regeneration of alkaline absorbents for co2 capture

Start: February / March 1st, 2023.
Duration: 3 – 6 months.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges in our society. Novel, cost- effective technological solutions are urgently needed to create carbon-neutral capture technology that can be powered by renewable electricity.

This project will optimize an electrochemical cell to regenerate alkaline absorbents for CO capture on the laboratory scale. The challenges are to determine optimum cell configuration and operating conditions, achieve high current efficiency, low energy  consumption and maximize CO2 uptake and alkaline solvent regeneration.

You will learn how to develop a research project independently and improve your critical thinking.

–     Electrochemical unit assembly.
–     Electrochemical experiments.
–     Solution composition analysis.
–     Data analysis.

Your benefits:
–     Possible allowance of €200,- to €400,- a month.
–     International work environment.
–     Hands-on research experience.
–     Contribution to the field of CO2 capture technology.
–     Participating in ConsenCUS, a large EU project in collaboration with industry and academia.

–     Graduate (MSc) student.
–     Chemical/Environmental engineering background.
–     Allowed to relocate to Leeuwarden.
–     Preferred skills: Electrochemistry / Experimental experience.
–     Responsible, organized, rigorous, and proactive.
