Within the framework of the European HYCON project, IRCELYON has the task of converting oils from hydrothermal liquefaction of brown coal and other wastes into higher value added products. This conversion pathway will involve hydroconversion or hydrocracking. These reactions will be performed under H2 pressure and in the presence of catalysts. The post-doctoral student will explore the reactivity of these complex liquids, adapt the catalysts and characterize the feed and effluents. The acquired data will be used as a basis for a kinetic modeling performed by another partner.


- Expertise of pressurized conversion tools (closed, semi-open or continuous reactors) depending on the load to be converted.
- Knowledge of synthesis methods and characterization of heterogeneous catalysts
- Good expertise in chromatographic analytical methods (GC, SEC, ...)
- involvement with the upstream and downstream partners of the project.


The post-doctoral student must have a good knowledge of heterogeneous catalysis and physico-chemistry, notions of process engineering and experience in the use of pressurized reactors. Given the context of the project, a good level in English is required.

Work Context

The work will take place at IRCELYON and in close collaboration with our Polish, English, German, Greek and French partners. The HYCON project is funded by the RFCS (Research Fund for Coal and Steel) of the EC (proposal number 899471). A set of deliverables and reports will therefore be required.

Constraints and risks

The use of pressurized reactors requires great rigor and a good knowledge of the risks associated with this type of equipment.
