As the Business Development Coordinator (based in the France), the job will be an exciting opportunity for a candidate who really wants to learn about all aspects of business in the Clean Tech industry. You will be getting invaluable hands-on experience, working with commercial, operations and technical teams. The position will report to the Commercial & Business Development Director of CPE and French Leadership team.
The skills and knowledge you acquire in this role will likely serve you very well in your future careers. Equally there is the real prospect to develop the role and make it your own.
Clean Planet Energy (CPE) is a cleantech, renewable and alternative energy company, converting non-recyclable waste plastics into ultra-clean commercial grade fuels and circular-oils which emit negligible sulphur and nitrous oxide content, and significantly lower CO2 emissions. CPE’s mission is to remove over 1 million tonnes of non-recyclable plastic waste from our environment every year. We will achieve this mission by continuously devising and implementing sustainable green technologies and processes (such as the Clean Planet ecoPlant) that prevent toxic plastic waste from damaging the earth’s environment and oceans, while also reducing the world’s demand for high-emission fossil fuels and petrochemicals products. We aim to divert non-recyclable waste plastics away from the word’s landfills, incinerators, and oceans - a major environmental win.
CPE are developing and deploying a series of environmentally friendly EcoPlants; a process plant designed and engineered to accept almost any waste plastic (feedstock) and, through various chemical processes, convert the waste into commercial grade low-carbon, ultra-clean, ultra-low sulphur circular fuels and oils. These can be used as replacements for traditional high-emissions fossil-based fuels, and for also making new plastics.
