PhD Scholarship in Plastic Pyrolysis and Product Characterization

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in combustion. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before June 06, 2019.

Apply no later than 6 June 2019

Apply for the job at DTU Chemical Eng. by completing the following form. The CHEC Research Centre at the Chemical Engineering Department invites applications for a PhD position with a starting date of 1 August 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The PhD project will be carried out at the Biomass Gasification Group (BGG) within the CHEC Research Centre.

At the CHEC Research Centre, we focus on chemical engineering principles applied in combustion, harmful emission control, gasification, catalysis, continuous production of pharmaceuticals and advanced measuring technology. At BGG/CHEC we have large experience with pyrolysis processes and product characterization.

Recycling of plastic waste is gaining more attention and it presents an alternative to combustion or disposal of plastic waste. Some types of plastics, such as PMMA and PEX are not applicable for direct recycling and often it is impossible to separate different plastic types from other waste fractions. In such cases pyrolysis may be an attractive method to recycle plastic waste by converting it to chemicals and fuels.

You will be engaged in a PhD project that will focus on the opportunities to use pyrolysis as a method to convert plastic rich wastes into valuable products.
Deadline: June 06, 2019
