Financial specialist

For the upcoming expansion of Waste4ME and deployment in the field of waste to oil for refineries, Waste4ME is looking for a financial expert. At Waste4ME we have set up a demonstration plant in Moerdijk to verify business cases from several types of waste to oil and gas. The oil we envision to feed into existing refineries. For the expansion of both Waste4ME in staff and Waste4ME deploying factories, the finance management work is increasing, financial modelling becomes more important and reporting is increasing.

Senior process engineer - Waste to chemicals and energy

For upcoming deployment in the field of waste to oil for refineries Waste4ME is looking for an experienced process engineer in this field. At Waste4ME we have set up a demonstration plant in Moerdijk to verify business cases from several types of waste to oil and gas. The oil we envision to feed into existing refineries. Each material flow in has a different oil coming out of which we want to predict the use in refineries and apply new process steps or process modifications that make the connection more fruitful. For that position, we are looking for a senior process engineer with relevant experience.

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.

Internships and graduation projects

Waste to chemicals and energy - graduation project 

The WER pyrolysis technology turns plastics and waste into gas, oil and char included the resulting pollutants that are captured in the waste material. The raw gases leave the reactor around 500 ⁰C and take some of the char, light to heavy fractions, pollutants, CO, CO2 and steam. The heaviest fractions should be returned to the reactor for further cracking and the remaining fractions to be distilled in line with the system without clogging. Each flow will be different based on different material flows in, this increases the challenge of the design 

 

The assignment is to design and model a setup directly situated on top of the reactor. If feasible we implement it and it is possible to test a small setup on our laboratory unit. You will select the best separation (e.g. distillation) technique and make a model of the mass transfer and material flow, basically in line distillation.

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.

Waste to chemicals - practical internship or graduation project

In your position as an intern/graduate will you work at our demonstration location in Moerdijk, the Netherlands and Leiderdorp, the Netherlands (office sometimes). You will work with an international team of entrepreneurs, engineers and other technology providers for operating and modelling the system, modelling the chemical reactions to get a better prediction of outcoming chemicals based on waste inputs from the market and testing the model in real life. We develop the process for chemical recycling and waste to energy. The different input flows for chemical recycling are never pure and we want to develop the right mixtures of materials for optimised output in value and lowest ecological impact.

Waste to chemicals and energy - practical internship or graduation project

In your position as an intern will you work at our demonstration location in Leiderdorp (office) and Moerdijk (operation and office), the Netherlands. 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 tested for a long-term operation to guarantee output products like oil, gas, residue and after conversion in power. You will make a model of the thermodynamic performance of the WER, basically input and output modelling and measuring of mainly the reactor in which we cannot measure every part of the process.

Commercial economy - internship

Do the landfills have a future as a resource for materials in a circular economy?

 

Waste4ME B.V is interested in exploring market opportunities in the context of a circular economy for its prototype system for waste reduction and energy generation at a local or small-scale using pyrolysis. Therefore, we need a skilled person who can work on COCOON Consortium for a Coherent European Landfill Management Strategy in order to identify possible interesting market opportunities for Waste4ME BV.

Pyrolytic system modelling - internship

This internship 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 internship, and focuses on both start-up conditions and full continuous operation.

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, 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.
