DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) has been named the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2020 Safer Choice Partner of the Year winner for furthering the safer chemistry and product goals of the agency’s Safer Choice program. The program helps consumers identify cleaning solutions that the EPA considers safe for both human health and the environment with a label on cleaning products.

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences was recognized under the innovator category as a manufacturer of enzyme technology applied in Safer Choice-certified cleaning products. By using enzymes – a leading “green chemistry” technology – DuPont is able to provide its customers with a range of sustainable solutions, such as cold water laundry enzymes or high-performance dish enzymes that enable consumers to save energy during the cleaning process.

DuPont’s enzymes, which are present in many of the EPA Safer Choice cleaning products on the market, prompt natural catalysis, enable use of renewable feedstocks and are designed for energy efficiency and biodegradability.
