Calculation program for gasification

Only BSc

HoSt is building gasifiers to convert biomass and waste into syngas to produce basic chemicals or H2 or methane. In the past the gasifiers where running with air, but now we need a nitrate free gras. After the gasifier gas is heated up to 1200 C to crack the tars and make a nearly tar-free gas. The goal of the project is: Develop a program calculating the process mass and energy balance, gas composition in a way that it can be used as a design tool and also for sales people to make a quick design.

Your tasks:

  • Learn the gasification process;
  • Model the mass and energy balances of the gasification and tar-cracker process;
  • Make a simple in and out put data sheet (usable for sales people).

Design a biomass in feeding system for a gasifier

Only MSc

HoSt is building gasifiers to convert biomass and waste into syngas to produce basic chemicals or H2 or methane. The gasifiers are running on an overpressure of about 400 mbar. In the in feeding system it has to prevent backflow of gas (CO, H2, tars) . In the past gasifiers where running with air and by putting air on the systems (between rotating valves) gas backflow is prevented. Now the systems will be converted to O2 blown gasifiers and the in feeding system has to be gas tide and a new in feeding system has to be designed

Your tasks

  • Learn the gasification process;
  • Looking for technologies of valves and locks who are gas tight;
  • Make a constructing design for the feeding system;
  • Calculate how much inert gas (CO2) will be needed in the system.


  • BSc / MSc in Chemical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering / Sustainable Energy;
  • Interested in sustainable energy technology;
  • Plan-minded and independent worker.


  • Working at the technology forefront of the energy transition;
  • Groundbreaking tech company in the field of biofuels, carbon capture and thermal conversion;
  • Minimum wage based on 40 hours per week for interns with an EU working license / Monthly fixed fee of € 400 based on 40 hours per week for students without an EU working license. Please note: it depends on your type of internship at HoSt which fee you receive;
  • Lots of responsibility and room for own initiatives;
  • Professional support, guidance and insights;
  • Interesting international environment only a 5-minute walk from the ‘Kennispark’ train station in Enschede;
  • Nice and sustainable welcome gift;
  • A dynamic, energetic, passionate young team;
  • Flexibility in working from home / office.

Bedrijfsprofiel HoSt Bio-energie

HoSt is ontstaan in 1991 uit een samenwerking tussen Holec Projects en Stork, beide gerenommeerde leveranciers van energiesystemen. Vanaf 1999 is HoSt een volledig onafhankelijke organisatie wiens activiteiten zich 100% richten op de technologische ontwikkeling van afval naar energie-systemen voor de verwerking van biomassa en afvalstromen en de levering van systemen voor de duurzame opwekking van energie uit biomassa en afval. HoSt heeft ervaring met en is gespecialiseerd in de verwerking van diverse afvalstromen uit de voedselverwerkende industrie en agrarische (bij)producten, zoals mest, stro, kaf en gras(maaisel). HoSt is gegroeid tot een zeer belangrijke Europese leverancier van bio-energiesystemen met meer dan 27 jaar ervaring, een groot serviceteam door heel Europa en een team van meer dan 120 ingenieurs die hun geavanceerde bio-energiesystemen ontwerpen, bouwen en installeren.
