Carbonation of waste materials
University of Greenwich – School of Science, Chatham, Kent
This project is concerned with the reaction of mineral systems with CO2 as a means of sequestrating anthropogenic emissions of carbon. In the context of waste technology, the accelerated carbonation of thermal (and other) residues is a viable means to divert hazardous waste from landfill through the production of engineering materials. However the carbonation reaction (at normal temperatures and pressures) is limited by kinetic constraints linked to the diffusion and ionisation of CO2 in aqueous media.
The unique approach adopted by our group involves low water/solid (w/s) systems at STP, and the commercial potential of this approach for the treatment of waste is being realised. However, for the future development and wider application of carbonation in a ‘low’ technology, low cost approach, there is a need to investigate ways of improving the efficiency of the carbonation of waste.
The successful candidate will receive a £13590 per annum bursary plus a contribution of up to £4000 per annum towards the tuition fees during the term of the studentship, subject to performance.
