The University of Queensland in Australia is inviting applications for the Future Fuels PhD Scholarship for International Students for the 2020/2021 academic session.
Hydrogen is widely seen as the energy carrier of the future, either by itself or in the form of ammonia and exotic fluids like hydrazine. It is also the critical component in syngas, the feedstock for synthetic fuels like methanol, diesel or jet fuel.
Hydrogen production without CO2 emissions and its large-scale storage is a critical challenge for the production of future fuels in the industrial, power and transport sectors. Conventional approaches to hydrogen production utilize fossil fuel (mainly natural gas) reforming and produce significant CO2 emissions.
