DuPont Tate & Lyle’s Latest Innovations Showcased at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (7/20/17)
DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products today announced participation in the 2017 Outdoor Retailer
Summer Market showcasing many new innovations based on Susterra® propanediol, a pure, bio-
based, petroleum-free diol. Susterra® delivers high performance in a variety of polyurethane
applications, from footwear and waterproof films to artificial leather and coatings.
A hand-crafted double growler bag made by Ullr Cooler (www.ullrcoolers.com) takes center stage on
the DuPont Tate & Lyle Susterra® brand stand. The bag is engineered for long-lasting performance
using CORDURA® EcoMade fabric laminated with a bio-based membrane incorporating Susterra®
propanediol. The use of both CORDURA® fabric and Susterra® propanediol in the double growler
bag is part of a key collaboration between INVISTA and DuPont Tate & Lyle.
“We are excited to once again showcase our commitment to eco-efficient textiles and smart
innovation at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market,” said Laurie Kronenberg, global marketing
director for DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. “Our involvement with heat-transfer fluids in the
brewing industry along with the growler bag offering now means that DuPont Tate & Lyle can help
cool beer in the breweries as well as on the go.”
Participation in this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market is part of a yearlong DuPont Tate & Lyle
recognition of a decade of offering petroleum-free, sustainable and renewably sourced materials. To

fabric’ collaboration, or just to learn more about Susterra® propanediol, visit our innovation wall at

Durable coatings and waterproof, breathable membranes made with Susterra® propanediol are
manufactured through a proprietary fermentation process using plant-derived glucose instead of
petroleum-based feedstocks. In addition to being renewably sourced, Susterra® is manufactured
using a sustainable process that produces 50 percent less greenhouse gas emissions and consumes
42 percent less nonrenewable energy than equivalent petroleum-based diols.
DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is a joint venture between DuPont, a global science company, and
Tate & Lyle, a world-leading renewable food and industrial ingredients company. DuPont Tate & Lyle
Bio Products provides natural and renewably sourced ingredients that enhance product performance.
