Trinity Green Energies Ltd (TGE) is a spin out company from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and is focused on providing innovative solutions to the challenge of Climate Change. These solutions are based on Carbon Capture technologies developed in TCD and University College Dublin during the past 5 years. The systems have been developed in the lab and it is time now to build the prototype and commercial process at scale and bring them to market. As part of this activity TGE is recruiting a Mechanical Engineer, a Chemical Engineer and Chemist.

Chemical Engineering Position in Carbon Capture

TGE is recruiting a Chemical Engineer with experience in adsorption processes.

 

The Chemical Engineer will be supported by the Chief Technical Officer and will be responsible for:

  • Aiding in the design and procurement of the component parts of the prototype Temperature Vacuum Swing Adsorption (TVSA) Unit.
  • Testing & optimising the TVSA process in the laboratory.
  • Aiding in the scale up of the TVSA units from laboratory to full scale adsorber modules.
  • Producing relevant safety and operational documentation for the modules.
  • Advising on recommended commissioning and operating parameters as well as engagement with stakeholders including potential Customers and Suppliers

 

The ideal candidate will:

  • Possess advanced knowledge of gas phase adsorption/desorption processes on/from porous solids
  • Possess experience in handling and testing of porous solids for gas phase processes.
  • Possess practical experience in the design and assembly of the component parts of an adsorption (or similar) unit.
  • Preferably possess skills and experience in modelling adsorption/desorption processes
  • Demonstrate the motivation and ability to solve challenging design problems under tight time constraints.
  • Have the flexibility and adaptability to thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment.

 

Applications are sought from excellent candidates with the requisite background. The position would suit a Chemical Engineering graduate (or similar) with a minimum of 3 years industrial or postgraduate experience who would also be comfortable working in a start-up environment. The person should also be ambitious about tackling Climate Change and have an appreciation of the significance of carbon emissions mitigation and control on Global Warming.

 

Remuneration is subject to negotiation. The position is based in the IDA Business Park, Cork Road, Waterford, Ireland.

Chemistry Position in Sorbent Characterisation

The Chemist will be supported by the Chief Technical Officer and will be responsible for:

 

  • Investigating and understanding the relationship between sorbent performance and the surface and bulk properties of sorbents
  • Working with the engineering team to optimise the performance of the sorbents

 

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have excellent experimental skills
  • Be familiar with and demonstrate practical experience in sorbent (or solid particle) characterisation, e.g. adsorption isotherm analysis for elucidation of BET surface area and pore characteristics, dynamic vapour sorption, thermo gravimetric analysis, surface chemical analysis, mechanical strength analysis
  • Demonstrate the motivation and ability to meet project deadlines under tight time constraints.
  • Have the flexibility and adaptability to thrive in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment.

 

Applications are sought from excellent candidates with the requisite background. The position would suit a Chemistry (or similar) postgraduate with experience in characterisation of solids who would also be comfortable working in a start-up environment. The person should also be ambitious about tackling Climate Change and have an appreciation of the significance of carbon emissions mitigation and control on Global Warming.
