The Founder. Pablo Domínguez de María (Gran Canaria, Spain, 1974) studied Pharmacy and Chemistry in Madrid, where he also completed his PhD in Pharmacy, in the area of Biocatalysis (2002). Later on he worked in R&D in industries (2003-2009), acquiring multidisciplinar expertise in catalytic processes,  White Biotechnology, and topics dealing with bio-based society and biomass utilization. He joined then the Institute of Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry (ITMC) of the RWTH Aachen University (Germany), to set up a group with emphasis on  biotransformations, organocatalysis, lignocellulose-processing and biofuels (2009-2014). In 2015 he successfully defended his Habilitation Thesis at the RWTH Aachen (Title: "Bio-based catalysis for petroleum-free biorefineries and fine chemicals"). Since 2014 he is the Founder and CEO of Sustainable Momentum, SL.
