Graduate Studentships

The Environmental Services Association Education Trust have helped support two PhD students at Trinity Hall, in conjunction with the Department of Biochemistry.  Firstly Robert Pott (2009) researched the production of hydrogen from the waste products of biodiesel manufacture by a bacterium, Following this, John Hervey (2014) determined the ability of the bacterium to grow on other waste streams, and generate other resources, which could potentially be used for power generation.

“The ESA-ET funding supports research into industrial waste management and global sustainability technologies such as bioenergy. It allows early stage researchers such as myself, to study and contribute to this exciting new field.”
