In 2019 we have initiated our circular economy portfolio. Engineers Without Borders – The Netherlands has been involved in many exciting projects, which come from our potential partners in developing countries. Many innovative ideas and promising initiatives have emerged to move from a linear to a circular model.
This time we are looking for a team to realize the execution phase with our new partner, Jos Green Centre (JGC), which aims to create a plastic recycling process in the Jos area (Nigeria).
Inspired by our design challenge “Closed-loop Plastics System” (partner: EcoBrixs) focused on plastic recycling, JGC would like to replicate a similar system, based on the local needs. Therefore, the team will contribute to creating one of the first plastic waste management systems in the Jos area.
Excited to know if this role would be a great fit? Keep on reading!
Currently, due to budget constraints, the feasibility study is aimed to start in October 2021 and be delivered by the end of January 2022.
We are looking for 4 – 5 team members with the following qualifications:
All the openings at Engineers Without Borders are unpaid volunteer positions. We dedicate our free time to improve life in developing countries and have fun and a great learning experience by doing so.
Our only expectation is that you dedicate the amount of free time you feel comfortable with and commit to this. Would you like to get more information before applying? Or do you have questions?
