    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Scott is a Research Fellow for the EPSRC funded SUPERGEN, based in the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University.

    He joined EBRI as a doctoral student in 2009. His research project was about Ash control methods to limit biomass inorganic content and its effect on fast pyrolysis bio-oil stability. He completed his PhD in 2014. Since 2014 he has been a research fellow focussing on catalytic fast pyrolysis, ash control, bio-oil characterisation and bio-oil stability. 

    Research interests lie in the following areas:

    • Catalytic pyrolysis of biomass
    • Fast pyrolysis bio-oil stability
    • Ash control methods to limit biomass inorganic content
