DuPont Biomaterials

DuPont™ Biomaterials is a leader in sustainable materials innovation, bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace, focused on partnerships with forward-thinkers to promote the new bioeconomy. We’re dedicated to finding ways to enhance the quality of life through high-performance materials while progressively reducing the environmental impacts of industry. Our ultimate goal is to be an important part of the circular economy, one in which products are made to be made again, where the system is powered by renewable energy, and where the process itself is responsible and restorative.

We have just begun to explore the possibilities through our plant-based DuPont Sorona® fabric offerings for the carpet and apparel as well as through our joint venture with Tate & Lyle. DuPont Tate & Lyle offers 100% bio-based Zemea® and Susterra® propanediol to various markets from cosmetics and personal care to footwear and gear. The benefit for our environment is substantial.
