DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, LLC, an equally owned joint venture of DuPont and Tate & Lyle, marked the growing demand for products made from its Bio-PDO product with a new facility in Loudon County, TN.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Samuel W. Bodman joined senior leaders from DuPont, Tate & Lyle, the joint venture and their customers to see the new production facility first-hand and recognize its official opening.

The Loudon facility produces 1,3-propanediol (Bio-PDO) from renewable resources—in this case corn sugar— making it the first facility in the world to manufacture this new bio-based product. Bio-PDO is a versatile, biodegradable and high-performance ingredient that can be used in cosmetics and liquid detergents.

At the opening, the American Chemical Society (ACS) presented the research teams involved in the development of Bio-PDO with the 2007 Heroes of Chemistry award. Representing the teams and organizations receiving the award were: Charlie Nakamura and Cathy Babowitz of DuPont, Dennis Adkesson of Tate & Lyle and Gregg Whited of Genencor International.
