"I first heard about CRI by surfing the web, looking for sustainable fuel companies. I needed a company where I could do my masters thesis. What I kikes about the internship is that I learned a lot about methanol economy, and how to evaluate projects in different countries around the world. I also learned how to make an economic analysis of a methanol plant, and hoe to calculate a carbon footprint of it. I would highly recommend the internship to other potential interns, since I see it as a great opportunity of entering the business world, and at the same time to get to know a beautiful country as Iceland."

"Over the internship, my knowledge of the methanol industry, the industrial gasses industry, and the industrial chemical industry, has increased by leaps and bounds. I am grateful to CRI for the industrial learning experience. Overall, my primary takeaways from this summer are the importance of consistent and honest communication with my supervisor, the interconnectedness of the business mentality with grandiose desire for environmentally sustainable fuel, and a personal improvement in confidence in presentations to supervisors. I enjoyed the laid-back yet focused atmosphere of the office and the diversity of the languages spoken between employees and interns alike. This was a fantastic summer at CRI in Iceland and I am glad to have had the experience of working at Carbon Recycling International!"

“One of the main reasons I chose to join Carbon Recycling International (CRI) for the summer was the chance to be a part of a company playing a role in combating the increasing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. My contributions were aimed at increasing the efficiency of their novel emissions-to-liquid (ETL) process. I would highly recommend this internship for those who have a passion for designing and analyzing sustainable energy systems, and a desire to explore a beautiful country with a unique spirit. Thank you for the great summer at CRI."

"I accepted an internship position at CRI because it presented itself as a quality opportunity to see how a start-up renewable energy company runs both technically and within the energy market. It also had non-professional perks with the European social life and the chance to extensively explore the beautiful, unique landscape that is Iceland. Socially, CRI provided excellent sponsored trips in the form of white-water rafting and mountain biking that fit very nicely with my athletic lifestyle and allowed me to interact informally with a few employees outside of the office. Intern-planned journeys across the island also allowed for further bonding time amongst the interns and experiences that I will never forget."
Chad Piersma Intern 2014
„This summer internship changed my life. Literally. In addition to the standard "learned a lot", "really grew as a person" (the life-skills aspect of internships was particularly emphasized here at CRI), and "traveling abroad to Iceland for the summer changed my perspective", I really nailed down my academic and career plans as a result of putting my academics to use in a work setting. This involved significant changes to my academic trajectory – I want to do what my project was about as a career!"
Tristan Applegate Intern 2014
"I started my internship at CRI after completing the third year of my Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering at McGill University in Montreal. When I received the job offer, I did not know exactly what to expect. I was interested in CRI's green emissions-to-fuel process and I had heard that the internship was very structured towards skills development. For these reasons, I jumped at the offer, not realizing that it would surpass my expectations of how productive and valuable my experience would be."
