Queens Carbon’s mission is to build a sustainable future by eliminating deep-rooted CO2 emissions in industrial manufacturing and beyond. Backed by Breakthrough Energy Fellows, we’re developing a novel process that dramatically reduces the energy needed to extract and capture CO2 from carbonate minerals. This low energy solution for carbonate processing creates a commercially viable path for widespread carbon capture projects and carbon neutral cement production. At scale, this technology will enable gigaton-scale reductions in industrial CO2 emissions via avoidance and capture routes.
Our team is united behind the idea that preventing climate change is the single most important task of this generation. If you are excited about cutting edge science, saving the environment, and want to have fun while doing it, join us!
As a Lab Technician at Queens Carbon, you will operate testing machinery and lab testing equipment to characterize the physical properties and performance of materials that are used in cement manufacturing and the performance of products made using Queens Carbon’s processes. The process includes following procedures for sample preparation according to either ASTM standards or Queens Carbon specific standard operating procedures. The technician is also tasked with maintaining the testing equipment to ensure it is operating according to either manufacturer’s specifications or according to required standardized testing requirements. Lab Technicians have direct contact with Scientists and Engineers by reporting the results of testing or reporting observations of specimen performance.
