Atul Thakrar (figure: DSM)

Royal DSM, the Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, today announces that Atul Thakrar will join the company to head its Bio-based Products & Services unit as from 1 July 2015.

Atul Thakrar will take responsibility for DSM’s involvement in the emerging biorenewables industry, including holding board positions on the Reverdia and POETDSM Advanced Biofuels joint venture boards. Atul will be based in Delft, the Netherlands, and will report to Rob van Leen, Chief Innovation Officer, DSM.

Atul Thakrar is a US citizen, who has worked and lived in multiple countries, including China, India and Belgium. Most recently he was President and CEO of Segetis Inc., an early-stage specialty materials start-up based in the US. Atul is successor to Anton Robek, who successfully led DSM’s platform for products and services in biofuels and bio-based chemicals since 2011. A further announcement regarding Anton Robek’s future role after handing over his responsibilities to Atul will be made in due course.

DSM’s Bio-based Products & Services unit focuses on conversion technologies in the field of renewable biomass to fuels and chemicals, with its main presence in Elgin, IL (USA), São Paulo (Brazil), and Delft (the Netherlands). Central to the unit's activities is the development, demonstration and licensing-out of full technology packages in close cooperation with value chain partners.
