    Sustainable Energy Solutions is developing a carbon capture technology to separate CO2 from fossil-fueled power plants. The process is called Cryogenic Carbon Capture, and it works by cooling the flue gas down to -135 degrees C where 99% of the CO2 desublimates out of the gas. We are looking for a Chemical or Mechanical Engineer with a gook knowledge of heat and mass transfer, thermodynamics, and CAD design. Anyone with experience designing heat exchangers is preferable.

    Their website,, has a general description of the process, but keep in mind the process has been greatly modified from the flow diagram shown as it may not be updated until patents are filed. If interested, please contact Chris Bence at
