About

Professor Alan Guwy heads up the Sustainable Environment Research Centre (SERC), and is the Director of the Energy and Environment Research Centre (EERI) at the University of South Wales (USW). SERC is a multi-disciplinary team of over 36 researchers investigating renewable hydrogen production, novel biogas and anaerobic digestion systems, hydrogen storage materials, novel fuel cell developments, hydrogen energy systems, water and wastewater treatment and analysis. He is the Operating Agent for the new HIA IEA Task 34 on biohydrogen and the UK representative on the International Water Association’s (IWA) AD Specialist Group. He is a Scientific Advisor for the Hydrogen and Fuel Cells EPSRC SUPERGEN Hub and the Director of the Hydrogen Research Centre based at Baglan Energy Park in South Wales. He leads the “Hydrogen and Fuel Cell” theme within the Low Carbon Research Institute (LCRI) in Wales, and is the principal investigator for a £6.3 million EU funded project “CymruH2Wales” to develop H2 & FC technologies in Wales. He is the lead for the USW in the newly formed NRN for Wales in Low Carbon, Energy and the Environment. He is the chair for “Optimisation of anaerobic digestion processes” theme in the BBSRC NIBB AD Network. His research is focused on renewable generation of hydrogen, the optimization of anaerobic fermentation to produce bioenergy in the form of hydrogen and methane gas, bioelectricity using microbial fuel cells and bio-electrocatalytic systems water and wastewater treatment and analysis of recalcitrant pollutants. He has authored over 90 ISI peer journal articles, and currently has an h-Index of 30. He is a joint author of the highest cited scientific paper in the journal Water Research in the last years and of the highest cited paper in the journal Water Science and Technology over the last 10 years. The SERC team has attracted R&D funding totalling over £20 million including projects funded by EPSRC, EPSRC SUPERGEN’s, NERC, EU Marie Curie, EU FP4, FP6 & FP7, Carbon Trust, TSB and EU-ERDF.
