DuPont's Mobility and Materials
unit is seeing " a huge push " on
sustainability, according to Global
Research and Development
Vice President Scott Collick.
" All of our customers are focused
on their carbon footprints
and are looking at recycled content
and biomaterials, " Collick said Oct.
18 in an interview at K 2022.
Customers' preferences on sustainable
materials depends on
their industries, he added. Collick
also said the rise of mass-balance
standards " gives us a lot of
fl exibility. ... It was a real breakthrough
in the industry. "
Use of a new Zytel HTN nylon
resin offers " the best of both
worlds " in a plastic/metal battery
cooling application, he said.
The combination offers the fl exibility
of plastics with the thermal
conductivity of metal.
GREEN SOUL
Our " customer oriented " philosophy guides us in offering high innovative
solutions able to optimize production processes and energy efficiency,
to reduce carbon footprint and treat recycled materials, ensuring
digital connection throughout the production chain.
From this perspective, Sustainability, Technology and Digitalisation are
the pillars that set us apart in the plastics processing industry.

Other DuPont materials on display
at K 2022 are focused on sustainable
materials and application
developments. New products
include materials for sustainable
solutions, automotive electrifi cation,
robotics, consumer electronics,
sporting goods and footwear.
DuPont's booth at K 2022 includes
Future Lab, a section of
the stand where designers and
engineers can fi nd eco-friendly
solutions that are new or have
yet to be introduced to the market.
These materials include Hytrel
ECO B-brand thermoplastic
elastomers made with biomass;
Rynite-brand PET based on
post-consumer recyclate; and
foamable grades of Hytrel for
weight reduction.
Offi cials said Hytrel ECO B delivers
performance equivalent to
Hytrel grades made from fossil
feedstock but with biomass content
up to 72 percent by weight.
In running shoes, standard and
foamable Hytrel is being used in
fi lament uppers, insoles, midsoles
and outsoles. One DuPont customer
also recently launched patented,
foldable swim fi ns, thanks
to an upgrade from Hytrel ECO B.
The Mobility and Materials unit
of Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont
is being sold to Celanese Corp. of
Dallas in an €11 billion deal that
was announced in February. The
European Commission recently
approved the deal after Celanese
agreed to the commission's remedy
commitments, including the
sale of an elastomers business.
Celanese offered to divest its
global thermoplastic copolyester
business, including its production
facility in Ferrara, Italy; and
the Pibifl ex and Ritefl ex brands.
That business competes with a
similar DuPont business.
" Celanese and Dupont's Mobility
and Materials business compete
head to head in the supply
of thermoplastic copolyester,
an essential input for the automobile
sector, " said Margrethe
Vestager, EU competition chief.
" With their transaction, they
would have a combined leading
position in the market with only
a few alternative suppliers. "
In July, DuPont opened a new
biopharmaceutical tubing plant
in
South
Carolina.
The
fi rm
marked the opening of the Liveo
Healthcare Solutions plant at its
Cooper River site in Moncks Corners,
S.C., on July 28. Offi cials
said that the new plant will expand
capacity for biopharmaceutical
tubing extrusion to meet increased
demand. The new plant
has created 25 jobs, with 25 more
expected by mid-2024.
DuPont is a global supplier of
specialty chemicals and related
products. Its plastics products
include nylon resin and Tyvek
polyethylene fi lm.
