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.
This research area focuses on the development of new catalysis concepts and catalytic processes, preparation of new or improved catalysts and studies to understand catalytic mechanisms.
Within the national laboratories, the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) undertakes strategic research to prepare for the future instrumentation needs of STFC facilities and programmes.
This programme aims to develop the knowledge needed to understand how changes in the physical environment will affect the large-scale ecosystem structure and biogeochemical functioning of the Arctic Ocean. It aims to identify potential major impacts and provide projections for the future.
This UK-US programme aims to aid long-term climate prediction by improving understanding of the Subpolar North Atlantic. It will extend an international observation project in the area by a decade and use ocean-climate models to increase understanding of subpolar variability and its impacts.
This programme aims to stimulate new collaborations across disciplines to help realise the full potential of the UK’s contribution to environmental challenges such as energy decarbonisation, creating a circular economy, reversing biodiversity decline, sustainable supply chains and cleaner air.
This research area focuses on the development of novel chemical tools and technologies for the understanding of biology and the synthesis of biological and biologically active molecules.
This research area focuses on the study of rates and mechanisms of chemical reactions in gas and solution phase, and at surfaces.
The EPSRC circular economy theme aims to support and drive research and innovation relevant to the transition to a circular economy across the council’s remit.
