A 4-year PhD studentship is available for UK or international applicants: “Meeting future net-zero carbon energy needs: Improved borehole sealing using compacted bentonite and silica grout“. This project will investigate new technologies for borehole sealing to prevent the upward leakage of fluids and gases that are stored at-depth in the ground. Reliable borehole sealing is vital for global development of an energy industry that can meet net zero carbon by 2050 (2045 in Scotland).
