Wednesday 21 Sep 22 Apply for this job Apply no later than 21 October 2022 Apply for the job at DTU Chemical Eng. by completing the following form. Apply online We offer you an opportunity to join DTU Chemical Engineering to investigate the use of pyrolysis oil in 2-stroke marine diesel engines, with a focus on modifications required to the liquid fuel and/or to the engines. The project will be conducted in a collaboration with the company MAN Energy Solutions that manufacture maritime diesel engines. You will be based in the CHEC research group at DTU Chemical Engineering in a dynamic international research environment. Responsibilities and qualifications T he aim of the PhD project will be to investigate the implications of the pyrolysis oil chemical composition and properties for use in 2-stroke marine diesel engines. Aspects related to ignition and combustion, engine operation, and emissions will be assessed to identify the fuel requirements and need for upgrading for use in existing engines. The work will involve laboratory experiments at Department of Chemical Engineering, combined with kinetic modelling and process evaluation. More specifically the position will involve the following tasks: Assessment of the characteristics of common pyrolysis oils and of the challenges of their use in 2-stroke marine diesel engines. Flow reactor study of the combustion characteristics of selected pyrolysis oils. Determination of fuel requirements and/or use of dual fuel approaches (pyrolysis oil/diesel) to ensure proper ignition under engine conditions. Evaluation of impact of fuel properties for emissions and deposition propensity. Development of chemical kinetic models to facilitate CFD simulations of the engine application. You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree. Approval and Enrolment The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see DTU's rules for the PhD education .
