Founder & Director of Technology
David Abecassis is an interdisciplinary scientist who earned a degree in natural sciences and a bachelors degree in biological chemistry from the University of Toulouse France. He then went on to complete a Joint Master degree from Rutgers University where he studied biodegradation with Richard Bartha at Cook College. Upon graduation he worked in diversified polymer consulting which included a variety of polymer driven applications, everything from diapers to packaging to aerospace composites. He spent over 10 years in collaborative research in the field of thermoplastic nano-composites with Stony Brook University and Brooklyn Polytechnic Faculty, which included novel flame retardant packages, and eventually the worlds first mass produceable organoclay.
David Abecassis is a pioneer in adapting his cutting edge knowledge to biodegradable materials and sustainable plastics. As Chief Science Officer of Titan Bioplastics, David heads up R&D as well as IP efforts and implementation.
