Pyrolytic system modelling - internship

 

The present Internship proposal focuses on the deep understanding of the on-going reactions occurring in our WER as well as throughout the whole pyrolysis system.

 

By knowing the reactions that are specific to the type of feedstock submitted to pyrolysis, Waste4ME will be able to optimize processes parameters. This is crucial for full conversion of the waste, as well as for fine-tuning the WER in order to obtain the most valuable outputs. The behavioral characteristics of the feedstock used when submitted to thermal depolymerization is the core aspect of this internship, and focuses on both start-up conditions, and full continuous operation.

Process operator - full-time position

 

Since our system is a recent creation of Waste4ME, we need a skilled person who can run safety and inspection rounds in order to identify potential issues linked to continuous use. Therefore, your task is to ensure the proper functioning of the equipment used by Waste4ME, including first-line maintenance.

As a process operator working for Waste4ME, you will be controlling and monitoring our pyrolysis facility in accordance with safety, quality and environmental requirements. Also, you will be checking, operating and adjusting the processes parameters if of crucial importance in the scope of maintaining the desired pyrolytic conditions of our Waste-to-energy recovery (WER) system.

Redesign of oil storage and oil upgrading unit - research internship

At our company Waste4ME, we have developed a prototype system for waste reduction and energy generation at a local or small-scale using pyrolysis. One of the products of this system is pyrolysis oil. The oil is stored in small tanks and most of the components are operated manually. The pyrolysis oil does not have a standard composition and may require refining. We have an open internship position for a student to research oil storage and refining.

 

Research existing oil upgrading and treatment techniques and design a storage and upgrading module to process, separate and store the pyrolysis oil.

Catalysts application in pyrolysis - research internship

Pyrolysis is the core technology used at Waste4ME for waste streams valorization; it is defined as a thermo-chemical treatment, which can be applied to any organic (carbon-based) product. During pyrolysis, material is exposed to high temperature, in the absence of oxygen, and is submitted to chemical and physical separation into different molecules.

 

The present internship opportunity is about Investigating the potential application for all liquid, solid, and gaseous products to be used as fuels or chemical building blocks. For Waste4ME, on-going research focuses on the possibilities for upgrading and improving our pyrolytic system; specifically, the use of catalysts and their implementation, influences of reaction conditions and business case justification.

Legal aspect of waste conversion - practical internship 

At our company Waste4ME BV, we have developed a prototype system for waste reduction and energy generation at a local or small scale. Waste4ME recently received a request about the possibility of using our technology for the processing of biological waste from the meat industry, more specifically cow carcasses. 

 

In the Netherlands, ‘The Animals Act’ describes, among other things, how animal carcasses and residual biological material must be disposed of to guarantee the safety of public health. A specific point of attention for this type of waste is the prevention of the spread of mad cow disease or Creutzfeldt-Jacobs disease. In order to be certified as a technology that can process such waste, various legal requirements must first be met. At Waste4ME we are looking for a law student who likes a challenge to legally complete the case in cooperation with the technical and commercial staff of Waste4ME.
