Senior Project Manager (USA)

Engineering Department


The Senior Project Manager will be considered a key-worker within the Clean Planet Energy USA organisation. Working daily with the USA CEO and COO, the global Project lead, and the UK Team. In addition to supporting the co-ordination and alignment of the engineering team and engineering responsibilities to successfully deliver the projects.


Clean Planet Energy has aggressive plans for growth in North America with the support of our funding partner. The Project Manager will work closely with the CPE USA development team to progress the pipeline of opportunities into an implemented ecoPlant delivery programme.


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.

  • The Project Manager will be responsible and accountable for identifying potential project and programme challenges (especially in association with cost and time impacts) and working with the wider CPE team to identify and implement effective mitigation measures.

  • The Project Manager will excel in communicating between both technical and operations internally. The Project Manager will need to find the balance needed to support both sides in the journey from concept to commissioning of each ecoPlant.
