Sustainable biochemicals company Circa Group has named Philipp Morgenthaler as Global Head of Manufacturing. He has extensive experience in the development of greenfield factories and industrial-scale production facilities. He brings global manufacturing expertise and networks from an international career spanning almost 20 years, leading teams across Europe, USA, China and Brazil.
Following a successful IPO of the Circa Group AS, Oslo/Norway, in March 2021, this new role leads the company’s growth plans to achieve 80,000-tons capacity by 2030. Morgenthaler will also support Circa’s delivery of the ReSolute plant, located in France, which will produce the versatile platform biomolecule Levoglucosenone, from which the non-toxic, bio-based solvent Cyrene is derived.
