The Institute of Future Fuels investigates processes for a sustainable production of chemicals and fuels, in particular solar-driven high temperature processes are investigated.
In one of these processes, a metal oxide is first reduced at high temperatures (>1400°C) and then oxidized with water, carbon dioxide or both at lower temperatures (900°C). Hydrogen, carbon monoxide or a mixture of them (syngas) is produced during the oxidation.
The syngas can be further processed to various fuels and chemicals, for example to kerosene via a Fischer Tropsch process. Concentrating solar systems provide the required energy; the reduction step requires most of it.
In the PhD thesis, you should further develop, evaluate and finally test an innovative solar reactor and plant concept, which is based on a particulate redox material. According to first assessments, the concept promises record-braking efficiencies. You get the chance to make them reality.
You will be part of a diverse and motivated international team aiming to build a sustainable future. With the participation in the courses of DLR’s Graduate Program you get the opportunity to educate yourself in skills like presentation techniques, project management, efficient communication, etc.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives.
Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).
