DuPont™ Tyvek® helps to protect and preserve buildings at Yellowstone Park, USA

DuPont™ Tyvek® helps to protect and preserve buildings at Yellowstone Park, USA

The Old Faithful Visitor Education Center at Yellowstone National Park is being outfitted with DuPont™ Tyvek®. The products of DuPont used in the building, along with others throughout the park will help to reduce Yellowstone’s overall energy consumption, as well as prepare it for increased visitation while mitigating risk to its natural resources. 

"We were pleased to partner with DuPont. DuPont™ Tyvek® is perfect for the extreme weather in Yellowstone and assists the Park greatly in its ongoing efforts to improve its energy efficiency." said Paul Zambernardi, executive director, Yellowstone Park Foundation.

Through the nonprofit Yellowstone Park Foundation, DuPont donated its full portfolio to help Yellowstone reach its goal of becoming the most sustainable national park in the United States.

Yellowstone National Park embarked on a series of new construction and remodelling projects throughout the park including the Old Faithful Visitor Education Center, the Yellowstone Justice Center and a new Canyon Ranger Station.
