Careers at Trinity Green Energies

If work is really about making a difference, you’ll love working with us. Discover career opportunities at Trinity Green Energies (TGE).

What we do

TGE specialises in the capture, storage and utilisation of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. At TGE, we aim to be the leading inventor and integrator of sustainable and affordable technologies for the capture and utilisation of carbon dioxide using renewable energy. Starting off as a spin out company from Trinity College in Dublin (TCD), using Carbon Capture technology (CCT) solutions developed in TCD and University College Dublin, we focus on providing innovative solutions to the challenge of Climate Change.

Following further technological development at our R&D site in Waterford, a prototype carbon capture unit is in production, and it is now time to scale up the technology and bring it to market. To help bring our CCT to market, we are looking for a Commercial Lead, Chemical Engineer and Mechanical Engineer to join our team in Waterford, Ireland. Working with our team, these roles will support the delivery of our medium-to-long term annual targets of direct atmospheric capture of CO2 at Mtonne to Gtonne levels.

TGE plan to, within 10 years, deploy 25,000 TGE System units in Ireland and capture 10m tonne per annum of CO2.  In parallel, we will license our technology to partners to replicate this in other countries with a worldwide target of capturing 100 million tonnes of CO2 per annum and growing this over the following decade to 1 billion tonnes per annum.

Chemical Engineer

Working closely with our Chief Technical Officer and Engineering team, you will take responsibility for:

  • Process design and oversight of the construction of the thermal / vacuum swing adsorber requirements for the modular TGE process
  • Developing and optimising the carbon capture process using TGE’s demonstrator unit
  • Advising on recommended commissioning and operating parameters as well as engagement with stakeholders including potential Customers and Suppliers

What we need from you:

  • Practical experience in the integration of component parts of gas adsorption systems as they might relate to the capture of CO2
  • Gas adsorption process development and optimisation experience
  • Motivation and ability to solve challenging design problems under tight time constraints
  • Flexibility and adaptability to thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment

This position will suit a Chemical Engineering graduate with a minimum of 4 years post-primary experience (which can include a combination of industry and postgraduate studies) who is also comfortable working in a start-up environment.

Ideally you are passionate about fighting Climate Change and understand the significance of Global Warming and the critical role that Atmospheric Carbon Capture plays in mitigating Global Warming.
