The energy sector and the (chemical) industry are in a transition towards: the use of new feedstock, the use of renewable energy, process and energy efficiency, introduction of circularity and, or course, carbon capture and re-use. The Sustainable Process & Energy group based in Delft (The Netherlands) works on these transitional topics with a fast growing diverse international team or about 65 employees.
The core technical expertise is Gas Treatment and Conversion, Separation technologies, Bio-based Building Block synthesis and Energy Conversion & Storage. We work for (renewable) energy and chemistry companies and in a network of international knowledge partners.
In order to achieve the 2050 European energy and climate sustainability goals for renewable energy, a multi-energy approach on energy generation and conversion is required to release the full potential of intermittent renewable energies. Energy storage (ie storage of electricity, heat, and gas like hydrogen) is indispensable for creating flexibility, allowing to optimize the balance between the supply and demand profiles of energy. The Energy Conversion & Storage team is active in developing these technologies and is currently looking to expand with a research assistant.
