Umincorp is established in 2012 to develop and market its new, unique, and patented Magnetic Density Separation (MDS) technology. The idea was born in 2005 under the lead of Professor Peter Rem at the Delft University of Technology.
Umincorp holds patents on all crucial aspects of MDS technology. Umincorp performs continuous R&D to optimize the processes and improve recycled polymer engineering.
Jelle Sernee is Umincorp’s hands-on all-around project catalyst. He holds a masters’ degree from the University of Delft in resource and recycling engineering. He has been the main driving force behind the construction of Plastic Recycling Amsterdam.
Jaap Vandehoek is Umincorp’s general manager. Educated in resource engineering and recycling metallurgy, Jaap has engaged successfully in process engineering and business development in the waste recycling and secondary metal industry.
In 2008, Jaap and Jelle founded Inashco (now Blue Phoenix Group). Under their management, the company, with a disruptive technology for bottom ash recycling, grew from laboratory scale to a main market player.
