Biotechnology holds a great deal of promise to enhance our lives and planet. With a world population expected to reach nearly nine billion by 2050, biotechnology offers new potential for meeting the world's demand for food, feed, fuel and materials while reducing our footprint on the planet.
DuPont is putting science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life everywhere.
We believe the broad field of biotechnology presents important opportunities that should be explored and developed to identify those safe and commercially viable applications that bring significant benefits to society. These opportunities arise in areas including food, energy generation, protection of life, materials, polymers, sensors and electronics. Benefits may include lower cost, higher quality products and reduced reliance on fossil fuels along with other environmental benefits.
