  • Fred KlaessigManagerPennsylvania Bio Nano Systems, LLC

    Fred Klaessig is currently with Pennsylvania Bio Nano Systems, a consulting firm. Once the Technical Director for Aerosil & Silanes and later the Business Director for the Aerosil product line at Evonik Degussa Corp., his responsibilities included commercial overview, customer support, new product introduction and regulatory interactions (EPA & FDA).

    The great interest in nanotechnology raised safety and chemical registration concerns about inorganic fillers such as AEROSIL® fumed silica, which in turn led to his on-going interest in standardization & informatics (ASTM E56, ISOTC-229)that also includes stakeholder involvement at the University of California's Center for the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology and being an Advisory Board member at NanoFASE.

    Fred received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Prior industrial experience included R&D at Betz Laboratories, now a division of GE Water Services, and QC at Bio-Rad Laboratories.
