We are looking for Chief Financial Officer

We want to strengthen our team with a highly experienced and proficient Chief Financial Officer.

Do you see our future?

Our society and the way we live our lives must gradually change. During the next 30 years we have to get much better at sequestering CO2 and reducing greenhouse gas emissions than what we are at recovering and using fossil fuels.

We see opportunities in enabling high carbon-emission industries to decarbonize their activities for a sustainable future. The production and use of biochar/biocarbon are recognized as one of the most cost-efficient ways for global decarbonization. The right use of biochar/biocarbon seems to have endless applications, from soil conditioner and animal feed additive, to industrial processes and products, and energy storage.

This is where we at WAI Environmental Solutions AS see our future.

We bring innovative solutions to the market that produce biochar/biocarbon and renewable energy from forest residues, sawmill by-products, sludge, and agricultural wastes. We develop decarbonization projects in Europe and turn dilemmas into opportunities by establishing Design, Build, Own and Operate models and sustainable business agreements. Our values are in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of United Nations. We aim to improve the standards in the high carbon emission industries, pushing boundaries of what is possible to replace fossil fuels.

Do you see your future?

Our culture is set around being at the forefront of the state-of-the-art solutions, creating new knowledge and keeping our quality standards above the sector’s average, in another word, challenging the status quo.
