DuPont’s Zemea Solvent Added To CleanGredients Database

November 30, -0001

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products’ Zemea propanediol has been listed in the CleanGredients database as passing the U.S. EPA Design for the Environment (DfE) screen. Zemea, the first DfE-screened solvent to be listed in CleanGredients, is a 100% natural ingredient made from corn sugar and developed for use in the cleaning and personal care categories. It is a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based glycols in cleaning product formulations where the product’s solvency properties, purity level, low irritation and excellent moisturization properties are benefits, according to the manufacturer.

“We’re excited to be the first solvent listed in CleanGredients,” said David Wood, product director for DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. “Our objective is to provide high quality, sustainable products that minimize our environmental footprint. We believe this listing will enable more formulators to take advantage of the performance benefits of Zemea and help them to streamline the process for achieving DfE recognition for their cleaning products.”

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is a joint venture between DuPont and Tate & Lyle, a renewable food and industrial ingredients company. More info: www.duponttateandlyle.com
