Robert Suchopa, Unipetrol

Research and Development Worker - Project Manager

As the manager of research and development projects for chemical recycling technologies, he is responsible for coordinating research and development activities in this area. Its scope lies across two complementary activities – both in the field of research and development itself, where it plays a leading role in a large research and development project, which aims to develop a complete technological chain of chemical recycling of waste plastics through pyrolysis, from waste plastics to recycled products, as well as in the field of commercial cooperation with entities that operate this type of technology. The combination of education in the field of oil processing and subsequent production of fuels and petrochemicals (he holds an engineering degree from the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague) with experience in managing development projects in the automotive sector gives him all the necessary prerequisites to succeed in the roles he holds and thus help to apply chemical recycling technology in the Czech Republic more widely.
