INFORMATION & IDEAS
DuPont is working with our auto industry collaborators to help them develop the next generation of sustainable mobility solutions. Together, we’re helping reduce dependence on fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions to help manage the environmental impact associated with the world’s increasing demand for automotive mobility.
Many of today’s vehicle system environments are like a pressure cooker of aggressive chemicals. Very few materials have the right combination of characteristics to withstand that kind of severe treatment. DuPont is at the forefront of the development of the latest generation of high performance materials.
Vehicle weight reduction is a major challenge. While plastics are inherently lighter than metals, lightweighting requires more than direct material substitution. DuPont predictive engineering and design teams work with customers, using insight and high-performance DuPont materials to redesign for lower weight, often integrating functions to cut costs at the same time.
