DuPont Industrial Biosciences (IB) officially opened the doors of its renovated global center for technological innovation. The facility, known as Building E353, is part of DuPont’s Experimental Station – the breeding ground for paradigm-shifting technologies over the decades from nylon to DuPont Kevlar to Lycra to IB’s renewably sourced Sorona performance fibre. “At this new facility, we have hundreds of people working toward a more sustainable future by innovating biobased solutions that are better, safer and more renewable,” said William Feehery, President of DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “The redesigned and upgraded laboratories and office spaces are incubators for some of DuPont’s most groundbreaking work.” The revitalization of Building E353 is part of a more than $200 mn investment in the Experimental Station campus, which began in 2016 and encompasses about 50 buildings, with over 2 mn sqr. ft. of space.
