Biotechnology Can Address Global Mega Trends, DuPont Leader Says
Date:10/7/2009

ibutes of nylon, but features an environmentally improved manufacturing process using 100 percent naturally sourced ingredients. Demand for this fiber and other renewably sourced materials have more than doubled since market entry two years ago. DuPont biotechnology also is key to the development of biobutanol, an advanced biofuel being developed in partnership with BP. A joint venture was formed earlier this year – Butamax Advanced Biofuels LLC – to market and commercialize the technology by 2012. A joint venture with Danisco is also working on cellulosic ethanol with intention to be operational in 2012.
Borel noted that the potential of biotechnology to make a difference is greatest where the biggest challenges exist.

“Emerging markets have perhaps the most to gain from biotechnology,” he said. “The positive impacts of biotechnology will be especially dramatic for people in developing countries because the technology is size neutral and can efficiently deliver increases in volume and quality of crops.”

Though adoption of plant biotechnology has been at a rapid pace, Borel emphasized the importance of continually working to keep consumers informed about the technology and working tirelessly to manage it carefully.

“Transparency of information with our key stakeholders is key to public understanding and consumer confidence,” said Borel. “But it will be our stewardship of the technology — how we use it, manage it and regulate it — that will ultimately determine how quickly and how fully the potential of the technology will be realized.”
BioJapan 2009 brings together opinion leaders in biotechnology from major corporations, venture companies, financial institutions, government agencies and other organizations from around the globe to discuss the future of the world's bioindustries. The event provides a forum to create network
