Project Description

We are seeking students (MASc or PhD) for a field and laboratory study of methane oxidation systems in landfills. It is proposed to design and construct novel methane oxidation systems for the reduction of residual methane emissions caused from degradation of waste in landfills. The project will include the design, material analysis, installation, monitoring, and the data collection and analysis of engineered biosystems for methane reduction. We are seeking applicants who are passionate about developing sustainable solutions for complex problems.

Excellent academic record
Background in civil or environmental engineering, geology, or a related field with  background in soil science.
Basic French language competence
