Part-time & suitable for students

Process operator 

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.

WER automation - practical internship or graduation project

In your position as an intern will you work at our demonstration location in Moerdijk, the Netherlands and Leiderdorp, the Netherlands (office). You will work with an international team of entrepreneurs, engineers and other technology providers for operating and automating the system, modelling our system and testing the model in real life. The WER should be automated for unmanned, but guarded operation and remote controlling. You will work to design, create and implement the control system.

Pyrolytic system modelling - graduation program

This graduation program 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 behavioural characteristics of the feedstock used when submitted to thermal depolymerization is the core aspect of this graduation program, and focuses on both start-up conditions and full continuous operation.

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, the material is exposed to high temperature, in the absence of oxygen, and is submitted to chemical and physical separation into different molecules.

 

This 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.

Human resources internship

Are you curios about setting up an onboarding/training system for a start-up? Are you eager to work on establishing a measurable renumeration system without disturbing health and safety and teamwork? Are you ready to test your skills and knowledge in a multidisciplinary and multicultural team? Do you want to gain exposure to a fast-paced, collaborative office environment, and apply the knowledge you learned in the school?

Waste4ME is currently looking for an HR intern to contribute to its employee onboarding system as well as renumeration system. Your task, as an HR intern, is to design an introduction and training package to be offered to the new employees at Waste4ME. For this, you need to fully understand Waste4ME’s work ethics, business expectations and employee needs.

Database designer and administrator internship

The database specialist design, implement, update, modify, and maintain the system he/she put in place to meet the needs of Waste4ME. We perform regular analysis on the pyrolysis input and output plus loads of operating parameters from different subsystems and thus needs a database system in order for the team to be able to find data quickly and efficiently. Therefore, the focus is set on a database design that is usable and safe for the company’s specific database application or a set of applications.

The person we are looking for will have a knowledge of database principles and how they apply to the real world. You will be designing and building database systems that are highly available and must be confident within all stages of our business, from initial requirements analysis, data modelling and as a great optional asset, through to  automated reporting from compiled and selected data.

Internship logistics output

When working with waste as feedstock for our pyrolysis process, the output of the process are gas, ash and oil. These three materials have a different way on how to get to the costumers/end users. The gas is being used inhouse, but the ashes and oil are being transported away. These materials should be weighed, checked on contents and relevant paperwork needs to be filled in. Also, the way that the ashes and oil are transported and all the legislation that is involved with it needs to be researched. As an intern your task is to help set up this process in a logical and efficient manner in line with the company.

Internship logistics 

When working with waste as feedstock for our process we need to keep track of the different deliveries. There is a procedure before it is taken in. It is weighed, checked on contents and relevant paperwork needs to be filled in. When the waste is taken in it goes through pre-treatment and is stored or processed. When hazardous waste is taken in, the government needs to be notified during different stages of the process above. As an intern your task is to help set up this process in a logical and efficient manner in line with the company processes and data gathered in the process.

Internship Practical programming

For the past months new knowledge was generated and subsequently modifying and improving our small-scale test setup that we use for tests on materials. The developed systems and modules to measure the amount of oil, gas and ash formed, improve the quality of the oil and develop a basic mathematical model of the pyrolysis reaction. Now this system was setup by academia and time to translate this into a practical test setup. As intern in practical programming your task is to integrate these separate systems or modules into 1 system.

Internship Pyrolytic gas output: Processing options

Waste4ME has opened a graduation/an internship position to give talented students and graduates a real role in our business. The internship will focus on completing a major project with clear deliverables and outcomes. Our demonstration pyrolysis plant is constantly researched upon in order to prove technical and economical feasibility. One of this crucial topic is the processing and storage of our pyrolytic gas. Therefore, your internship will focus on the design for future implementation of a realistic project for the processing and storage of the output.

Not only will you come up with a realistic functional design for processing and storing our pyrolysis gas, but this project will be made in such a way that it complies with relevant limits of gas impurities and focusing on the separation of usable gases. You will also be responsible for developing and designing the system which could make use of the pyrolytic gas for energy generation.
