Plastic cups – it is pretty obvious that they’re bad for the environment. However, did you know how bad Paper cups are? 2.5 billion a year are used in the UK and only one in 400 cups can be recycled.
Often, it’s down to the plastic lining in paper cups that stops them from falling apart when liquid is poured in. So, imagine a company designed a paper cup made with biodegradable material that can be recycled in your standard paper recycling up to 7 times.
But the bigger challenge? Working out how to adapt your manufacturing facility to be compatible with those new cups without stopping production.
Maybe it will need new machinery. Maybe adaptation to machinery or even an entirely new production route.
But what it will definitely need is a Process Technician!
The process technician provides a key link between R&D and Manufacturing, looking at new developments and then ensuring they are tested and optimised into a live manufacturing facility.
You’ll take a lead role in line trials and validation activities for new and current products and will also work with continuous improvement and engineering teams in problem resolution.
Experience with Six Sigma would be a huge benefit and experience working between R&D and Engineering functions would also be very beneficial.
Practical experience within a Plant/Factory environment is key although we are open to seeing those from any backgrounds be it Energy, Food, Water, Cosmetics or others.
