Multi-brand company ENVIEM (TinQ, Gulf and Transnational Blenders), exists of several divisions in the fuel and energy industry. The company sells fuels and produces lubricants, but also collects and processes (oil) waste, sells (renewable) energy and creates new energy concepts. These activities seem contradictory: are you not biting the hand that feeds you? CFO Carlo Binken has a clear vision of the future of the family-owned business.
