PeelPioneers
About me:

Sytze has a background in chemistry and is passionate about acting, making the perfect risotto and enjoys a good bike ride (preferably down hill on a nice sunny day, too bad I live in the Netherlands). He has founded PeelPioneers, a bio refinery for citrus peel and the only one of its kind in Europe. Citrus peel -that would otherwise be incinerated - is turned into valuable resources (fragrance, fibre and pectin) that can be used in local and biobased products. If ever you manage to lay your hand on a couple of tons of peel, please let him know!
