Energy and Environment Institute Our story Our work Our people Contact us More Our work With a portfolio of active research and a community of leading academics, we lead on a range of interdisciplinary projects tackling some of the biggest global challenges we face as a global society. Featured on-going project Flood Innovation Centre “The world's biggest threat is our region’s biggest opportunity.” - Marketing Humber Centres, groups and clusters Centre Aura CDT The Energy and Environment Institute leads on the Aura Centre for Doctoral Training, offering PhD scholarships in offshore wind energy and the environment. Centre Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies Decarbonisation research into renewable energy, green buildings, sustainable heating & cooling and energy management & efficiency. Cluster Plastics in the Environment Research Cluster From source to sink. Ongoing projects and activities On-going project Teesside, Hull and York - Mobilising Bioeconomy Knowledge Exchange (THYME) We're working on a £5 million project to develop the bioeconomy across Yorkshire and the Humber region and the Tees Valley. On-going project Hedgerows: Mapping the gaps Pilot project within the Energy and Environment Institute to map East Riding hedgerow gaps with a view to expediting tree planting for carbon sequestration On-going project Youth-led adaptation for climate change challenges in Vietnam On-going project Living with water The University is working with Living with Water to research the impacts of the 2007 and 2013 floods, and current levels of awareness of flood alleviation measures being developed by LWW partners. On-going project Understanding the work of Youth Environmental Ambassadors and the impact of Covid-19 On-going project Plastics Collaboratory A multidisciplinary, holistic approach to the plastics problem. On-going project Energy and Environment Institute postgraduate training for a greener future On-going project Ark – National Flood Resilience Centre Ark is a unique integrated multi-agency training, research, innovation and community engagement flood resilience facility. On-going project THYME: Developing a curriculum framework for bioeconomy employability On-going project River of Plastic Investigating the journey of plastics along the Mekong and its ultimate fate in the world’s oceans On-going project Plastic - Defender or Destroyer? Has your perception of plastic changed during the Covid-19 pandemic? On-going project THYME: Improving soil quality to enhance climate change resilience On-going project The Resilience and Sustainability of the Mekong Delta to Changes in Water and Sediment Fluxes (RAMESES) This project explores the evolution of flood risk on the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. On-going project Monterey Canyon Experts from the University of Hull collaborated on an intensive study monitoring high-energy currents along a stretch of the Monterey Canyon in California. On-going project THYME: Testing membranes as a low carbon solution in biofuel production Collaborative research as part of the THYME Project testing membranes as a potential low carbon replacement for distillation in the production of biofuels On-going project Bute Inlet On the Bute Inlet in Canada, we’re part of a larger international effort to monitor turbidity currents in action. On-going project Offshore Wind Library The Offshore Wind Library (OWL) provides invaluable support for the offshore wind sector through easy access to the latest research while enabling the exchange of knowledge through academic and industrial collaboration. On-going project Hydralab+ The University is one of 24 partners in the HYDRALAB network, using experimental models to improve predictions of how our rivers, estuaries and coasts will be affected by environmental change. On-going project Bilateral Microplastic Workshop Completed projects Completed project COHBED COHBED takes advantage of the latest technologies to produce information about the growth, movement and stability of bedforms that consist of natural mixtures of sands and muds. Completed project Columbia TIFZ This project used integrated field measurements and mathematical modelling techniques to achieve a step-change in our understanding of the TIFZ in the Columbia River estuary. Completed project Bedforms in unsteady flows This project combined laboratory experiments at the Total Environment Simulator with repeat detailed field surveys of bathymetry and flow on the Mississippi River. Completed project Paraná-Paraguay A multi-disciplinary, international team working in collaboration with industry and local partners investigated one of the World's largest rivers, the Paraná-Paraguay in Argentina. Completed project STELAR-S2S The STELAR team wished to build new insights into how morphodynamic processes interact with climate to modulate sediment transfer from source to sink.
