Our many R&D projects require a dedicated engineer to oversee activities.
Would suit a Process Engineer or Materials Scientist, ideally at MSc level and with a keen interest in sustainability. Based here in Blackburn, Lancashire and helping us to apply our DEECOM® recycling technology to plastics, polymers and composites.
Role: Longworth have patented the DEECOM® process which enables the low carbon reduction, separation and reclamation of plastics and composite waste materials using high temperature, pressured steam. Our mission: to have DEECOM® recognised as a viable global waste solution and alternative to landfill, incineration and carbon-intensive recycling methods. See www.deecomlite.com
Environmentalists at heart and innovators by nature; Longworth require an in-house chemical engineer to oversee progress on a number of ongoing R&D projects and innovations and to enrich our relationships with partners in the academic, RTO and private sectors.
