Lead Process Engineer for Carbon Capture, Gas Treatment and Compression


The candidate will be requested to support the development, optimization, and execution of process solutions aimed to capture CO2 from industrial exhaust gasses. The CO2 absorption processes are based on aqueous solutions, i.e., mixtures of amines, ammonia or ammonia plus salts, and comprise flue gas conditioning section, absorption section, regeneration section and solvent recovery and storage section.


As a Lead Process Engineer, the candidate will be responsible for:

  • Participating to the full process design starting from early project stages supporting feasibility, pre-FEED, FEED and EPC activities for CO2 capture technologies and gas treatment and compression process plant development;
  • Performing simulations for the CO2 capture process plant, with specific software i. e. Aspen Plus, OLI, Promax Hysys, Unisim;
  • Preparing process deliverables such Heat & Material Balance, pressure drops and hydraulic calculations, Process Narratives and lists;
  • Sizing main process equipment as column and column’s internals, pumps, heat exchangers, vessels etc.;
  • Developing drawings as PFDs, P&IDs up to ‘as built’ level;
  • Participating and contributing to design reviews and safety reviews (Hazid, Hazop, FERA, FMEA, etc.) from conceptual to detailed design.



  • Have a Master’s Degree in Chemical or Mechanical Engineering;
  • Have experience in process engineering and carbon capture technology, including a general understanding of solvent selection and its impact on the process design. Mixed Salt Process and Chilled Ammonia Process technologies in-depth expertise will be considered preferential;
  • Have knowledge about packing design and selection, for separation and absorption, from gas to liquid and vice versa. Experiences with packing suppliers and their related products;
  • Have general knowledge of the various gas purification technologies based on the different separation techniques, i.e., absorption, adsorption, distillation, filtration, etc;
  • Display knowledge of International Codes like API, ANSI, ASME;
  • Have experience working in a team involved in design and development of new products;
  • Have excellent written and verbal communications skills. Fluency in English is essential.
