Here, we talk to two scientists from Teysha Technologies: Professor Karen L. Wooley, the inventor and […]

UK start-up claims bioplastics breakthrough

Teysha Technologies Ltd, a London-based bioplastics startup, claims to have developed a breakthrough technology to develop organic-based plastic substitute. In a statement to PNE, the company said its “plug-and-play” process take monomers and co-monomers from bio-based feedstock, such as starches and agricultural waste, to produce biopolymers that can be used in a large variety of […]
