Wat ga je doen?

The department of R&D at AEROX innovates in the field of air purification technology, including cold plasma reactors and fix bed catalytic oxidizers. For specific applications we take advantage of the fact that air-born pollutants can be efficiently transferred to water and we use plasma activated water to more controllably oxidize the pollutants in the liquid phase. This is an innovation in the field of water scrubber technology, where cold plasma oxidizing species replace common more expensive chemicals (e.g., sulfuric acid), resulting in less water consumption and less chemicals needed.

You will be part of a multidisciplinary R&D team, and work in close collaboration with Dr. Marco Valenti on:

  • Designing and performing experiments with our plasma activated scrubber prototype. Key performance indicators of the plasma activated scrubber will be determined and tested in the lab by you, targeting the performance needed for a specific industrial application. The tests will take place in Vleuten.
  • Carrying out flow, humidity, temperature, and chemical measurements.
  • Validating, together with other members of the R&D team, the technology in the field (industrial site in Germany), once the desired performance is achieved in the lab. Your goal is to bring our plasma activated scrubber to a technology readiness level (TRL) 6.
  • Analysing and model data.
  • Testing at Aerox (Vleuten) and at an industrial site (Germany).

Wat vragen wij?

A motivated bachelor or master chemical engineer, applied physics or chemistry student who wants to become part of our team.

Wat bieden wij?

The last few years have been going fast; we have grown into a major player in the odour reduction market in a short time. We are therefore looking for hard-working students who are motivated to really make a difference. Ambitious students who want to work for the world of tomorrow. Of course we offer an internship allowance.
