Taking Sustainability Personally

By Simon Johns - Jun 10, 2021

Lubes’n’Greases talked to Biosynthetic Technologies‘ CEO Mark Miller about the sustainability of his company, which produces oils from organic fatty acids, the early days of the sustainable lubricants movement and what his motivation was for starting the company in the first place.

Mark Miller: “Personally, it was the birth of my first-born son. When I was at Lubrizol, selling harsh chemicals to the petroleum industry – and doing quite well – I saw this little kid and I said to myself, “There’s got to be a better way.” And within a few years, I’d spun off and started my first company, which was Terresolve Technologies, that made vegetable-based lubricants. It’s always been a huge passion of mine on a personal level to be more sustainable and more environmentally acceptable.”
