Sergio Collado


A Chemical Engineer from the Superior School of Engineering of Seville. 

The beginning of his career was linked to polymers in a SBR production facility, after this he participated in the development of the Single Operation Procedures and One Point Lessons instructions, and TPM for packaging lines at KRONES (2008-2012). Between 2012 and 2015 he was dedicated to the agri-food industry in the development of selective liquid-liquid and solid-liquid extraction processes for the recovery of olive industry residues rich in phenols and terpenes. After a brief stint in the construction sector where he led an EU-funded project for the development of resilient bitumen-polyurea pavements to increase urban safety, he joined the Sulayr GS team in 2016-2017 as head of R&D, and since 2018 as technical director of the Sulayr Group.  

He has extensive experience in the development of mechanical and chemical processes for waste recovery and, especially in biphasic or triphasic interactions, such as liquid-liquid extraction or froth-flotation processes.  

He has participated in a patent (as an inventor) to produce food spherifications and in the last years has developed a process for post-consumer tray recycling.
