Methanol Distillation

After the CO2 and H2 have reacted in the methanol synthesis reactor a mixture of methanol and water remains. This liquid-liquid mixture needs to be separated by using distillation. Several versions of this system have been built and tested. The current available projects are organized around the following key questions.

Key questions:

  • Can we achieve sufficient purity and yield?
  • Can we dynamically operate our distillation unit.
  • Can we achieve the required costs?

Initial contact

Every internship is different and each educational institution requires a different approach. That’s why we start with an assesment of your background to see if there could be a match. It starts with sending us some info (like your CV, starting periode, etc).



After the initial assessment of the info you sent we start with the actual application stage where we plan interviews. In these interviews we discuss your application and give you additional info about ZEF and some specific assignments. If the meetings are positive we can go to the final stage.



If it’s a match it’s time to arrange all the formalities. In this stage we make sure that you have a project description which is approved by your educational institution and we make sure that everything is ready so that you have a great start at ZEF!
