Internships R&D Biogas

  • Enschede, Overijssel, Netherlands

Job description

For the R&D Biogas engineering department we are looking for interns! The following internships / graduation assignments are available. Apply using the apply button and select the (graduation) internship you are interested in.

Calculation program for gasification

Only BSc

HoSt is building gasifiers to convert biomass and waste into syngas to produce basic chemicals or H2 or methane. In the past the gasifiers where running with air, but now we need a nitrate free gras. After the gasifier gas is heated up to 1200 C to crack the tars and make a nearly tar-free gas. The goal of the project is: Develop a program calculating the process mass and energy balance, gas composition in a way that it can be used as a design tool and also for sales people to make a quick design.

Your tasks:

  • Learn the gasification process;
  • Model the mass and energy balances of the gasification and tar-cracker process;
  • Make a simple in and out put data sheet (usable for sales people).

Design a biomass in feeding system for a gasifier

Only MSc

HoSt is building gasifiers to convert biomass and waste into syngas to produce basic chemicals or H2 or methane. The gasifiers are running on an overpressure of about 400 mbar. In the in feeding system it has to prevent backflow of gas (CO, H2, tars) . In the past gasifiers where running with air and by putting air on the systems (between rotating valves) gas backflow is prevented. Now the systems will be converted to O2 blown gasifiers and the in feeding system has to be gas tide and a new in feeding system has to be designed

Your tasks:

  • Learn the gasification process;
  • Looking for technologies of valves and locks who are gas tight;
  • Make a constructing design for the feeding system;
  • Calculate how much inert gas (CO2) will be needed in the system.

Job requirements
