Moolenaar, whose experience includes more than 30 years in various marketing, business development and technical roles in the specialty additives and materials industries, joins Emerald from Eastman Chemical Company, where he most recently served as manager, marketing and strategy, EMEA. Previously, he also held positions with Linde Gas, Pfizer and Dow. He obtained an M.S. in chemical engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, Netherlands.

Effective and intuitive leader

"Huub has established himself as an effective and intuitive leader with the skillset and insight to implement successful strategies for growth. I feel he will be an important asset in helping us to meet our continued goals for expansion in the region,” said Hans-Dick Terhenne, Business Director, "K-Flex” EMEA. "The group has made a number of recent major investments to expand the international reach of the value-added platform, both in the EMEA region and globally. Most recently, we announced a multi-million-dollar investment in a new benzoic acid finishing process, which will greatly support our additives as downstream products.”

REACH-compliant platform

"K-Flex” benzoate technology has a proven track record of more than three decades for delivering performance, providing a highly effective alternative that eliminates the health and environmental concerns of increasingly regulated phthalate plasticizers and high-VOC coalescents. The REACH-compliant platform provides a range of low-VOC, non-phthalate, non-SVHC products, including those with certain clearances for use in food-contact applications. In recent years, the company has focused on product innovation to deliver benefits to an expanding range of adhesives, sealants, caulks, paints, coatings, graphic arts and plastisol and vinyl applications.
