Novel reactor designs for solar fuels

This project is offered as part of our EPSRC funded programme “Solar fuels via engineering innovation” ( This research project focuses on developing novel photoreactors that can achieve efficient hydrocarbon conversion and separation from CO2 for solar fuel production. This will be achieved via an integrated approach between chemical engineering and chemistry to intensify the process of CO2 photoreduction through reactor innovation, and thus, provide alternative future energy options.
