Junior Technician Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Synthetic Fuels

Vacaturenummer: A2200070
TNO Sustainable Process & Energy Systems - Delft (Nederland)

For our client, TNO Sustainable Process & Energy Systems, we are looking for a Junior Technician Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Synthetic Fuels.


  • B.Sc./M.Sc. Chemical Engineering or Process Technology
  • Pressurised flow/vacuum systems/twin ferrules couplings
  • Carbon Capture/Synthetic Fuels
  • Scale up

The energy sector and the (chemical) industry are in a transition towards the use of new feedstock, the use of renewable energy, increasing process and energy efficiency, circularity, synthetic fuels and carbon capture and utilisation. The department Sustainable Process & Energy Systems works on all these transition topics. Our core technical expertise is Gas Treatment and Conversion, Separation technologies, thermo-catalytic conversion, Electrochemistry, Bio-based Building Block synthesis, Energy Conversion & Storage and Plastic recycling. We work for and with (renewable) energy and chemistry companies and in a network of international knowledge partners. The department is very international oriented, in work as well as in staff in the department.

Some typical projects/programs we are working on:
  • Carbon capture and carbon (re)use technology development and piloting;
  • Hydrogen as a carbon-free fuel and feedstock;
  • Electrification of the industry;
  • Biomass valorisation: biogas as a fuel and feedstock, biomass conversion to aromatics.
With an increasing work stock, we are looking for a junior lab technician who wants to work on the topics of
Carbon Capture and Utilisation and Synthetic Fuels. You will be part of the lab team that builds set-ups and performs measurements in our lab as well as at the premises of our clients.

Who we're looking for
The ideal candidate would have the following background:
  • B.Sc. (HBO) or Master in e.g., Process Technology or Chemical Engineering;
  • At least 1 year of work experience in a process laboratory environment or similar;
  • Experience with pressurised flow systems, vacuum systems and twin ferrules couplings;
  • You understand the challenges of developing technology that needs to be scaled up;
  • Experience with Labview;
  • Affinity with Carbon Capture technologies and Synthetic fuels;
  • Fluent in English.

We are looking for someone who enjoys developing innovative solutions to technically challenging problems, by combining the right mix of intellectual curiosity and a pragmatic approach. You like to work in projects that are challenging and can have strict deadlines. You have good interpersonal skills and proactive communication.
Are you the team player we are looking for?

Company profile
The diverse background in (bio-)process engineering, gas capture and treatment, and thermal energy at TNO gives them a strong position to work towards a sustainable industry and society. Together with their partners, they set the goal to create new technologies and processes that benefit people & our planet, without compromising profit.

Three areas of their current interest are:

  • Green chemistry, where they look at utilisation of biobased feedstock for production of chemicals and at sustainable chemical processing, e.g. electrochemical conversions.
  • Gas treatment, which provides solutions, for the production of renewable gases (biogas, syngas, hydrogen, etc.) and for the capture and utilisation of CO2.
  • Thermal energy, which covers both energy conversion to heat (and back) as well as heat storage.
Within these areas they create optimised & efficient processes, develop high-performing prototypes, and transfer their knowledge so their partners and clients will gain that competitive edge. This can take the form of sub-systems, but also of complete, integrated set-ups. In addition, they can arrange benchmarking and test compliance with appropriate standards and regulations.
