Paul Konst

Functie:
Clustermanager

Paul is passionate about technology development that facilitates the creation of new value chains in the pursuit of a sustainable industry, and thereby a sustainable society. One of Paul’s main responsibilities as programme manager is setting out the research and business strategy of the industrial sugar-based pathways towards furanic and bio-aromatics building blocks (Sugar Horizon) within Shared Research Centre Biorizon. Paul has an extensive background in bioprocess engineering and obtained his PhD degree at Wageningen University, the Netherlands, on the topic of thermo- and biochemical conversion of residual biomass into bulk chemicals.

Thanks partly to Paul’s insights and foresight, Biorizon is well on its way to reaching its goal of enabling bio-aromatics to be produced commercially by 2025. Furthermore, TNO is continuing to unlock the potential of its platform technologies through the development of furanic (for applications such as surfactant and resins) and next-generation aromatic building blocks (such as bio-phenol and bio-aniline).
