Key services


Danisco Animal Nutrition

Many of our products also have a positive effect on the environment, by reducing potentially undesirable nitrogenous/nitrogen or phosphate excretion. Others contribute to uniform weight gain, reduce dependence on antibiotics and increase the animal’s ability to absorb and utilize important nutritional elements from their feed. We believe in working in partnership with our customers and have developed a range of services to ensure satisfaction and enhanced profitability.



As a leader in the development of renewable alternatives for petroleum-based chemicals and fuels, DuPont Industrial Biosciences is helping to pave the way towards a more sustainable future.

Sorona® Renewably Sourced Fiber

DuPont introduced nylon to the world at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. Now, over 70 years later, DuPont has commercialized the most advanced fiber platform since that breakthrough moment. Sorona® renewably sourced fiber  is made, in part, with renewably sourced (biobased) ingredients* instead of petrochemicals, thereby helping reduce our dependency on oil. From durable carpets to high-performance fabrics, the unique properties of Sorona® make it ideal for a range of applications. Learn more at

BioIsoprene™ Monomer

Together with The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, we are co-developing an integrated process to manufacture an alternative to  petroleum-based isoprene at industrial scale.  BioIsoprene™ monomer will enable Goodyear to produce high quality synthetic rubber for tires without dependence on petroleum-based feedstock. 

As BioIsoprene™ monomer is produced from renewable raw materials, manufacturers in many industries will be able to count on a reliable, consistent supply that is not subject to fluctuating oil prices. This creates tremendous opportunities for growth across a wide range of industrial applications – from adhesives and specialty elastomers and surgical gloves, to advanced transportation  and jet fuels.


Natural Betaine for Personal Care

Betaine is naturally present in our skin and hair, where it has a moisturizing and protective effect. DuPont Industrial Biosciences is a leading supplier of natural betaine, also known as trimethylglycine, for personal care applications. Produced from sugar beet molasses, a renewable raw material, natural betaine is suitable for use in a wide range of formulations for skin, hair and oral care. 

In skin care products, betaine’s natural, high purity qualities give a soft and smooth skin feel to anti-aging creams, lotions, aftershaves, wet wipes, baby and suncare products.

In haircare, betaine can increase water retention by 40%*. It is widely used in shampoos, conditioners, styling and sensitive scalp products.

Natural betaine in toothpastes, gels and mouthwashes can make the mouth, gums and tongue feel fresher, more moist, and reduces irritation**.

Natural betaine (trimethylglycine) is non-toxic with no added preservatives. It is stable and easy-to-use, and is highly soluble in water, ethanol, propylene glycol and glycerine. It can even improve the solubility of, for example, salicylic acid and allantoin.
