2021 - 2022 Engineering Internship Programme
As an Engineering Intern with Clean Planet Energy, you will have an opportunity to work with a passionate team ready to equip you with the skills and hands-on expertise you may need to begin a successful career in process design and engineering. You will be part of a unique multidisciplinary team and be involved in a wide range of activities within an engineering project lifespan.
Clean Planet Energy (CPE) is a renewable and alternative energy company, converting non-recyclable plastic waste into ultra-clean commercial grade fuels with negligible sulphur and nitrous oxide content and low CO2 emissions. CPE’s mission is to continuously devise and implement sustainable technology that will prevent toxic plastic waste from damaging the earth’s environment and oceans, while reducing the demand for dirty-diesel, as well as diverting tens of thousands of tonnes of plastic waste annually away from landfills, incinerations, and oceans.
For the above purposes, CPE are developing a series of environmentally-friendly ecoPlants, designed and engineered to take any waste plastic feedstock and, through various chemical processes, convert into ultra-clean ultra-low sulphur circular fuels and petrochemical feedstocks.
