Phillipe Blonda will be in charge of business development and new technology partnerships for Keiryo. He will use his deep knowledge of the PET packaging supply chain to build technology partnerships and lay the groundwork of the commercial roll out of the Keiryo Packaging Technology.
Prior to joining Keiryo Philippe held leadership positions in Marketing and Business Development for PET preform and bottle manufacturers. He holds a degree in Business management from the Catholic University of Leuven (KUL)
‘I have followed Keiryo’s technology development since a while and believe it provides a significant breakthrough in addressing sustainability and cost challenges faced by the PET packaging supply chain. It is a tremendous opportunity to contribute to the roll out of this scalable and cost efficient technology’ says Philippe.
‘It is great to have someone with the track record of Philippe on board.’ says Johan Robbrecht, Managing Partner of Keiryo Packaging Technologies. ‘His wealth of experience and contacts in the industry have already demonstrated their value for Keiryo. Philippe knows the industry very well and is ideally equipped develop technological and commercial partnerships.’
Keiryo Packaging Technologies is developing a patented polymer processing technology which introduces well-designed mechanical energy into the polymer melt during its processing. Consequently, the molecular organization of the polymer melt is altered with the creation of flow-enhanced morphological structures which have a beneficial impact on the end performances of the polymer article being produced. This enables light weighting, better barrier performance and improved mixing of virgin and recycled material. In doing so the Keiryo Packaging Technology improves the environmental sustainability of polymer-based packaging.
Keiryo Packaging Technologies is incorporated in Luxemburg and headquartered at 488 route de Longwy, Luxemburg.

The Keiryo Packaging technology modifies the morphological structure and performance of polymers during the injection process.
The partnership will lead to the commercialization of a new PET injection stretch Blow moulding process for PET bottles that reduces the manufacturing cost and improves the environmental performance of the bottle.
Chemical engineer Marina Najm joins Keiryo’s development team. She will take a leading role in incorporating data analysis, image analysis and modeling in the KP Testing and Modeling Loop. This proprietary flow modeling and analysis protocol is key to building Keiryo 3D printed inserts’ architecture and design.
