Award Summary

100% fees (Home & international), a minimum tax-free annual living allowance of £18,622 (2023/24 UKRI rate), and a research training support grant of £20,000.

Overview

This project between Newcastle University and Durham Filtration offers a unique PhD research opportunity to advance pulse-jet cleaning systems for flue gas treatment emissions control in waste-to-energy and biomass combustion plants.

This project will explore Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methodologies for optimising filter cleaning processes, with the goal of enhancing filtration efficiency, reducing emissions, and improving the sustainability of energy production. The results will feed directly into real-world applications by leveraging tools such as generative design, CAD/CAM and 3D printing.

The successful applicant will be based at Newcastle University’s School of Engineering, benefiting from comprehensive academic guidance, access to cutting-edge facilities, whilst also working closely with Durham Filtration’s industry professionals at their Jarrow headquarters, with opportunities for field work on energy facilities around the UK.

The research will contribute to the development of more effective and environmentally friendly waste management solutions, aligning with both partners’ commitment to tackling climate change and advancing sustainable technologies.

This project offers the chance to engage in high-impact research that bridges the gap between academia and industry, preparing the candidate for a successful career in engineering. You will be co-supervised by Newcastle and Industrial supervisors to guarantee industrial relevance and impact.

You will also be taught a range of complementary skills like life-cycle analysis, techno-economic analysis, digital and business skills, ethics etc. and undertake short courses in core subjects like process intensification and green chemistry.
