Hello! This is a very interesting and specific job. According to careerplanner.com, here is what I found about this role: Biofuels processing technicians do a wide variety of tasks, from blending chemicals to operating industrial equipment to testing fuel quality. More specifically, they Calculate, measure, load, mix, and process refined feedstock with additives in fermentation or reaction process vessels and monitor production process. Perform, and keep records of, plant maintenance, repairs, and safety inspections.

The median salary for people in this role can range from 50-70K according to isustainableearth.com.

It appears this is a good field to go into however please look at any risks or safety hazards associated with such a position.

Great question!

Best wishes on your future endeavours!

I have a degree in chemical process technology and while we do not process biofuels, we process many different types of chemicals. Each Process Tech job will be different depending on the needs of that "block" or location. Here we have two different types of PTechs. One is an outside operator who does the activities in the field like change filters, add drums of chemicals, turn manual valves, verify equipment in the field is working, tag out equipment for maintenance, etc. The second kind of operator runs the automated system on the computers. He/She is called an inside operator. The inside and outside P.Technicians work together to run the equipment and make product. Then there is a technical advisor who is an experienced inside and outside tech who helps to train and to assist/advise the newer technicians in the role. This job can be very exhausting due to working conditions but I think it is very rewarding and down right fun sometimes. Plus the schedule can be really nice with up to 7 days off in a row!
