Carbios, a pioneer in the development and industrialization of biological technologies for reinventing the life cycle of plastics and textiles, has strengthened its leadership team with the appointment of Martine Brisset as Senior Vice President (SVP) as of 1st January 2023.
What do the appointees bring to Carbios?
Martine Brisset will manage the Biodegradation Division and supervise the Human Resources, Legal, Regulatory, Project Management, Quality Health and Safety departments. Martine Brisset joins the Group’s Executive Committee, as does Delphine Denoizé, who remains Innovation Programs Funding, Regulation and LCA Director with an expanding team.
Martine Brisset, Senior Vice President of Carbios : “After having supervised the production of thousands of tons of plastic destined for the packaging sector, I am now focused on reducing plastic pollution with our biodegradation and biorecycling solutions. I’m very excited to take on this exciting challenge, one that makes sense for future generations and for industry.”
Martine has over 30 years of General Management experience in major international groups within the plastic and paper packaging industry, most notably at Amcor, Huhtamaki, Linpac and Klockner Pentaplast. Since 2021, she has held the position of GM of Carbiolice in order to integrate this high-potential subsidiary dedicated to biodegradation within the Carbios Group.
In her new position as SVP of Carbios, her main mission will be to successfully deploy the biodegradation tech, facilitate the international expansion of Carbios’ activities, organise the recruitment and training of the Group’s employees. With numerous recruitments planned throughout the company in 2023, building Carbios’ attractivity will be a strategic topic.
Delphine Denoizé, Innovation Programs Funding, Regulation and LCA Director commented: “What drives me is the satisfaction of seeing a project through, from concept to reality.”
“At Carbios, all our projects have a positive impact on the environment, and it’s rising to this challenge that makes me passionate about my work. By joining the Executive Committee, I will support these projects even more enthusiastically, in terms of their structuring and funding, but also in terms of their regulatory compliance and environmental performance.”
After several years working in innovation within the agricultural industry, it was during her time at Céréales Vallées cluster that Delphine Denoizé discovered and assisted in the creation of Carbios. She joined the company in 2016 and was one of its first 20 employees.
Initially in charge of Innovation Funding and Regulation, then Project Management for PET biorecycling, she now oversees all the Group’s projects. Her responsibilities include French and European public funding for innovation, regulatory compliance of processes and products, and assessment of their environmental impact through tools like Life Cycle Assessment.
