Research and development of Demand-side flexibility

The increase of new kind of loads (electric vehicles, battery storage) and the increase of overall electrical energy consumption with higher peak load has to be covered by new flexible operation functions. Any new and more flexible operation including a higher degree in automation will lead to opportunities in operating power systems more efficient. The evolution of the distribution networks through increased electrification and new load and generation technologies and patterns, calls for an increased overall need for flexibility in the operation and planning of distribution networks. In addition to technological solutions, there is also a clear need for new ways of thinking regarding organizing and regulating the DSO business, together with needs for involving the grid consumers/prosumers.

Resources for circular economy - understanding vanadium enrichment and carriers in metalliferous black shales

The PhD project will be carried out under a research grant from the Estonian national research program for the valorization of resources, starting in 2020. Vanadium is regarded as a critical battery metal for a low-carbon circular economy. Polymetallic black shales are a potential low-grade high-tonnage future source for vanadium but remain largely unexploited today due to the geochemical complexity of fine-grained organic-rich deposits. The complexity lies in the heterogeneous and disseminated nature of mineralization in such ores and in the shortcomings related to an understanding of metal trapping pathways and interactions between different organic and inorganic compounds. The proposed PhD project will focus on gaining more thorough insights into vanadium distribution across Cambrian to Lower Ordovician metalliferous black shales from the Baltic Paleobasin. The project's goal is to characterize the forms and ways of vanadium enrichment, trapping, and retention by mineral and/or organic matter. The research outcomes of the project will form the basis for further geochemical modeling of the considered system, help to advance resource models of polymetallic black shales, and tailor more efficient recovery technologies for such resources. The project will be based on combined geochemical and mineralogical research, as well as leaching and demineralization experiments, and involves both fieldwork and laboratory studies in Estonia as well as abroad.

Cell factory design for the valorisation of local substrates into food supplements

The transition towards a bioeconomy requires novel processes that use sustainable substrates, have improved life cycle assessments, and, hence, require less energy to produce. Oleochemicals are a wide range of molecules that can be used as biofuels, cosmetics, plastics, surface coatings, but also as food and feed supplements. Microbial lipids (ML) are one high-potential feedstock for the production of these oleochemicals. Production of MLs does not require land, compete with arable land, and is not affected by weather. Non-conventional yeast Rhodotorula toruloides has recently been defined as a promising workhorse for biotechnological applications. This yeast grows on various substrates, including lignocellulosic hydrolysates and food waste, accumulates over 70% of its biomass as lipids (g/gdw), and grows to high cell densities. R. toruloides is also a natural producer of high-value compounds, such as carotenoids and enzymes. In the current project, novel synthetic biology tools for R. toruloides will be utilized and further developed to improve the uptake of hemicellulose hydrolysates and convert them into value-added food supplements like specialty lipids and antioxidants.

Synthesis of thermoplastic cellulose derivatives in environment of ionic liquids

Sustainable thermoplastic polymers are developed and investigated to partly or fully replace non-renewable-resources-based materials for melt processing technologies. Cellulose appears to be a nearly unlimited renewable resource for polymeric materials. Discovery of dissolution processes of cellulose in ionic liquids opens several new routes for functionalization. Thermoplastic cellulose derivatives can be prepared without use of plasticizers, by attaching long-chain ester branches to the macromolecule of cellulose. The research challenge is to find chemically stabile, efficient and recyclable solvent(co-solvent) systems and functionalization routes, which have also potential for industrial upscaling. Also, the functionalization route should provide control over degree of substitution and mixed branching if necessary.

Technological solutions for recycling various Li-ion battery components

The main objective of this Ph.D. project is to develop new technological pathways for recycling spent Li-ion batteries (SLIBs). As LIBs production keeps increasing, the amount of SLIBs is also growing rapidly. SLIBs recycling has environmental and economic benefits as they contain various valuable metals (Li, Co, Ni, Mn etc.) and graphite, which is critical strategic mineral. However, to take the full advantage of the recycling potential, there is a great need for finding new recycling strategy. In this project various recycling possibilities will be studied. The final goal is to develop cost-effective recycling methods for SLIBs and propose various new applications for the recycled materials/components.

A Smart Computational Tool for Hydrodynamic Design of High Speed Craft

Artificial Intelligence is one of the most enabling technologies of digital transformation in the industry. The methods and processes that are carried out in Marine Technology cannot be left out of intelligent machine leaning. There are many aspects in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be applied in ship design because of its direct impact on generating added value, saving time, decreasing the costs and obtaining a more competitive product. The first stage of the lifecycle of high-speed craft (HSC) is designing and the main design aspect of such craft is directly related to their hydrodynamics behavior including resistance, seakeeping and maneuvering motions. Therefore, the current thesis aims to develop a computational tool based on the intelligent machine learning that is able to predict the hydrodynamic performance (resistance, seakeeping and maneuvering) of a particular kind of high-speed craft. The required dataset for creating the Smart Computational Tool (SCT) should be developed based on the validated mathematical models as well as existing experimental data. Moreover, Genetic Algorithm is another methodology that should be considered in SCT to enable the user to find the optimized solution by considering various constraints and objectives including fuel efficiency. SCT has to be developed in an open source framework in which everyone can extend its functions and capabilities.
