Sustainable Solutions for a Growing Population
Industrial biotechnology holds great promise to solve global challenges, offering new potential for meeting the world's demand for food, feed, fuel, materials, and more while reducing our impact on the environment.
At DuPont, we develop industrial biotechnology solutions with a commitment to uncompromised product performance and a desire to obtain the best possible environmental impact. We also maintain a commitment to continuous innovation, ever improving our products and processes, turning what used to be known as "alternative" materials into mainstream ones.
Industrial biotechnology solutions from DuPont address markets such as animal nutrition, food, detergents, textiles, carpets, personal care and biofuels. We’ve already created the first biomaterials with Bio-Propanediol (Bio-PDO®) and Sorona®, and are making important steps forward with our cellulosic ethanol technology.
We believe that the answers to the greatest challenges facing humanity and the planet can be found through inclusive innovation; by working with our partners and combining expertise in biotechnology, chemistry and materials technologies, we can make the biobased economy a reality.
