Novasep appoints Udo Steinhauer as fine chemicals market director

Novasep announces it has strengthened its position in the fine chemicals marketplace with the appointment of Udo Steinhauer as fine chemicals market director within the synthesis business unit of Novasep.

Udo Steinhauer has a strong industrial experience gained over 18 years in diverse managerial positions. At Novasep, he will initially focus on four key business areas for Novasep: electronic, cosmetic, flavor and fragrance, and the polymer and biopolymer industry.

“The need for new organic synthesis and purification routes is now critical in the development of the specialty chemicals market,” said Udo Steinhauer. “As an example, the demand for new organic electronic chemicals in ultrapure quality is continuing to increase. Impurities in cosmetic active ingredients then have to be removed in order to avoid side effects. Another example is in the polymer industry. New additives are required to fulfill the demands of performance plastics and polymers obtained from new synthesis or purification routes of bio-based building blocks. I wanted to join Novasep, with its strong expertise and extended capabilities in organic synthesis and advanced purification, because it is an established player in these markets. It is able to offer a cost-effective response to these increasingly demanding manufacturing challenges.”

“Udo’s appointment is the next significant step in formalizing and developing Novasep’s position in these fine chemical markets,” said Michel Blanc, VP sales and business development of Novasep’s Synthesis Business Unit. “These industries require more and more skills in combining smart synthesis with high efficiency purification to develop innovative molecules.”
