Meet Katariina and Klaus, chemical industrialisation heavyweights.
Our new chemical engineers bring decades of industrialisation experience

Our team of Oceansavers is growing stronger! We are thrilled to welcome our new colleagues Katariina Tumelius and Klaus Muuronen, chemical engineers who will accelerate the industrialisation of our activities.

Katariina and Klaus have impressive industrial backgrounds from Neste, the world's leading supplier of renewable diesel, and Valio, the largest dairy company in Finland, respectively. They bring experience in building and designing industrial processes and carrying out the technology transfer from laboratory to pilot.

Hitting the market next year

We have successfully developed our biorefinery process in the laboratory and we are moving on to piloting, with Katariina and Klaus at the helm. In order to make piloting less dependent on investment, we are conducting this in close collaboration with Chempolis, a biorefining technology firm. Together with our partners, we are bringing our first co-branded products to market next year.

With their impressive talents, Katariina and Klaus will be a great support to the commercialisation of our products. We are on fire!
