About DuPont Industrial Biosciences

DuPont Industrial Biosciences works with customers across a wide range of industries to improve products and make processes more sustainable.   Through a unique combination of agricultural, biotechnology, chemical and material science capabilities, coupled with the power of 2,500 talented individuals worldwide, the organization focuses on providing biobased solutions to meet the needs of a growing population while protecting our environment.  

Market-driven science and customer-centric solutions
Working closely with our customers to provide solutions that meet their needs is essential to our approach across industries.  From brewing to biofuels,  from animal nutrition to apparel, together we can find new and better ways to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.  To capitalize on collaboration and best serve our customers, our business is formed around three focus areas:  bioactives, biomaterials, and biorefineries.  

Bioactives — solutions that improve the sustainability profiles of our customers and their products. We develop biobased solutions using innovative enzymes, peptides and performance proteins to help improve performance, productivity, and environmental footprints in markets such as animal health and nutrition, cosmetics and personal care, laundry and dishwashing detergents,  food and beverage production, pulp and paper and textiles processing. 

Biomaterials—high performance materials derived from renewable sources  Through integrated science and strategic partnerships, we develop revolutionary ways of producing materials that meet the demanding requirements of our customers, with no compromise in performance or economics

Biorefineries— solutions to derive maximum value from agricultural feedstocks and unlock the full potential of the biorefinery and its value streams. From bioprocessing products to fully integrated technologies and technical service expertise our aim is to optimize outcomes. Our innovative enzymes for carbohydrate processing and production of fuel ethanol from corn and future biomass feedstocks deliver improved process performance and product yields.
