Flow of Life – Inspiring Students Across China
Creating a water optimized future relies on innovation and action now, and in future generations.
The “Flow of Life” project, created by DuPont Water Solutions (DWS) and DuPont Global Community Impact, promotes water science literacy and educates students of all levels. Students learn about the importance of sustainable water management and the impact their actions have on the future.
“Flow of Life” campaign began with college students submitting lectures, experiments and learning games for primary school students. Winning curriculum was selected by DuPont scientists who then traveled to two rural schools to administer the curriculum and donated water purifiers.
DuPont Water Solutions collaborated with over 100 universities across China to hold a Water Education Curriculum Design Competition. College students submitted 134 lectures, experiments and learning games designed to inspire interest in water resource protection and sustainable development among primary school students.
The Flow of Life team selected eight curriculums with the best course content and educational engagement activities. 6000 primary school students across China were introduced to the content.
DuPont also sent volunteers to two rural schools to administer the curriculum themselves. These schools also received donated water purifiers with DuPont TapTec™ reverse osmosis membrane, as well as book bags made of DuPont Tyvek® protective fabric materials.
The Indian government plans to have India’s railways routes fully electrified by 2023 and fully powered by renewable sources by 2030. DuPont Kapton® FCRC wire insulation coupled with DuPont Nomex® slot liner insulation is the standard for high efficiency traction motor insulation systems for demanding, high temperature rail applications,
Photovoltaic panels are expected to convert sunlight into energy for 30 years or more, but solar panels in the field often experience degradation and other failures that shorten their useful life, thereby reducing their ability to produce renewable energy. Tedlar-based backsheets have been demonstrated to significantly extend panel lifespan, with multiple examples of installations generating electricity well beyond 30 years.
In August 2021, Hurricane Ida significantly impacted our Pontchartrain, LA manufacturing facility. Preparations for site operations, employee safety and community recovery began days ahead and continued weeks after.
Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) are used in blowing agents and manufacturing of other building insulation materials. Some HFCs have high global warming potential (GWP) where they end up in the atmosphere and contribute to climate change.

The “Flow of Life” project promotes water science literacy and education across primary and secondary students in China.
Many rivers around the world are now classified as “high stress”. This means that more than 40% of the naturally available water in the basin is removed leading to the risk of water scarcity. Our Zhangjiagang site in China set a sustainability goal to reduce wastewater generation, and address other water usage opportunities.
