Experienced Combustion Engineer on Metal Fuels Conversion Technology

Updated: 4 months ago
Deadline: 31 Jan 2022

The Power & Flow section within Mechanical Engineering focuses on clean and efficient combustion and process technology, to cater for fast-growing energy demands. We are also seeing increased use of biofuels, and eventually the emergence of fuels derived from sustainable sources, such as solar and metal fuels. Optimizing combustion and process devices, in combination with different fuel formulations to minimize undesired emissions and maximize thermal efficiency, is essential to supporting both of these developments.  

The metal combustion research is concerned with a novel type of fuels: metal powders that have a tremendously high energy density and can act as a major CO2-free energy carrier for the long term. Within the group we develop the combustion technology of metal powder, solid handling including separation and regeneration through chemical reduction using renewable hydrogen. The group has a unique research infrastructure, both from an experimental and computational perspective. The larger-scale MP100/MP200 systems are placed at the Metalot Future Energy Lab in Budel (25 km from Eindhoven), were most of the work will be done, together with the already existing staf of TU/e and Metalot.
