DuPont Tate & Lyle’s Latest Innovations Showcased at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market
Wilmington, DE, Nov. 27, 2017 – 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 Coolers (http://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 beer lovers. We are adventurous. We make products that we want to use and that last. When we determined that keeping beer cold while traveling was a necessity, we took it upon ourselves to figure out how to do it,” said Jason Schooler, co-owner of Ullr Coolers. “When DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products approached us with the ‘CORDURA® + Susterra® fabric’ innovation, it helped us meet this common summertime need. Using recycled and renewably sourced plant-based materials, while being highly durable, we’re creating something that we love to use and will last.”
“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.

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.
