Technische Universität Berlin offers an open position:
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) promotes a resource-efficient recycling economy and the development of methods for plastic recycling (https://rb.gy/rgxlzq).
Within this scope, BasCat - UniCat BASF JointLab investigates catalytic hydrogenation of plastic waste to enable a circular plastic economy. This project aims at the efficient use of green hydrogen for turning mixed plastic waste into a raw material for the chemical industry.
The implementation of new raw materials, catalysts, and processes is mandatory to make a significant contribution to a sustainable, energy- and atom-efficient circular economy (closed carbon cycle). The research project is dedicated to heterogeneous catalysis and is conducted by multi-disciplinary teams at TU Berlin.
