DuPont, Tate & Lyle Form PDO Joint Venture Company

Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont and London-based Tate & Lyle Plc, looking to build upon a proprietary fermentation and purification process they developed for 1,3 propanediol (PDO), have established a joint venture company, DuPont Tate & Lyle BioProducts LLC. The new company, to be based in Wilmington, will begin commercial production of PDO - the key building block in DuPont Sorona® polymer - in 2006 at a new facility in Loudon, Tenn. A pilot facility has been in operation in Decatur, Ill., for several years. Sorona is suitable for a variety of applications including apparel, interiors, engineering resins and packaging.
