This research area covers the thermochemical conversion of biomass to energy vectors – for example, heat, electricity and liquid fuels.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) interests are focused on supporting research projects that will deliver greenhouse gas emission savings through the biologic production of sustainable, advanced biofuels and other low carbon fuels.
This research area focuses on understanding information processing in biological systems.
The application of engineering methods to create environments and or materials that promote cell or tissue growth and function, in vitro and in vivo.
Biophysics combines approaches from physics with biological questions and hypotheses. Soft matter physics investigates soft condensed matter systems.
This programme holds a major role in supporting the development of new biological processes, strains of organisms and feedstocks. These can be used to support:
Accelerate the green economy by supporting research and innovation that unlock solutions essential to achieving net zero in the UK by 2050.
Strengthen security and resilience, from individual to national level, across a range of social and economic areas at the heart of daily life.
Quantitative engineering research into the design and operation of buildings and the construction processes involved.
This research area covers the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) produced, for example, by power stations and energy-intensive industry and its secure long-term storage.
