Investigation on developing a scaled-up plant to remove hazardous metals from spent catalyst in Newfoundland and Labrador

The aim of this internship is to investigate the possibility of a scaled-up green process to design, and develop an industrial plant to remove the hazardous materials from spent secondary materials such as spent petrochemical catalysts, in Atlantic Canada. The intern will be responsible to develop a whole process flow diagram, as well as a detailed cost analysis. By identifying a feasible environmentally-friendly process, the industrial plat will be able to treat various hazardous wastes locally, thus there are different potential short and long-term benefits to the partner organization
