DuPont Tate & Lyle Zemea Propanediol Zemea USP Susterra Propanediol


The renewably-sourced propanediol made using our unique Bio-PDO process is more sustainable compared to petroleum-based 1,3-PDO and PG.

From "cradle-to-gate," the production of Bio-PDO consumes up to 40% less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 40% versus petroleum-based 1,3-PDO and PG*.

Life cycle assessment (LCA) is the only standardized method for comparing the environmental foot print of bio-based materials vs petroleum-derived products throughout the entire supply chain.
