6. Fully Funded PhD Position in BECCS & corrosion

Summary of PhD Program:

The goal of the project is to further the development of Chemical-Looping Combustion (CLC), a concept related to Fluidized-Bed Combustion (FBC), but which involves the use of chemically active bed materials. CLC provides two important advantages over FBC, namely inherent CO2 sequestration and separation of corrosive ash elements and vulnerable heat-transfer surfaces. These advantages make CLC an ideal technology for Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) as well as increase the electricial efficiency when combusting renewable fuels. BECCS involves capturing and storing CO2 absorbed by biomass from the atmosphere during its utilization, and allows for co-generation of negative CO2 emissions, power and heat , which has been identified as a necessary technology for achieving climate policy targets.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in diagnostics and modeling of gas-solids flow

Summary of PhD Program:

Modeling of gas-solids flow is currently limited by: i) insufficient reliability due to inaccurate descriptions of the flow parameters at the micro-scale, and ii) unaffordable computational costs of full-scale simulations. Having this, this project serves the purpose of developing reliable modeling of gas-solids flow by experimentally gaining novel knowledge of the gas-solids flow at the micro-scale and use it to improve the critical modeling expressions for sub-grid momentum transfer with validated descriptions. This is a critical aspect, since micro-scale gas-solids flow phenomena remain largely unknown despite they are recognized to govern the flow picture at the larger scales.

17. Fully Funded PhD Position in satellite measurements of clouds and precipitation

Summary of PhD Program:

A primary research area of the division is to utilise passive microwave satellite data for weather forecasting and climate studies. In particular, we are leading in introducing sub-mm wavelengths (frequencies above 300 GHz) by being involved in the upcoming ICI (Ice Cloud Imager) and AWS (Arctic Weather Satellite) missions. Despite these novel observations, we will still need to face that no single technique provides complete coverage of all parameters of interest. The way forward here is to combine information from different types of sensors. However, making consistent and rigorous simulations of multiple observations is very challenging today, drastically slowing down progress.
