Carbon Recycling International (CRI) develops, markets, and produces renewable methanol from industrial CO2 emissions. The company markets and distributes renewable methanol (RM, Vulcanol) in EU and Iceland. Vulcanol can be blended with gasoline in low level blends suitable for all gasoline powered cars. CRI is planning larger production at other sites in Iceland.
JOB SUMMARY: The assignment is to develop techno-economic models of state-of-the art, efficient large scale water electrolysis systems for Power to Fuel applications. The project will involve configuring flow sheets, building a simulation model and optimize heat integration of the electrolysis system with CRI’s ETL technology. Of particular interest is the improved efficiency from geothermal and other sources of renewable or waste heat. The output of the work is intended to support the development of future production plants with higher energy efficiency and lower cost.
