You’ve heard it time and again: Renewable resources are the future. It’s one of the key ways we’ll continue to grow and sustain life on this planet. They provide natural and renewable resourced ingredients that enhance product performance. DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products offers solutions for a wide variety of markets and applications through their bio-based performance brands Susterra and Zemea.
Well, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is taking this to heart. DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is a joint venture between two world leaders in innovation and solutions. They provide natural and renewably sourced ingredients that enhance product performance brands such as Susterra and Zemea.
Together, DuPont and Tate & Lyle Bio Products developed a proprietary process that uses plant-based feedstocks instead of those that are petroleum-based to produce building blocks for the products we use in everyday life.
That’s how they created Susterra®. Susterra propanediol is a single ingredient made from nature that can make the things you love even better.
You can find Susterra in running shoes that offer cushioning and high energy return, in inline skate wheels that give the athlete a secure grip and smooth ride, couches for a boost of enhanced abrasion, and durability, as well as a variety of other applications.
Susterra propanediol benefits include:
• Non-toxic and food safe
• 100% sustainably and renewably sourced
• USDA 100% bio-based product
In addition, Susterra is renewably sourced and generates up to 50% less greenhouse gas emissions over its life. Susterra gives manufacturers the flexibility when it comes to developing high-performing, bio-based solutions.
They’ve even collaborated with INVISTA CORDURA’s® brand to deliver next generation innovative textiles.
Now, your favorite outdoor apparel, footwear, and gear can incorporate leading durable performance fabrics that integrate sustainable membranes and coatings.
