Module overview

Reactors have applications in many low carbon and sustainable technologies including energy conversion (fuel cells, metal-air batteries, fuel production, electrolysers and flow batteries), catalysis (chemical and electrochemical synthesis), carbon capture/sequestration/conversion and fermentation based chemical production.

This module provides an introduction to the chemical, biochemical and mathematical principles underpinning reactor design and operation. Students will develop a working knowledge of reactors through carbon capture, catalysis and energy conversion case studies.
