Stein Dietrichson has been working with recycling of thermoplastics since early 1980 and with bio fiber reinforced polymers since 1998. He holds several patents and has been leading large development projects, several involving recycled polymers and biofiber reinforced polyolefins.
Steingraduated as a plastics engineer from TGM in Vienna in 1973 with additional education in sales and marketing in 1975. He has wide experience from sales, marketing and technical service in the polymer area. He has also been in production and marketing of polymer related industry for the building industry, road safety and other areas in German, English and Norwegian multinational companies.
In 1998 Stein founded Re-Turn AS to develop and produce thermoplastic bio-composites, which slowly also is moving into Europe and is started up in Norway in 2022 by Norske Skog Saugbrugs. This development has been supported since 2016 by NP&PT (previously Re-Organic AS) and based on the knowledge from 24 years’ experience built up in Re-Turn AS. NP&PT continued this technology development from 2016 combined with recycled thermoplastic developments.
Re-Turn has continued and is steadily growing expertise and capacity in specialized epoxy formulations, with a lot of experience with nano modification of polymers. During the 20 last years a modern and well-equipped research and test lab. Has been built, also assisting NP&PT in quality assure and improve the recycled thermoplastics offered to the Scandinavian market.
