The project ‘’Modelling and experimental validation of HTW bubbling fluidized bed gasification’’ is a collaboration between GIDARA Energy and TU Delft. The aim of the gasification process is to generate a syngas which, after cleanup and upgrading, will be suitable for fossil-free methanol production. In the project there is active collaboration with a PhD student who performs CFD modeling in combination with ANN modeling to arrive at a better process understanding for process scale-up. The goal of the research by the Postdoc is to perform accompanying validating experiments, both via Cold flow experiments using a downscaled version of the gasifier at TU Delft and hot testing at a hot fluidised bed gasification setup outside TU Delft. Next to (hot) validation experiments that concern heat and mass transfer, validation gasification measurements at the gasifier will be performed, targeting closure of mass- and energy balances and to obtain more insight in the conversion process of the challenging circular carbon feedstock for further scale-up. The focus of the Postdoc will thus be on experimental work, although knowledge of ANN and/or CFD modeling is considered to be positive in the evaluation.
Fixed-term contract: 2 years.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, discounts on health insurance, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.

Challenge. Change. Impact!
From chip to ship. From machine to human being. From idea to solution. Driven by a deep-rooted desire to understand our environment and discover its underlying mechanisms, research and education at the 3mE faculty focusses on fundamental understanding, design, production including application and product improvement, materials, processes and (mechanical) systems.
3mE is a dynamic and innovative faculty with high-tech lab facilities and international reach. It’s a large faculty but also versatile, so we can often make unique connections by combining different disciplines. This is reflected in 3mE’s outstanding, state-of-the-art education, which trains students to become responsible and socially engaged engineers and scientists. We translate our knowledge and insights into solutions to societal issues, contributing to a sustainable society and to the development of prosperity and well-being. That is what unites us in pioneering research, inspiring education and (inter)national cooperation.
