“Great inventions came from our labs, including the discovery of nylon, DuPont™ Kevlar®, DuPont™ Tyvek® and DuPont™ Sorona®, our first renewably sourced polymer family,” said Uma Chowdhry, senior vice president and chief technology officer. “Our work to make better biofuels – including ethanol from cellulose and biobutanol – and our efforts in the areas of photovoltaics, fuel cells, wind power and more are just a few examples of our ability to deliver solutions to global problems such as energy security which is high on the President’s list of priorities.”
