Responsibilities/Job Description

In line with KTH's goal of a future sustainable society, this effort is aimed at the sustainable goals of Clean and Affordable Energy and Climate Action, especially by enabling negative emissions through the capture of biogenic CO2. It is an important milestone towards a climate-neutral society. The technology used for BeCCS is established and available. Nevertheless, it is costly and innovations are expected to accelerate the implementation of new BeCCS features. In this project, we will increase the understanding of the relevant mechanisms and simulate turbulent heat and mass transport relevant to CO2 capture by droplets. This project mainly focuses on simulations with DNS. The technical goals are:

  • to modify an in-house DNS code to simulate CO2 absorption
  • to simulate with high fidelity the absorption of carbon dioxide from droplets in a turbulent flow.
