Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Bio-based 1,3 propanediol (PDO) is a renewable product that meets—and often exceeds—the performance of petroleum-based ingredients.
  • The family of renewable products based on our Bio-PDO™ process includes Susterra® propanediol for industrial applications such as deicing fluids and anti-freeze, and Zemea® propanediol for consumer applications such as cosmetics and personal care.
  • A biobased product is a commercial or industrial product other than food or feed that is made from biologically-based materials, such as plant or animal products, and that traditionally has been made from other kinds of materials. This includes products like chemicals that are plant-based rather than petroleum-based, or like clothing made from corn or hemp. Biobased products are sometimes referred to as “green” products.
  • 1,3-Propanediol (PDO)
    DuPont's joint venture, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, LLC, announced in May 2010 that it is
    expanding production of bio-based 1,3 propanediol (Bio-PDO™) by 35% at its Loudon, Tennessee,
    facility (expected completion by 2Q/2011).
  • DuPont's current bio-PDO capacity is around 45,000 t/a. The expansion is being driven by strong demand. Their corn-based bio-PDO is used as an ingredient ranging from cosmetics and personal care formulations to fluids and polymers including DuPont's Sorona® renewably sourced polymer.
  • 1,3-propanediol (PDO), which is manufactured either by a chemical process using petroleum feedstock or by a fermentation (bio-based) process using corn sugar.
