Summer Internship: Engineering a Biodigester
Imagine a world where food waste from restaurants, cafeterias and kitchens is no longer a liability that requires a vast disposal infrastructure to handle, but instead is a valuable resource that can be converted into energy onsite. Now imagine that every kitchen in the world had a machine that can do this.
That’s what we’re out to create.
We are looking for creative engineers to help build a prototype of the Flux Omnivore, a small anaerobic digester that will turn food waste into renewable natural gas and fertilizer at the source where the waste is produced.
You will have the opportunity to get involved in an innovative cleantech startup at the ground floor. You will also be getting hands-on experience building a physical technology, while learning how to work with various materials and tools.
Get a jumpstart on your career and help to really change the world.
