Arran Plant

PhD student

Research Overview

Arran Plant is currently studying for his PhD at Lancaster University as sponsored by the EPSRC. His research interests cover topics in radiation chemistry, catalysis and electrochemistry. His work focuses on the valorization of glycerol using waste neutron and gamma ionization energy from nuclear reactors, introducing the concept of a nuclear-biorefinery. His work also involves the development of a high-pressure, electrolytic cell to reduce CO2 using non-aqueous, ionic liquid electrolytes and copper-based working electrodes.
