Sorona® Renewably Sourced Fiber

DuPont introduced nylon to the world at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Now, over 70 years later, DuPont has commercialized the most advanced fiber platform since that breakthrough moment. Sorona® renewably sourced fiber  is made, in part, with renewably sourced (biobased) ingredients* instead of petrochemicals, thereby helping reduce our dependency on oil. From durable carpets to high-performance fabrics, the unique properties of Sorona® make it ideal for a range of applications. Learn more at sorona.dupont.com

BioIsoprene™ Monomer

Together with The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, we are co-developing an integrated process to manufacture an alternative to  petroleum-based isoprene at industrial scale.  BioIsoprene™ monomer will enable Goodyear to produce high quality synthetic rubber for tires without dependence on petroleum-based feedstock. 

As BioIsoprene™ monomer is produced from renewable raw materials, manufacturers in many industries will be able to count on a reliable, consistent supply that is not subject to fluctuating oil prices. This creates tremendous opportunities for growth across a wide range of industrial applications – from adhesives and specialty elastomers and surgical gloves, to advanced transportation  and jet fuels.



* Sorona® contains 37% annually renewable plant based ingredients by weight (28% biobased carbon)


Together we can power our future with biobased alternatives to chemicals.
