Bioenergy Life Science (BLS) has announced the death of its President Thomas VonderBrink away after a lengthy illness.

“Tom was very passionate about his work and was a great storyteller, engaging everyone within hearing distance. He shared his knowledge and insights with great detail and liveliness, whether it was about Bioenergy Ribose or a current event,” said Penny Portner, BLS Director of Marketing.

In the industry, Tom became synonymous with ribose, said Bioenergy, and his ‘enthusiasm for business was infectious with customers and employees’.

“Tom was brought on to grow the ribose business,” said BLS Chairman and CEO Leo Zhang. “He was able to take it from a great compound with good research to a multi-million dollar business and a diversified portfolio. He successfully managed the sale and transition of Bioenergy Life Science to the new ownership with Chengzhi Life Science.”
