Leadership Team

Resinate Materials Group was founded in 2007 by a small group of investors who were committed to finding a Circular Economy approach to chemicals. Through their unique experiences in the finance, chemical, and energy sectors, they understood the challenges and consequences of developing petroleum-based products. Their vision was to create a company with novel technologies, which could overcome these challenges by exploring the potential of harvesting and upcycling spent petroleum molecules destined for landfills. With a talented team of chemical industry veterans, Resinate is executing that vision.
