DuPont to invest US $ 120 million in solar product expansion

DuPont, a leading supplier of materials to the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry, will invest US $120 million for a multi-phase production expansion of its Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride product line.

Tedlar films are durable backsheets for solar PV modules that can withstand any weather condition. The planned expansion will increase the capacity of monomer and resin used in producing Tedlar films by more than 50%.

DuPont has already selected sites for the Tedlar capacity expansion project, with construction already beginning for new monomer and resin facilities at the DuPont sites in Louisville, Kentucky and Fayetteville, North Carolina. These facilities are scheduled to come online in mid-2010.

The company has also implemented capacity expansions for its Tedlar PV2100 series film and is completing the engineering and design for another planned expansion for the production of its Tedlar PV2000 series film.

DuPont expects that the rapid growth of the global solar market will increase the demand for Tedlar and other new materials that increase the efficiency of solar cells and modules. The company anticipates over $1 billion in overall sales of its solar products by 2012.

Founded in 1802, DuPont offers a wide range of products and services for various markets, including agriculture, electronics, communications, energy, and transportation. The company’s headquarters are located in Wilmington, Delaware.
