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.

Energy Safety Research Institute (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.

How you're supervised on the Fuel Technology research programme

Your supervisor will:

  • Help you develop your research plan in the early stages of your MSc
  • Advise on research aims and objectives and suggest relevant training or skills courses
  • Provide direction in terms of relevant literature and sources
  • Give guidance on gathering, recording and analysing data
  • Supervise your written work, providing constructive criticism and ensuring you keep to deadlines
  • Support and advise you when it comes to presenting papers at conferences, publishing your work and attending your viva (the final oral examination of your thesis)

Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI)

Building the bridge to a sustainable, affordable and secure energy future

Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is positioned to achieve this aim through the discovery and implementation of new technology for a sustainable, affordable, and secure energy future. The term safety is meant in the broad context of security of supply, long-term sustainability and operational safety.

Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is housed on Swansea University’s new world class Bay Campus. Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) provides an exceptional environment for delivering cutting edge research across energy and energy safety related disciplines with a focus on the following areas:

  • Inter-conversion of waste energy and resources – the conversion of excess and wasted energy via a range of energy vectors transformations (heat-to-electricity and electricity-to-hydrogen) providing enhancing flexibility of demand and supply.
  • Green hydrocarbon - reducing the environmental impact of hydrocarbon energy sources through enhanced production, reduced resource usage, and ensuring low environmental impact of production.
  • Carbon dioxide – defining solutions to the efficient separation, the conversion to useful feedstock, and the safe long-term sequestration of CO2.
  • The next generation of energy distribution – creating an internet of energy to allow for local generation and global sharing that enables everyone to have the potential to be a player in a one world energy scheme. 

Research areas

Research within Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) is directed to four challenge areas which are listed below:
