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 in the development of a next-generation NO x control technology for Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plants. The project will be conducted in a collaboration with the company Babcock & Wilcox Renewables that manufactures grate-fired waste incineration plants. 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 develop a deNO x technology, which is more robust towards the fluctuating environment in a WtE plant. This aim will be met through the use of alternative reducing agents or agent mixtures or through additives capable of shifting the process window to higher or lower temperatures as required. 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 current in-situ deNO x methods and SNCR agents/mixtures, and their applicability to WtE plants. Evaluation of additives capable of either inhibiting or promoting reaction (for temperature window control). Flow reactor experiments and chemical kinetic modeling to screen and evaluate novel deNOx approaches. Evaluation of the NOx control potential of the best candidates in a fluctuating temperature and flue gas composition environment under realistic reaction conditions. 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.
