Speaker Spotlight: Rocco Burgo

Rocco is currently the Chief Scientist for INOLEX where he has served for over thirty-five years.  During this period, he has held positions in Analytical Sciences, Process Development (engineering scale-up) and Product Development (synthesis and applications).  His career focus has been the research, development and commercialization of new products serving the polyester polyol polymer, urethane polymer, synthetic ester lubricant, and personal care industries.  He is the principle or co-author of over thirty patents and applications. Rocco feels that his greatest strength is interacting with customers to understand a need, then marrying that need with an INOLEX solution, a product concept that can be successfully commercialized in a reasonable period of time.

Rocco obtained his degree in Chemistry from Rowan University, and completed post-graduate work in Chemical Engineering at Drexel University.   His hobby is music as a drummer with particular interest in 1970’s era progressive rock and jazz fusion.

Rocco will be speaking on October 25th at our annual Educational Seminar.  Join us at Assumption College to hear his presentation:  “Natural Preservative Options”.  Click here for the full list of speakers.  You can register on-site or online using PayPal.
