Solving the plastic problem with biopolymers

Two scientists from Teysha Technologies discuss how organic material can now be turned into a viable plastic substitute In this interview we talk to two scientists from Teysha Technologies, Prof Karen L. Wooley, Chief Technology Officer and Dr Ashlee A. Jahnke, Project Research Scientist about solving the plastic problem with biopolymers, including how organic biomass […]

Could Teysha’s tuneable bioplastic change the packaging industry?

Teysha Technologies has launched a new technology platform capable of producing eco-friendly bioplastics that can be chemically ‘tuned’ to meet specific requirements. Teysha’s head of research, Dr Ashlee Jahnke, explains the implications of the company’s breakthrough.    Unlike common plastics derived from petroleum-based sources, bioplastics are derived from renewable biomass products such as vegetable oils or agricultural […]

Breakthrough in biodegradable plastics

Following years of research, Teysha Technologieshas developed a natural polycarbonate platform that can create fully biodegradable substitutes for existing petroleum-based plastics. The bioplastic, AggiePol, is derived from sustainable feedstocks and can be physically, mechanically and chemically tuned to suit the needs of its intended application. The versatile material could replace the traditional plastic used in the […]
