About the position

The announced PhD scholarship is a part of the KSP project CCShip established and lead by SINTEF Energy Research as a spin-in project of the FME center NCCS. The project is co-financed by the Norwegian Research Council under the MAROFF program (RCN project number 320260).

The main objectives of the CCShip project are: 1) developing cost-effective and retrofittable solutions for Carbon Capture and Storage from ships and 2) understanding under which conditions would CCS be the most attractive option to reduce CO2 emissions from ships compared to alternative technologies (for example, use of zero-carbon fuels). In particular, the project will design, assess, and compare the performances of mature solvent-based technologies with the potential of novel CO2 capture technologies over several case studies.

The PhD work will be particularly focused on design and analysis of solvent based post-combustion CO2 capture from ship engine exhaust gas. The work will be carried out in close collaboration with researchers from SINTEF Energy Research, SINTEF Ocean, and industrial project partners.

The PhD candidate will report to Professor Jana P. Jakobsen and be co-supervised by Dr Rahul Anantharaman at SINTEF Energy Research.
