By bringing together the unrivaled track record of DuPont in polymer manufacturing and the technical excellence of Tate & Lyle in milling and fermentation, scientists and engineers from this joint venture have developed a proprietary process that uses corn glucose instead of petroleum-based feedstocks to produce 1,3-propanediol (Bio-PDO™).

Now, the basic materials we use every day can be derived from renewable, farm-grown sources including corn—making the promise of carbon neutrality and independence from petroleum a real possibility.

Our products provide manufacturers of a wide range of industrial and consumer products a biobased alternative that meets—or exceeds—the performance and functionality of petroleum-based glycols.
