DuPont Products Help Protect and Preserve Yellowstone
When construction on the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is complete, it will have been outfitted with DuPont™ Tyvek® Weather Barrier Systems. The DuPont products used in the building, along with others throughout the park, are helping to reduce Yellowstone’s overall energy consumption, as well as prepare it for increased visitation while mitigating risk to its natural resources.
“DuPont is proud to help contribute to the preservation of one of the nation’s most beautiful natural treasures,” said Tom Schuler, vice president and general manager, DuPont Building Innovations. “This partnership is consistent with our commitment to help create sustainable solutions for buildings everywhere.”
Through the nonprofit Yellowstone Park Foundation, DuPont is donating its full portfolio of moisture management and weatherization products to help Yellowstone reach its goal of becoming the most sustainable national park in the United States. Yellowstone National Park is embarking on a series of new construction and remodeling projects throughout the park including the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center, the Yellowstone Justice Center and a new Canyon Ranger Station. DuPont™ Tyvek® Weather Barrier Systems will help reduce the energy load required to heat and cool the buildings and protect structures from air and water penetration, while still allowing moisture to escape.
“We are so pleased to begin this partnership with DuPont and expect it to flourish for years to come,” said Paul Zambernardi, executive director, Yellowstone Park Foundation. “DuPont™ Tyvek® is perfect for the extreme weather in Yellowstone and will assist the Park greatly in its ongoing efforts to improve its energy efficiency.”
DuPont™ Tyvek® Weather Barrier Systems provide the industry’s best combination of air, water and moisture management properties. Based on 30 years of research and development measuring wall system dynamics and the attributes of secondary weather barrier systems, DuPont research indicates that protecting wall systems from water infiltration helps to prevent the growth of mold.
