New Business Developer: Luisa F. Flechas

Last Month, Biorizon co-initiator TNO has welcomed a new business developer in the fields of biomass & energy transition: Luisa F. Flechas. Luisa: " I undoubtedly believe in an energy transition towards a biobased economy limiting fossil-fuel dependency. A transition that requires the implementation of new green and cleaner technologies, in combination with existing ones, that eventually will require retrofitting. The clock is ticking, and innovation is needed to lead the pathway working hand-to-hand with the industry, local and governmental sectors in order to achieve a sustainable future".
