PhD Student: Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering 992 views

The Department of Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering at Ghent University is inviting applications for a PhD position. This project investigates whether the waste fraction that cannot be recycled yet, can be used for both its energetic and its reductive potential as alternative reductant in a blast furnace. This would substitute for part of the cokes in a blast furnace, hereby decreasing the CO2 emissions. In the project, two routes for the production of alternative reductants will be investigated: the coke making route and the torrefaction route.

About the position:
  • This vacancy aims to select a PhD researcher having an operations engineering, sustainable and innovative natural resource management, materials engineering, chemical engineering, business engineering, chemistry or a similar background.
  • The goal of this PhD project is the investigation of the use of these alternative reductants in a blast furnace via techno-economic analysis, while keeping in mind which material parameters are essential for the steel production and waste handling.
  • The research will be counselled by the research group Sustainable Materials Science at Ghent University.

Requirements:

  • Applicant must hold an M.Sc. degree in Operations Engineering, Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management, Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Business Engineering, Chemistry or another similar degree.
  • Knowledge of Techno-economic assessment is an advantage.
  • A background in thermodynamics and kinetics is also a plus.
  • Applicant must have a strong motivation for conducting scientific research and dealing with complex research questions.
  • Applicant must possess structured and creative problem-solving abilities, strong analytical and technical skills, critical scientific mindset and take responsibility for the development of your work.
  • Applicant must have excellent English communication skills (written and oral). – Knowledge of Dutch is a plus.
