Intern / Master Thesis Worker for CO2 Treatment in Air Purification and Ventilation

Student, Internship, Rest of Sweden
Monthly salary:


We develop ventilation technology inspired by the one deployed on the International Space Station (ISS) to be installed in buildings. To do so, we have developed a smart cleaning module that can be attached to HVAC systems to clean the air from harmful volatile gases (VOCs). However, CO2 is generated as a by-product from the filtration process, and we aspire to treat and perhaps sell that CO2 to other third parties.

The role

You will be working on a cleaning module that can be attached to ventilation systems to identify a way of treating the CO2, which is a by-product of the innovative filtration process. Therefore, you will be investigating techniques to either treat the CO2 or convert it into something else (less harmful) or harnessing it as a resource for other products (such as a fertilizer), etc. This solution is ought to be sustainable, cost-effective and economic to design, manufacture, maintain and sell. In space, and for astronauts to go deeper distances, special filters are used for CO2 treatment. However, these filters might be expensive to deploy for air filtration in commercial buildings. 

We have already designed and manufactured our prototype of the cleaning module that removes VOCs (harmful gases in the air). You will be responsible for identifying several treatment techniques, developing one of these techniques further via utilizing materials knowledge, 2D/3D sketching and some simulation skills to identify how cost-effective the technique is. You are expected to contact potential suppliers and partners who would help us deploy your technique if proven to be feasible.

You will be working closely with our product developers and starting from the head office in Västerås, Sweden. Your goal is to develop this innovative technique and contribute to the products’ and the company’s future success.


Your skills and Profile

We expect our applicants to have a background in materials science, engineering physics, chemical engineering or similar with a distinguished academic performance. It is an advantage if you have experience in ventilation or energy-saving projects. We prefer that you are flexible and ready to take on a broad role.

Your colleagues are all very determined and ambitious, so you are energetic and motivated. Even if the role involves product development, we want to emphasise that it is important that you are a team player who adds energy to the team.

We put great focus on how you are as a person and what you want to achieve with us. You should have the ability to persuade and a habit of being able to explain complex things in an understandable way.

Some additional requirements:

  • Positive, humble, self-motivated and outgoing
  • A habit of 2D/3D sketching
  • Fluency in Swedish is a plus
