Wiek Kleijne

Marketing Manager, Home and Personal Care for EMEA, Performance Formulations


Wiek Kleijne has worked for Nouryon and prior AkzoNobel for over 8 years and has been active in different sales, marketing and business development roles. He started in the coatings business for which he was based in Singapore and then joined the chemicals business. He has been the marketing manager for Home and Personal Care for the EMEA region for the last two years. Before Nouryon and AkzoNobel, Wiek worked for four years in the energy industry as a strategy consultant.

Nouryon is a key supplier of DME (Dimethyl Ether) as an aerosol and is actively innovating to bring sustainable solutions to the market. Nouryon has developed a green DME which is based on a bio-based methanol source and this way we are able to move away from fossil sources which are traditionally used in aerosols. Our solution follows a Mass Balance approach with certification in place which allows customers to rely on the bio-based claim and formulate more sustainable aerosol products. In addition, Nouryon is also a member of a R&D partnership with amongst others research institute TNO and other industry players to develop a future DME from recycled carbon, green hydrogen renewable energy. This synthetic DME would be a true circular solution.
