Lithium, Bromine, Iodine, Magnesium & Potash Brine
Chemistry Modeling & Simulation of Salt Lakes, Oil & Gas Produced Water, Geothermal Brine

TRU Group Lithium & Brine Consultants seeks a technical engineering expert in all aspects of brine chemistry simulation and modeling. Sources of brine include Salt Lakes, Oil & Gas Produced Water, Geothermal Brine, Desalination, and Industrial Waste. Typical chemicals to be recovered are Lithium, Bromine, Iodine / Iodide, Potash, Magnesium, Chlor Alkalis, Salt etc.

Simulation modeling for chemical processes for lithium-containing brines, brine concentration, brine evaporation (conventional ponds and new technology evaporation methods), lithium extraction, and lithium chemicals manufacturing from brines as well as engineering, refining and purification. May also involve simulation of extraction of other valuable minerals from brine such as potash, bromine, iodine and magnesium. The candidate must have a strong proven capability in modeling both brine resources and the downstream processing chemical reactions related to pond evaporation and chemical plant processing. The work is related to the salar aquifers of the South American lithium triangle and oil & gas field produced water or geothermal brines. (The largest oil companies are TRU Group clients). A university degree in chemical engineering combined with geology would be an ideal base combination. However, a core requirement is ability to simulate chemical reactions and to optimize those chemical reactions. Expertise in dynamic process modeling software such as Gproms and OLI Stream Analyses and math-statistical programs like Matlab, Mathematica, Origin, Mathcad and JMP7 required.
Please send your resume demonstrating strong expertise and substantial experience in all aspects of lithium brine resource chemistry modeling and chemistry simulation as soon as possible to TRU Group Inc resumes@trugroup.com
