Defining Renewability

Renewability becomes possible when DuPont integrates its core scientific disciplines — from biotechnology to chemistry and materials science — to unlock and harness the solar energy stored within plants in the form of naturally occurring compounds like carbohydrates, oils, or proteins. These compounds are separated out and then used as feedstocks to create DuPont™ Renewably Sourced™ Materials — high-performance materials and fuels derived from renewable, farm-grown sources, rather than petroleum. DuPont™ Renewably Sourced™ Materials contain a minimum of 20% renewably sourced ingredients by weight.
