Job Description

CO2 Liquefaction

Suitable for BSc or MSc in Chemical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering / Sustainable Energy

Bright has developed technology for liquefaction CO2 from biogas upgrading or carbon capture installations. The first installations are installed and currently in starting-up or running. During this internship you will monitor the installations, collecting and analyze data. The main goal is to identify the CO2 recovery and energy consumption and improve energy efficiency and/or recovery the installation.

Your tasks:

  •  Monitoring and analysis of plant data;
  • Recommendations for improvement;
  • Research options for heat recovery and integration;
  • Setup and execute test plans to confirm hypotheses.

Desulfurisation

Suitable for MSc in Chemical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering / Sustainable Energy

Bright delivers biogas upgrading systems, in these systems methane and carbon dioxide are separated using membrane technology. Thereby, the methane quality is enriched for injection in the natural gas grid. Before the biogas is ready to processed in the membrane, sulphur compounds (H2S) need to be removed. During this internship the aim is to develop a pilot using the basic fundamentals currently being developed for this separation process. Using these principles a design for a pilot scale system should be made, as well as a feasibility study for large scale design fitting withing the technology portfolio of the HoSt group. The development of a cost effective design for standardisation is paramount.

Your tasks:

  • Setup of process flowsheet and PID for the pilot;
  • Preparing mass and energy balances;
  • Design of heat integration system;
  • Design/Engineering of separation train for sulfur;
  • Feasibility study for use within the HoSt group.

Membrane testing

Suitable for BSc or MSc in Chemical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering / Sustainable Energy

Bright delivers biogas upgrading systems, in these systems methane and carbon dioxide are separated using membrane technology. Thereby, the methane quality is enriched for injection in the natural gas grid. In this internship you will experimentally determine the performance of (novel) membranes for application in production of BioLNG. For this application CO2 needs to be removed almost completely, down to 50ppm in the process gas stream.
To this end Bright Renewables has developed an experimental set-up for characterisation of membranes used for deep removal of CO₂. The assignment will consist of installing the membrane setup, and validating the experimental method. Furthermore, you will work on further development/calibration of the models describing membranes under these experimental conditions. The main goal is to demonstrate we can reach CO2 levels below 50ppm, and optimize operation conditions for this deep removal of CO2.

Your tasks:

  • Installing of membrane setup;
  • Planning and performing experimental work on (biogas) test location;
  • Experimental validation of models;
  • Processing and analysis of experimental data;
  • Process design based on experimental findings;
  • Recommendations for process design of the set-up.

Methanol synthesis

Suitable for BSc or MSc in Chemical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering / Sustainable Energy

Bright delivers biogas upgrading systems, in these systems methane and carbon dioxide are separated using membrane technology. Thereby, the methane quality is enriched for injection in the natural gas grid (if required liquefaction is also possible). Furthermore, technology for the capture and liquefaction of CO₂ are also delivered. One of the next developments for Bright is the utilization of the captured CO₂ for production of renewable methanol.
In this internship you will work on the development of the demonstration set-up as well as the development of the future product line of methanol reactors. The aim of the internship is expanding upon the optimal process design and sizing of the methanol systems within the Bright scope. Also work will be performed to incorporate the required lessons to be learned into the demonstration system currently being made.

Your tasks:

  • Research into available process equipment;
  • Detail design of process equipment;
  • PID/PFD development;
  • Technology sizing/compliance to the technology portfolio of the HoSt group;
  • Techno-economic assessment of made designs;
  • Planning of experimental campaign of reaction system.
