regeneration of alkaline solvent for carbon capture

Type of Project: MSc Thesis / Internship
Starting date: October 2023 to January 2024
Duration: > 6 months
Salary: 200€ / month
Location: Wetsus – European centre of excellence for sustainable water technology (Leeuwarden, Netherlands)

Project description

This internship project will be assisting the 4-year European collaborative project ConcenCUS, funded within the Horizon 2020 Innovation Action framework. The focus of the project will be the electro-regeneration of the alkaline solvent for carbon capture. Such a process operates with a pH swing established by an electrochemical cell, carbon dioxide will be released under low pH, and solvent will regain alkalinity under the high pH zone (Fig. 1). The aim of the project is to optimize the electrochemical system from the perspective of energy consumption and performance stability, assisting the further scaling-up process. Your specific enrollment will be performing experiments to understand the overpotential and building a pH profile across the electrochemical cell with the assistance of our developing model.
