Acre has partnered with a publicly traded multi-billion-dollar startup that has piloted a first-of-a-kind energy production technology offering emission reductions greater than 90% of comparable technologies. Once fully commercialized, their technology will grant tens of millions of people across the world access to clean, reliable and low-cost energy.

The team is looking to make their next Research & Development hire who will be focused on carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) technology research and adoption. This is an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the latest and greatest decarbonization technologies while getting invaluable exposure to the full lifecycle of chemical process engineering.

You'd be responsible for:

  • Researching new and emerging CCUS technologies ranging from direct air capture and sequestration to carbon transformation to clean chemicals

  • Support the modelling, design, development and optimization of new processes that you have techno-economic promise per your research

  • Develop and execute laboratory experimentation and conduct data analysis to develop reports validating research findings and technical feasibility

You'd bring to the table:

  • B.S. or M.S. in Chemical, Process, or Environmental engineering coupled with relevant internship experience

  • Experience with process modelling tools like Aspen

  • A deep interest and passion for emerging carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies and knowledge of the CCUS sector and associated technologies

  • Experience testing in a chemical research or lab environment and experience conducting data analysis

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an early career individual to accumulate R&D and process engineering expertise in one of the world's highest growth and highest impact climate technology sectors. If you want to work for a team filled with brilliant engineers at a company developing a novel technology that will have a tangible global impact on decarbonization, please apply!
