DuPont Industrial Biosciences

DuPont Industrial Biosciences develops customer-driven solutions.

DuPont Industrial Biosciences is unlike any other business in the biotech industry—or even in DuPont. Our bio-based materials employ renewable plant sources to reduce the use of petroleum-based materials while improving performance at the same time. We work with nature to create transformational new products, new businesses and even new industries that make the world better for us all to share.

With our combined talents in biotechnology, chemistry and materials technologies, we can make the bio-based economy a reality. The business’ Bioactives, Biomaterials and Advanced Biofuels segments 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 we are taking an exciting new step forward with our cellulosic ethanol technology. We also have a special role to play within DuPont as incubators and entrepreneurs for growth linking together agriculture, nutrition and advanced materials.
