You re an analytical problem-solver who can create useful and unique solutions in challenging situations. You excel in effective and positive communications, and you continuously bring enthusiasm to workplace tasks. You are highly motivated, focused, and always have an amazing "chemis-tree" with your peers.

As the Environmental Engineer Co-op, you will be working on saving the world (literally) and will be based at our Prince George Pulp Mill. During this eight-month Co-op position, you will be responsible for one or more projects during a particular work term. Your daily activities will see you performing data and statistical analysis, compliance tests for water effluent and air emissions, assisting in the development of the mill's waste minimization program and assisting with the development of optimization programs for effluent treatment systems and other pollution control systems. Helping to minimize waste isn't an easy task, it's "emission" and you re the best person for the job!
