Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a UK-wide programme that has been helping businesses for the past 40 years to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK Knowledge Base. Queen’s University Belfast has partnered with businesses through KTP for over 25 years, and in May 2019 was the winner of the National Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution from a KTP Support Team’. Through the KTP programme we wish to recruit a dynamic, highly skilled and motivated graduate to work in Colloide in a collaboration with the School of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering at Queen’s over 24 months.
Colloide is a highly skilled process engineering company, specialising in water treatment, energy, environmental and facilities engineering solutions. Our services range from design through to construction, installation, commissioning, maintenance and overall project management. Our experience is wide ranging, from major water utility installations and innovative ‘first of its kind’ district heating projects through to work with breweries on process improvements and biomass heating installations on farms.
Colloide have recently started working in the anaerobic digestion (AD) sector. Whilst there is strong demand for AD technology, continued growth is limited by the restrictions around the disposal of the liquid digestate produced. The project aims to develop innovative processes to treat such emissions within this sector.
