Providing a sustainable, affordable and secure energy future through the discovery and implementation of new technology is a key challenge for the 21st Century. With more people requiring energy, effective solutions need to come from a wide range of sources. For the near term, various fuels will be the key to energy globally; presently oil and gas with an increasing reliance on hydrogen and biofuels.
The Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is a leading centre of excellence for the development of advanced technologies in energy resources.
The Centre benefits from world-leading expertise in the area of a wide range of energy technologies and fuel technology.
The Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) research areas, broadly speaking, fit into one of three categories:
- Hydrocarbon: Oil and gas production and processing; downstream issues relating to efficient fuel refining; additives and fuel composition/performance chemistry.
- Hydrogen: technologies for the efficient generation of hydrogen from wasted energy generation; photocatalysis for hydrogen generation; hydrogen as an energy vector.
- CO2: technologies for the efficient removal of carbon dioxide from fuel feedstocks; use of carbon dioxide as a fuel source.
- Biofuel: methods for developing the process streams enabling integration of biofuel production with the chemistry industry supply chain.
The MSc by Research Fuel Technology has a wide range of subject choices including:
- Catalyst design
- Process characterisation
- Process optimisation
- Pilot scale studies
