At Leilac we’re passionate about enabling the transition to a carbon neutral world by providing the most compelling decarbonisation solution for global cement and lime.
Leilac’s technology is being developed to efficiently separate CO2 released unavoidably from the processing of limestone ready for use or storage, without additional chemicals or processes. It is designed to be low cost, scalable, retrofittable, energy agnostic and electrification ready, providing the most economical pathways to carbon free cement and lime.
Leilac’s vision is the rapid creation of sustainable cement and lime for industry, global society and our planet. Our purpose-driven team are unwavering in their commitment to solve this urgent global challenge.
The Senior Mechanical Design Engineer will support the engineering design development of the Calix calciner technology within cement, lime and other industrial processing industries. This will require the engineer to take ownership of particular design areas and drive the tasks and responsibilities that are delegated to them by lead project engineers and other business leaders. The Mechanical Design Engineer will support the technology development through all phases of project execution, from feasibility through to commissioning and operations, requiring focus on design, R&D and optimisation.
The Mechanical Design Engineer will form part of a collaborative engineering team and support wider development and commercialisation of the technology through providing engineering mechanical advice and support technoeconomic modelling. This role is primarily home based, and can be based anywhere in Ireland, the UK or France.
