PhD Project // Sustainability Issues in the Food-Energy-Water Nexus

PhD research opportunity at the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science at the University of Manchester. The project will use life cycle thinking to assess the sustainability of different food production options with the aim of minimising energy and water use as well as other environmental impacts. This will be carried out through whole system modelling and use of tools such as life cycle assessment and life cycle costing. As a result, recommendations and guidance will be provided...
