Studying PhD of Ceramic nanofiltration membranes: Creating a resilient future for drinking water supply at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom:
Polymer nanofiltration membranes are used in the production of drinking water due to their selectivity for organic color, which results in excellent drinking water quality. However, there are disadvantages such as low membrane permeability, surface fouling, mechanical breakage, and limitations in cleaning methods, which make this solution expensive.
Increasingly, the need for nanofiltration in drinking water production has increased because we are facing issues such as rising organic levels in raw water due to population growth and climate change. The aim of this course is to develop ceramic nanofiltration membranes instead of polymer membranes because they are mechanically more resistant to fouling and also easier to clean. This course seeks to revolutionize drinking water treatment by accelerating the adoption of ceramic nanofiltration to remove water color.
During the course, the first step that students take is to evaluate the selectivity mechanism of nanofiltration by linking water properties to membrane properties, which determines the separation efficiency, the second step is to compare and evaluate the water permeability of ceramic membranes to polymer membranes, and the last step is to develop a business model in order to make an investment. Students will also have the opportunity to act as leaders in driving an innovative technology into industry, as well as to create real industrial and environmental benefits through research.
The benefits of this course include collaborating with industry partners, delivering scientific presentations at national and international conferences, teaching laboratory skills, and acquiring analytical and communication skills.
Students will enjoy a professional, focused, and dynamic environment and become part of the Cranfield Doctoral Network. The network is made up of research staff and students and provides a platform for researchers to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment and share their ideas. The purpose of forming the network is to encourage a dynamic and effective research culture based on knowledge and diversity of activities. The transferable skills curriculum, along with a dedicated program of events and seminars, provides students with the opportunity to network and gain social opportunities.
Admission requirements of doctoral degree in Ceramic nanofiltration membranes: Creating a resilient future for drinking water supply:
Applicants need a first or second class UK honours degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science or other related field.
The course provides a scholarship of up to £19,000/ year plus fees for four years (sponsored by EPSRC, Anglian Water, Scottish Water and Welsh Water). UK and international students can benefit from this scholarship, but only 30% of international students are supported due to funding rules.
