Production of biofuels and bio-chemicals from solid waste
Density Functional Theory (DFT) based calculations will be carried out using ARCHIE-WeSt in this project to explore the mechanism and kinetics of the pathways of converting solid waste into fuels and value added bio-products. Through bridging the research gap between macroscopic system design and fundamental understanding, this project will investigate the mechanism insights of waste-to-fuel and waste-to-materials and provide scientific-sound and high-efficient solutions to address the societal demands for ‘green energy’ and sustainability. Part of this project is conducted by collaborating with the Queen’s University Belfast (to carry out the experimental analysis).
For more information about the project contact Dr Xiaolei Zhang (Xiaolei.email@example.com), a chancellor’s fellow, senior lecturer at the Departmental of Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Strathclyde.
