Sustainable Chemical Engineering

The course gives scientists and engineers with an understanding of sustainable engineering practices the opportunity to work with researchers in the field of new energy technologies. This includes areas such as fuel cells and gasification, process intensification and new advanced materials. In addition, students benefit from the use of industrial case studies and visiting speakers. Students have a unique opportunity to complete a three month work placement with a local company or research organisation. Projects vary from examining the sustainability of existing or new processes, to environmental assessment and energy efficiency, and examination of Carbon Reduction Potential versus the Potential Risk.
