Duncan Clark Teysha Technologies
The Teysha Technologies platform invention provides the design of synthetic strategies for the development of polymer materials that have new and novel combinations of strength, density and toughness. Each of these polymer materials comes from renewable sources and undergoes hydrolytic breakdown, which creates by-products that are biologically beneficial.
Rather than offering a single polymer system, Teysha Technologies offers a solution to plastic pollution through its polymer platform. This platform is a system that allows a variety of modified natural product monomers and thiol co-monomers to be used.
Additionally, various other solvents and additives can be used to further modify and expand the final polymer network, which means that a greater variety of sustainable plastic products can be created. Teysha Technologies has created sustainable plastics that are available in a variety of forms, strengths and textures, and its products can be directly applied to current plant machinery with very low capital costs.
Teysha Technologies was created as a result of more than 10 years of research and problem solving in the fields of ocean plastics, plastics pollution and bioplastics. The team at Teysha Technologies includes Professor Karen Wooley as Inventor and Chief Technology Officer; Dr Clive Rankin as Chairman; Matthew Stone as Managing Director; Dr Steve Taylor as Technology Development Director; Dr Ashlee Jahnke as Head of Research and Development; and Duncan Clark, Teysha Technologies’ Head of Business Operations.
