DuPont Tate & Lyle is pleased to offer Suntory Products Limited a glycol that offers high pumping efficiency at low temperatures and helps reduce the environmental footprint of the Tennensui Southern Alps Hakushu plant.

Suntory Products Limited, in collaboration with DuPont Tate & Lyle, adopted a renewable heat transfer fluid based on Susterra® 1,3-propanediol in its Tennensui Hakushu plant in Japan. Susterra® propanediol offers food and beverage processing companies a high-performing, food safe glycol with excellent low-temperature performance that improves pumping efficiency.

Susterra® is certified 100 percent biobased by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, making it attractive for companies seeking to add renewable content to their products. A peer reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA) demonstrates that the production of biobased propanediol offers significant environmental benefits including up to 40 percent less greenhouse gas emissions and 40 percent less non-renewable energy used in production versus petroleum-based glycols.

Additionally, since Susterra® offers good viscosity even at low temperatures, using Susterra® in heat transfer fluid in food and beverage manufacturing equipment reduces the amount of electricity consumed by the equipment used to heat and cool the beverages during production.    

“DuPont Tate & Lyle is pleased to offer Suntory Products Limited a glycol that offers high pumping efficiency at low temperatures and helps reduce the environmental footprint of the Tennensui Southern Alps Hakushu plant,” said Lirys Crawford, global marketing manager for DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products.
