During my time at Sirius International, I learned many things. For example a new perspective on sustainability and how it is to be part of an innovative small team.
In my internship research I was looking for sustainable alternatives to palm kernel oil in the production of surfactants. Part of these alternatives where sought at companies with waste streams that were suitable to replace palmkernel oil.
Because of my freedom at Sirius International, I got to know many contact persons and a lot of companies. Therefore external visits were easy to arrange. I also had the opportunity to meet some customers of Sirius International whose ideas have been included in my research.
I hope that Sirius continues to come up with new sustainable and innovative solutions in the future. Altogether a nice and educational internship!
