Chemical Engineering intern – Applied physics – Chemist

The department of R&D at AEROX innovates in the field of air purification technology, including cold plasma reactors and fix bed catalytic oxidizers. For specific applications we take advantage of the fact that air-born pollutants can be efficiently transferred to water, and we use plasma activated water to more controllably oxidize the pollutants in the liquid phase. This is an innovation in the field of water scrubber technology, where cold plasma oxidizing species replace common more expensive chemicals (e.g., sulfuric acid), resulting in less water consumption and less chemicals needed.

What are you going to do;

This internship vacancy is for an enthusiastic student of chemical engineering, applied physics, chemistry (or similar). During the internship the student will design and perform experiments with our plasma activated scrubber prototype. Key performance indicators of the plasma activated scrubber will be determined and tested in the lab by the student, targeting the performance needed for a specific industrial application. Once the desired performance is achieved in the lab, the student, together with other members of the R&D team, will validate the technology in the field (industrial site). The goal of the internship is to bring our plasma activated scrubber to a technology readiness level (TRL) 6.

As intern you will be part of a multidisciplinary R&D team, and will work in close collaboration with Dr. Marco Valenti.

Who are you;

A motivated BSc or MSc chemical engineer, applied physics or chemistry student

You will be responsible for:

* Design of experiments
* Data analysis and modeling
* Carry out flow, humidity, temperature, and chemical measurements
* Testing at Aerox (Vleuten) and at an industrial site (Germany)

Who are we;

We at Aerox want to create a better quality of life for communities around the world with a sustainable and effective solution to industrial odor problems. A world where everyone can enjoy clean air. The last few years have been going fast; we have grown into a major player in the odor reduction market in a short time and we are therefore looking for hard-working students who are motivated to really make a difference. Ambitious students who want to work for the world of tomorrow.

Who we are

The year 1994 was a turning point in our history. Changes in legislation and increasing market demands led to the creation of the Aerox Injector, developed in collaboration with a leading industry partner. From then on, we decided to focus entirely on the further development of this revolutionary technology, delivering the most effective and sustainable odor reduction solution.

What we do

At Aerox, we pride ourselves on helping the world fight odor problems. Our innovative solutions, which are the result of years of research and development, are used by companies in various industries around the world. We are constantly improving and refining our products and technologies to provide our customers with the best possible solutions. Our priority is always to make a significant contribution to a more sustainable and odor-free world.


The Aerox-Injector is an innovative odor control system based on injection technology that is installed at the end of a production process or in the chimney. Already more than 250 plants around the world benefit from our proven effective technology.

Aerox RCO

The Aerox-RCO is an innovative emission control system based on catalytic technology that is installed at the end of a production process or in the stack. The Aerox-RCO (Regenerative Catalytic Oxidizer) destroys emissions.
