Development of adsorbent materials for the design of bi-functional catalysts for integrated CO2 capture and conversion.
The objective of the project is to develop materials for more efficient ICCU processes (CO2 capture and utilization). This will be accomplished by developing a targeted number of novel composite DFM catalysts (bifunctional solid is used (so-called dual functional material). The strategy for achieving the project goals includes the synthesis of novel materials and the employment of in situ advanced physicochemical characterization and analysis techniques to understand the underlying phenomena which define the performance and stability of the DFM. The interaction between advanced characterization and catalytic testing experiments will stimulate a learning process and will rationally guide all activities aimed at developing a prototype DFM catalyst.


The researcher will have as main task to prepare and characterize catalytic supports (hydrotalcites, oxides, mixed oxides, clays, ..) with enhanced adsorption properties for CO2 capture at high temperature.


- PhD in industrial chemistry, material science, catalysis.
- Knowledge in materials science, physico-chemical characterizations, catalysis.
- Experience in applied R&D and systems understanding
- Mastery of solid material characterization techniques
- Writing reports and articles for international journals
- Dynamic and independent, able to work in a team environment.
- Proved capacity to present the work in international conferences
- Fluent in written and oral English and French (mandatory) – Level B2 minimum

Work Context

The researcher recruited on the project will have access to all the characterization techniques available on the platform at the IS2M and to specific technical tools dedicated to the project (high temperature oven for the synthesis of fluorohectorite clay and TG-DSC for CO2 adsoprtion) to successfully conduct his/her research.
Finally, this project, that is carried out in collaboration with the ICPEES (Institut de chimie et procédés pour l'énergie, l'environnement et la santé ) laboratory in Strasbourg and IRCELYON (Institut de recherche sur la catalyse et l'environnement de Lyon) in Villeurbanne will enable the non-permanent researcher to develop complementary and formative scientific and technological skills for a future occupational integration.
The workplace is the Institute of Materials Science of Mulhouse (IS2M), it counts 160 personnel staff and 11 technical platforms certified ISO 9001.
The researcher will integrate the Transfer, Reactivity, Materials for Clean Processes (TRM2P) team. The TRM2P team is working on energy storage (hydrogen vector and recovery of fatal heat), material and energy recovery of bio-sourced products (development of chars for agronomic, environmental and energy applications), on the development of innovative processes for the synthesis of clay-type lamellar compounds (modulation of synthesis conditions according to the intended application), on the formulation of composite materials for separation, controlled release of active molecules and adsorption of pollutants in the gas and liquid phase, and on the development and use of specific characterization methods (calorimetry,..) and modelling of process-adapted mass and heat transfers (knowledge model,..).
The researcher will benefit from a dynamic environment and, in agreement with his/her hierarchical manager, internal technical training at the IS2M, training courses offered by the CNRS and University of Haute Alsace and participation in international congresses to present the results of his/her research. The researcher will partly work in Strasbourg and Lyon for characterization of the catalytic materials.

Constraints and risks

Travelling from Mulhouse to Strasbourg and Lyon is expected.
