DuPont Dedicates Plant For New Sonora 3GT Polymer

Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont recently dedicated its first continuous polymerization plant for making DuPont® Sorona 3GT polymer. The new facility is located in Kinston, N.C., and was built in response to textile fiber manufacturers uncompromising requirement for consistent, high-quality polymer.The key ingredient in Sorona, 1,3 Propanediol (PDO), is currently made using a petroleum-based process. However, DuPont is developing a new raw material for PDO that is made using sugar from corn and other crops in a biotechnology process.Polymer consistency and quality are absolutely vital to the production of high-quality fibers with superior performance characteristics, said Ian Hudson, Sorona business manager. The successful start-up of this continuous polymerization manufacturing line is a tremendous milestone and sets the stage for the success of our business.
