Biotechnology and industrial enzyme development are key innovation drivers for the move towards the Biobased Economy. As a catalyst for change, DuPont Industrial Biosciences is committed to having a positive impact on the sustainability of every household globally.
Our vision is to be recognized as a game-changing innovator of solutions that will enable the Biobased Economy. We believe “White Biotechnology” – or the use of biotechnology for industrial purposes - will be a key driver in the creation of more sustainable industries.
Innovation and collaboration with like-minded organizations are already enabling us to integrate social, environmental and financial performance into our own business. They can also help to address the global challenges of the 21st century. In our vision of the future, biotechnology fulfils many of society’s unmet needs in the fields of food, health, energy, fuels and chemicals. Through the development and use of industrial enzymes and biomaterials, industries can increase the production of ever more effective or more environmentally friendly products made from renewable raw materials. We see fuel ethanol from agricultural by-products providing an alternative to fossil fuel, and biorefineries gradually will live alongside oil refineries to make the fuel, chemicals, and plastics that advanced societies rely on.
This isn’t a sudden conversion. DuPont Industrial Biosciences represents over 30 years' committment of pushing the boundaries of sustainable industry.
It’s in our nature.
