Bio Engineering

Responsibilities

Carbon Crusher uses a green carbon binder to stabilize the roads, a key component of making the roads carbon negative. Today this is based on lignin, and going forward we will develop/ integrate new versions of the binder, either from lignin or other sustainable materials, with the ambition of 5x-ing the current carbon reduction abilities. In addition, we will develop new products, of which chemistry and road-bitech will play a crucial role. The bio team work on two topics: 

Ensure sufficient supply, test and further develop binder and new road additives 

  • Work closely with key partners to verify road properties and additional carbon reduction effect 
  • Work closely with current supplier, new suppliers, academic institutions, and R&D labs to ensure proper supply and develop the next generations of binder and materials with complementary binding properties 

New product development 

  • Develop new biology based products that otherwise contribute to road quality and/or carbon reduction or removal, including enzymes and new material composites 

Profile

  • Masters Degree or PhD in relevant chemistry or biotech area 
  • Experience from paper production or lignin related topics highly valued 
  • 3-5 years work/academia experience valued
  • Willingness to travel occasionally to suppliers
