We, the Thermal Engineering Laboratory (TE), have an open postdoctoral position available in the research domain of CO2 capture from ambient air. The job includes the design, development, and testing of a novel, solid sorbent- based direct air capture reactor which is suitable for a medium-scale DAC system relevant to the Coca Cola European Partners (CCEP) production process. It captures CO2 from the ambient air and releases it as a CO2-rich gas for applications such as carbonated soft drinks.
Project aim and description:
You will perform the development, modeling, and experimental testing of a novel system for CO2 capture from ambient air for the CCEP production processes. Your research will include both the development and testing of a CO2 sorbent material and the development of a CO2 capture reactor at the lab scale. Furthermore, you will develop the complete DAC system including efficient heat management, and perform a techno-economic analysis. You will also be responsible for reporting and interaction with the CCEP team as well.
Your first responsibility is to carry out the research, but you are also encouraged to acquire experience in supervising MSc students.Your profile
