DuPont has achieved zero landfill status in its Building Innovations business by reducing, reusing and recycling manufacturing by-products and waste at manufacturing sites globally.

After three years of focused effort, DuPont Building Innovations has become completely landfill free, reducing its environmental footprint from 81 million pounds of landfill waste annually to zero.  Now, through the “Drive to Zero” landfill program, none of the waste generated by the business from the manufacture of DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces, DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces, DuPont™ Tyvek® weatherization systems products and geosynthetic textiles is sent to landfills.
