor Lin Ma
Gasification is an advanced thermal treatment technology that converts carbon containing materials into syngas for downstream use, e.g. generating energy. Gasification is one of the key technologies available which will help meet these challenges to meet the energy needs while minimizing the impact on the environment. This project instigates an emerging waste recovery and treatment technology using advanced gasification processes that can recover the useful materials in the waste in addition to harvesting the energy. Computational modelling will be used to simulate and analyse the gasification processes including the chemical processes involved. This will provide a better understanding of the gasification and make the technology perform in an economically competitive and environmentally manner.
