Clean-up of Circular Carbon Streams for Sustainable Light Olefin Production
The demand for light olefins (ethylene, propylene and butylenes) is still expected to increase at rates of 6%, which is mainly driven by the strong growth in the polyethylene and polypropylene markets.
Traditionally, light olefins are prepared by steam cracking of condensates, naphtha or the like.
Dow is actively developing new technologies which can make use of alternative feedstocks for the production of light olefins. Some of these technologies are based on recycled carbon streams (circular economy), which all come with specific impurities and challenges.
Therefore we are looking for a student with hands-on lab skills, clear focus on Proof-of-Concept experiments and validation of suitable materials for clean-up of circular carbon streams (75+% lab work).
This offer is not limited to graduation year students, more junior candidates will be considered based on talents and competencies.
