DuPont, DENSO Collaborative Solution Earns Award for Reducing Environmental Footprint
At the recent Chunichi Industry Awards ceremony, DuPont Japan and Denso Corporation jointly received the “Extraordinary Encouragement Award for Science-Based Innovation” for co-development of a radiator end tank made from DuPont™ Zytel® RS renewably sourced nylon resin.
The awards were sponsored by Japanese news media Chunichi Shinbun Corporation under the auspices of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The award honors companies with innovative technologies and products that help conserve oil and reduce environmental footprint.
The award-winning radiator end tank incorporating Zytel® RS renewably sourced nylon resin offers exceptional chemical resistance and durability, enabling it to withstand the extreme environment in engines. The tank also helps reduce the use of fossil fuel resources and CO2 emissions. As a first application, this product has been used in the Toyota Camry since the fall of 2009.
“To tackle the challenges of reducing dependence on fossil fuel and environmental impact, adapting renewable sources was one of the solutions for the automobile industry,” said Koichi Fukaya, Denso Corporation chairman. “We aim to further advance the development of replacing conventional products with biobased materials in the automotive market.”
Denso Corporation, headquartered in Kariya, Aichi prefecture, Japan, is a leading global supplier of advanced automotive systems. The DuPont–DENSO collaboration began in the early 1970s, and this prestigious award symbolizes the success of this long-term relationship.
