DuPont Tate & Lyle Joint Venture Opens $100M Bio-PDO Facility

  • DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, an equally owned joint venture of DuPont and Tate & Lyle, opened a Loudon, TN-based facility that produces 1,3-propanediol (Bio-PDO™) from renewable resources, in this case, corn sugar.

    Company officials say this is the first facility in the world to manufacture this new bio-based product.

    Bio-PDO is a biodegradable ingredient that can be used in cosmetics, liquid detergents, and industrial applications such as anti-freeze and many other applications that currently use glycols. It can also be used as a monomer to produce unsaturated polyester resins as well as other specialty polymers such as DuPont Sorona® and the latest renewably sourced polymer, DuPont Cerenol™, according to DuPont officials.
