Advisor – Sustainable Waste-to-Energy Processing

Svåheia Eiendom AS (SEAS) has experienced significant growth over the recent months, and we see a need to expand our advisory team. We are involved in several different energy and waste related projects, and we are actively working on regulatory processes to prepare our industrial park for our ongoing and future activities. The biggest growth driver is the Horizon Europe project CARBIOW (Carbon Negative Biofuels from Organic Waste), where we have recently been entrusted with greater responsibility and additional tasks. As a result of this development, we are seeking to employ an advisor in the field of Sustainable Waste-to-Energy Processing.

As an advisor within the field of Sustainable Waste-to-Energy Processing, you will be involved in the planning, development and installation of a W-t-E pilot plant here at Svaaheia and participate in the entire process from waste to energy. As a part of our team, you will aid in the identification of technical and safety requirements for logistics and storage of biomass, torrefaction process, oxygen conversion, and syngas production. In order to properly identify safety requirements, safety assessments for the process, storage, and distribution will be necessary, with particular focus on our area and the technology being developed by our partners in the CARBIOW project. Furthermore, we want you to assist in the development of an approved solution for waste conversion with negative carbon emissions, based on thermochemical conversion of biomass into fuel with an integrated CCUS solution. Equally important as the conversion process is what to convert, and therefore you will also be involved in optimizing a homogenized mixture of available organic masses, in order to make the process as efficient as possible.

Who are we looking for?

At SEAS we know that qualifications are relative, and that academic competence can be just as valuable as acquired experience, which is why we encourage anyone who views themselves as qualified to apply. A significant portion of our activities falls within the purview of industrial research, and we utilize academic approaches in most of our projects. As such, it is desirable that you have a master’s degree in a field relevant to the position. Relevant experience is viewed favourably, and it is of interest if you have previously participated in EU projects, but most important is that you possess and can contribute with relevant expertise in our team.

Our activities are diverse and span regional and national borders, with key partners in Norway and around Europe, so it is desirable that you are proficient in both Norwegian and English.

What can we offer?

SEAS is situated in a prime location within an attractive and fast-growing region, surrounded by many exciting developments. Currently, there are six active EU projects in the Egersund area, and we work across sectors and regions to develop a comprehensive network and an active knowledge sphere that you can be a part of. We offer competitive employment conditions, including hybrid pension and negotiable salary, as well as the opportunity to participate in the acclaimed CARBIOW project, which received a perfect score from the EU Commission’s expert committee and includes partners across the European continent.

As an advisor, you will receive detailed training, which is quality-assured by Dr. Edesio Miranda-Barbosa, SEAS’ CTO and an expert evaluator in CCUS for the Norwegian Research Council, European Innovation Fund, and Horizon Europe. Our CEO, Arild Refsland, guarantees a work environment where you will be heard and seen from day one and you will have the opportunity to actively contribute to one of Europe’s most exciting energy projects.
