Etienne Kiss-Borlase (Clean Resources Founder) 

Our Story

Clean Resources, founded in 2016 by Etienne Kiss-Borlase, a member of the Swiss Pictet family, has licenced two ground-breaking patent families from the University of Arizona research group, covering building materials and metal extraction.

​Etienne became drawn to these technologies because they embrace the best and brightest of new thinking to deliver sustainable operating solutions for the concrete and mining sectors. These sectors are two of the heaviest polluters globally; each responsible for 8% CO2 emissions & significant un-useable waste.

Etienne's vision is to enhance the social, economic and physical wellbeing of communities and environments globally.

And from this determination, our two global business divisions, Clean Concrete and VINCA Technologies, were born. 

Clean Concrete and VINCA Technologies have their principal development, production & commercialisation centres located in Europe and the USA, while the Clean Resources head office is based in Singapore.
