Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

With more people requiring energy, effective solutions need to come from a wide range of sources. For the near term various fuels will be the key to energy globally: presently oil and gas with an increasing reliance on hydrogen and biofuels.

The MSc by Research Fuel Technology has a wide range of subject choices including:

  • Catalyst design
  • Process characterisation
  • Refining
  • Process optimisation
  • Pilot scale studies

The Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is a leading centre of excellence for the development of advanced technologies in energy resources.

ESRI's research areas, broadly speaking, fit into one of four categories:

  • Hydrocarbon: Oil and gas production and processing; downstream issues relating to efficient fuel refining; additives and fuel composition/performance chemistry.
  • Hydrogen: technologies for the efficient generation of hydrogen from wasted energy generation; photocatalysis for hydrogen generation; hydrogen as an energy vector.
  • CO2: technologies for the efficient removal of carbon dioxide from fuel feedstocks; use of carbon dioxide as a fuel source.
  • Biofuel: methods for developing the process streams enabling integration of biofuel production with the chemistry industry supply chain.
