SERC has been successful in securing project funding from a variety of funding bodies such as ERDF, H2020 and UK research councils, in fields related to:
Biological Fuel Cells and Microbial Electrolysis
Biohydrogen and Biomethane Production
Hydrogen Energy Storage and Hydrogen Systems
Hydrogen Vehicles and Refuelling Infrastructure
Hydrogen Storage and Materials Science
Modelling and Control
We also have many KESS2 projects in collaboration with companies such as TATA Steel, Welsh Water and Wales and West Utilities.
The Reduced Industrial Carbon Emissions (RICE) initiative is a £9.2m EU-backed scheme to test and drive forward next generation technologies to help reduce carbon emissions from Welsh industry.
FLEXIS aims to de-risk decarbonisation by enabling low carbon transport, integrating renewables into the grid and developing reliable means of carbon capture and storage. Its unique approach models energy flows and uses social science expertise to understand public perception of new energy technologies.
The aim of this project is to further the understanding of microbial bio-electrochemical systems (BES) to facilitate their implementation in a range of industries.
The aim of this project is to develop a breakthrough technology based upon integrated low cost bio-electrochemical processes to convert CO2 into liquid fuels for transportation, energy storage, heating and other applications.
Smart Circle is a £1 million collaborative industrial research project to explore how innovative bioprocesses can be used to improve the overall efficiency of a range of industrial operations.
This project aims to further develop the USW AERIOGEN process. The project will move a novel biomethanation sub-system capable of converting grid relevant amounts of renewable electricity to carboxylic acids and methane for energy storage from proof of concept to verified prototype.
The PRO-BES project (Pioneering Real-time Observations with BioElectrochemical Systems) will undertake simultaneous field trials of real-time water quality biosensors in wastewater treatment works spread across the UK.
