Matmarket has launched the latest version of Insite Contoura Insoles, featuring 25 percent bio-based Susterra propanediol made by DuPont.
Susterra is a renewably sourced, plant-based building block, according to the company’s recent news release. Compared with conventional petroleum-based alternatives, Susterra propanediol produces 48 percent less greenhouse gas emissions and uses 46 percent less nonrenewable energy from cradle-to-gate, stated the news release.
“We started developing with Susterra propanediol for the sustainability benefits. However, we ended up integrating it into all our products since the material performance alone outperformed our non-bio alternatives,” said Gregory Diharce, chief product officer at Matmarket LLC.
Matmarket is a global, product-based company providing direct-to-brand manufacturing and product solutions since 2000. DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is a joint venture between DuPont, a global science company, and Tate & Lyle, a renewable food and industrial ingredients company, with the goal of providing natural and renewably sourced ingredients that enhance product performance.
