Marc den Hartog has been Managing Director Commercial Waste of Renewi Netherlands since 1 April 2021.
Before Renewi, Den Hartog worked at biotech group Corbion. Here he held several management positions. He also spent four years as a director of Total Corbion PLA, a joint venture between oil group Total and Corbion that produces biodegradable polymers (PLA). Before that, he held senior positions at CSM, at Loders Croklaan, IOI Group, and Unilever.
Turning waste into new materials is Den Hartog's central mission at Renewi. In the coming years, Den Hartog intends to focus on innovations that will realise this ambition faster. In doing so, Renewi will become a producer of circular materials: from waste to product. Specifically, Den Hartog wants to increase the percentage of recycled waste. He wants to do this through more high-quality source separation, more collaborations with innovative parties and finding more sales markets for recycled material streams. Furthermore, Den Hartog sees a missionary role for himself and Renewi to raise consumer awareness about waste.
