2. Project description and Aim
Industrial emissions are one of the most important environmental challenges of the last decades. Sweden has the goal of becoming GHG emission free by 2050. Fulfilling this goal requires capturing CO2 emission from all types of industries, and not only the major emitters such as district heating plants. At Ozonetech, we work on solutions for small to medium size production industries, such as biogas plants. However, the technology is relatively young and further strategic R&D is needed prior to a market breakthrough. The project starts with an assessment of different sorbents for CO2 capture in order to (a) analyze the capacity of the sorbents, (b) investigate the regenerative abilities or the possibility of using the consumed sorbent in other applications, and (c) estimate the net cost of each sorbent. Once this step is completed, a theorical model for simulating CO2 capture in fixed bed reactors is developed. The model is numerically solved in MATLAB or Octave. The main goal of the simulations is to estimate the breakthrough time of the fixed bed. The effect of different controlling parameters on the breakthrough time should be investigated. Depending on the candidate profile and project direction, the project may also include experimental tests.
This project would include the following:
• Literature survey on sorbents and modeling methods
• Evaluations of sorbents
• Packed bed model development
• Sensitivity analysis of the process parameters
• Viable market positioning
• Thesis Writing

3. Personal profile
Candidate profile:
• Chemical, Energy or mechanical engineering or equivalent
• Strong knowledge in transport phenomena and chemical reaction engineering
• Prior experience in modelling is an advantage
• Skilled in numerical simulations, for example through courses on applied numerical methods or CFD and applied CFD
• Business-oriented mind

4. Scope
Expected scope: 20 weeks, 30 HP/credits
Expected start: Spring 2020
