Research Group: Bioenergy and Organic Resources

Currently Active: 

The Group is internationally recognised for its work on anaerobic digestion, both as a means of stabilising wastes and for the production of renewable energy from agricultural crops and residues.

There are around 30 researchers in the group from 14 countries who are involved in research on:

  • Biomass energy
  • Anaerobic digestion
  • Algal Biofuels
  • Nutrient management
  • Energy footprint modelling
  • Waste water treatment
  • Waste management
  • Sustainable agriculture
