KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The research engineer will contribute to the project funded by the Swedish Energy Agency and f3 – Swedish Knowledge Centre for Renewable Transportation Fuels. The project will present studies on four different routes to produce hydrogen for the hydrodeoxygenation of bio-oil from pyrolysis. This hydro-deoxygenated biooil will then be used to produce transportation fuels. More details of the project can be found at https://f3centre.se/sv/forskningsprojekt/processer-for-produktion-av-drivmedel-via-deoxygenerad-bioolja/
The main tasks of the research engineer are 1) literature review of processes for biomass to transportation fuels 2) process modelling and simulation of the identified routes for hydrogen generation using Aspen Plus/Aspen Hysys/MATLAB 3) assisting project partners in techno-economic evaluation 4) report the results in technical reports and journal articles. The position is for one year and the tasks should be completed within the stipulated time. The research engineer will be employed at the Department of Chemical Engineering and will be supported by Shareq Mohd Nazir (Assistant Professor) and Klas Engvall (Professor) in the research activities.
