DuPont has developed a multi-part strategy to deliver new technologies to the growing biofuels and chemicals markets market. The strategy includes:
(1) improving existing ethanol production through differentiated agriculture seed products and crop protection solutions as well as through improved bioprocessing aids and enzymes that allow animals to get the most out of valuable ethanol co-products;
(2) developing, commercializing, and licensing new technologies to allow conversion of cellulose to ethanol; and
(3) developing and supplying advanced biofuels, such as biobutanol, a performance drop-in fuel easily integrated with the existing liquid fuel system.
(4) Bringing advanced biomaterials to market such as advanced PDO.
Recently, DuPont’s Michael Salzberg gave this illuminating presentation on cDuPont’s biomaterials ambitions and progress at ABLC 2017 in Washington DC.
