We are growing our team, and we are looking for an experienced Senior Chemical Engineer with ammonia experience who will play a key role in working on our green ammonia production project. This position will report to the COO. As we are a growing organization, the reporting structure will shift in the near future.
Who we are:
FuelPositive is a Canadian-based, clean technology company, working to fight climate change by creating and developing practical, clean, and sustainable carbon-free solutions that can be implemented economically now. Above all, we believe in being kind – to the earth, to each other, and to ourselves. We believe that being kind will pay dividends for us all. It’s all about Fuel for a Mindful World.
What we make:
Our lead product, an onsite, containerized Green Ammonia production system that is modular and scalable, will revolutionize clean energy through a patent-pending, first-of-its-kind technology invented in Canada. The system takes air, water and a sustainable electricity source to produce green anhydrous ammonia with no carbon emissions. Adoption will dramatically support global targets to reduce CO2 emissions. And our decentralized, in situ approach will bring supply chain independence to our first customers – farmers – for the first time.
If you want to make a Positive impact, be relevant and make a change, join our team and become a part of the solution!
What YOU will do:
In this position you will work with the lead scientist and chemical engineer technician on the experimental side of our green ammonia production project. You will be working on advancing our current technologies pertaining to the generation of hydrogen, nitrogen, and ammonia. Through industry standard scientific methods, including the creation of experiments, you will collaborate with other team members within the science department. Your objective is to support the commercializing of our green ammonia production systems along with developing technological advancements in the areas of electrolyzers, catalysts, membrane technologies and separation. You will work on providing on-site calibration, and validating gas compositions, purity of gases and energy consumption. You are a wizard with analysis and will be providing mass, energy, and entropy balance analysis, along with preparing design calculation, thermos dynamic modelling and design briefs for prototype and research equipment. Additionally, you will work to carry out technical evaluation of process and developed systems through energy efficiencies. In addition, you will be supporting on documentation, preparing equipment specifications, data sheets, developing process design criteria as a basis of the process design. Safety is a priority for everything we do, so you lead testing on ammonia generation system and participate in process safety engineering in every step of the process.
Additional responsibilities will include operating chemical process testing equipment, control room, and hands on process monitoring, conducting basic chemical analytics and lab characterization procedures.
Who YOU are:
You’ve seen our values, and they resonate with you. You are passionate about participating in creating solutions to climate change and have an understanding of the role our systems play in making a positive impact on the world’s fertilizer demands and food shortage issues. You have completed your MSc in Chemical Engineering and have experience in ammonia synthesis and chemical fertilizer industry. Your background has exposed you to thermodynamics, energy and exergy efficiency techniques. You have a basic knowledge of pressurized equipment involving hydrogen and ammonia. Additionally, you possess the ability to communicate clearly, whether it is with your colleagues, suppliers, clients or other stakeholders – talking to people and getting your message across in a positive and collaborative way is a strength of yours. You are also able to provide reports on findings in a concise and thoughtful manner for a variety of audiences. While this position is focused within the Waterloo Region in Ontario, travel will be required, so you should be able to move across Canada and to international locations as needed to support existing installations and future projects.
