PhD Studentship: Control and operation of advanced modular chemical looping process

Deadline: No expiration date
The Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of Manchester are offering a PhD Project (UK Students Only).

Chemical looping reforming in packed bed reactors is among the most promising technologies in the area of syngas and hydrogen production. The University of Manchester is currently building a pilot-scale process to operate the gas-solid reaction close to industrial operations. The plant will be fully integrated with sensors, data recording, inline instrumentation that could provide an incredible amount of data to fully demonstrate the feasibility of the technology towards commercial application.

The main objective of this PhD project is to develop a smart platform towards the digitalisation of chemical looping reforming to optimise the performance of the process.
