Jeremy DeBenedictis


Jeremy has been leading the development, operation, and commercialization of Alterra’s Plastics Circularity technology since 2011 when he joined a very small team working out of an entrepreneurial garage in Akron, OH, USA. He is a co-inventor of the technology with four published patents and numerous trade secrets. Previously, he spent 12 years at GE leading manufacturing plants within its Healthcare and Lighting divisions. His passion is inspiring and mentoring future leaders to carry on the responsibility of creating a cleaner planet for future generations by keeping discarded plastic in the economy and out of the environment, thus replacing virgin, fossil-derived resources. Jeremy earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Dayton and an MBA in Banking & Finance from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. He is a GE certified Six Sigma Black Belt and Lean Mfg. Expert.
