Internship opportunity: Redesign of an urban biofiltration system.

Retention and reuse of stormwater in urban areas are key concepts for climate proof cities. Field Factors develops solutions to store stormwater surpluses locally for later use, such as irrigation of sport fields and parks, replenishment of groundwater or reduction of heat stress. Our Bluebloqs biofiltration system enables water quality in such a decentralised water system and has been designed as a modular, turnkey solution.

The first Bluebloqs biofiltration system has been build near the Sparta stadium in Rotterdam in June 2018. After half a year of operation, we have identified factors for optimisation of the system in order to upscale for mass production. We would like to work together with you on this challenge.

Key activities:

  • Optimising the system to function in public space, taking into account water metrics such as flow control, use and interaction, environmental influences, maintenance, etc. 

  • Redesign the structural components of the system.

  • Review production techniques and materials for upscaling to mass production.

You:

  • are an IO/IPO student;

  • have affinity with design for sustainable cities, infrastructure and public space;

  • have a technical approach, a hands-on mentality and experience with rapid prototyping;

  • are fluent in English and /or Dutch;

  • are available at least 4 days per week, starting from March 2019.

What we offer you:

We are a multidisciplinary team of water and product engineers. At Field Factors, you will work in an open, creative and professional context, with room for you to take responsibilities and gain experience in a R&D project. We offer internship allowance. 

Looks like a nice challenge? We would like to hear from you!

Msc Thesis: Urban Waterbuffer in Spain

Screen Shot 2018-06-20 at 10.57.50.png

Treatment, storage & reuse of stormwater in urban areas.

Retention and reuse of stormwater in urban areas are key concepts for climate proof cities. The Urban Waterbuffer (UWB) effectively targets sand aquifers to store stormwater surpluses using wells, for later recovery and use in urban areas. It combines a compact biofiltration system for pre-treatment, and an infiltration / recovery system.

A technical feasibility study will be conducted to implement this technology in Valladolid, Spain, with focus on water quality requirements and geo-hydrological conditions.

Research activities:

  • Characterisation of the raw water and infiltration water quality by field work, data collection and lab analyses.

  • Construction of biofilter test in column setup.

  • Interpretation of chemical water quality using modelling, preparation and analysis of representative chemical compositions.

You:

  • are a student, or just finished studies and have at least a bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering, Water Technology or similar;

  • have affinity with storm water quality and quantity management;

  • have technical skills and a hands-on mentality to work on experimental research;

  • are fluent in English and /or Dutch;

  • are available at least 4 days per week, for a minimum of 4 months, starting from February 2019.

What we offer you:

We are a small - but growing, multidisciplinary team. We offer you the opportunity to work on an exciting field research project in Spain and on-site experience in integrated water management. At Field Factors, you will work in an open, creative and professional context, with room for you to take responsibilities and gain experience in a R&D project. We offer internship allowance.

Does this look like a nice challenge? We would like to hear from you!
