The PhD student will undertake experimental investigations on the high-temperature reduction of NZ ironsand fines under reducing gas atmospheres, methane and hydrogen. The primary aim is to characterise the reduction kinetics of this process, and define key process parameters relating to the production of Direct-reduced iron from NZ ironsand using natural-gas. A secondary aim will look at the development of a novel DRI process for the high-throughput reduction of gas-entrained titanomagnetite fines.
The bursary shall be open to candidates enrolled full-time for a degree in horticulture at Massey University. Applicants must show in their application that they are interested in pursuing a career in growing ornamental plants, either in the nursery industry, cut-flower production or management of parks.
The main purpose of the Scholarships is to fund postgraduate students who are admitted to the PhD programme in the University of Auckland Business School with the intention of undertaking research on a topic which has the potential to impact on New Zealand business and/or business development in a globalising world.
