Synova, a technology company focused on production of high value chemicals such as olefins and BTX from waste, announced today the appointment of Jörg Krüger as Chief Executive Officer.
As CEO of Synova Jörg Krüger will play a key role in Synova’s transition from demonstrating the technology at industrial scale to commercial roll out of the technology, an area where he brings extensive expertise. Jörg will be based in Maassluis where he will lead the planning, execution and evaluation of the Synova strategy.
Synova’s technology was invented by the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). Able to process municipal solid waste, including mixed plastic waste, the technology also features a ‘best in class’ cleanup train. It removes 99.9% of unwanted tars and uses the energy value to create a highly efficient process with a better CO2 footprint, that serves numerous applications, including olefins (the building blocks for new plastics), BTX, RNG and electricity.
