Royal DSM, Sabic, and UPM Biofuels, which produces sustainable raw materials, have formed a partnership to help reduce the environmental footprint of DSM’s Dyneema fiber material.

Plans are for Dyneema material to be made using UPM’s bio-based feedstock with Sabic’s Trucircle renewable ethylene, the companies said. DSM hopes to source at least 60% of its feedstock from bio-based raw material by 2030.

‘By partnering with SABIC and UPM Biofuels, we are taking the next important step in our sustainability journey, and driving our industry’s transition from conventional to renewable resources,’ said Wilfrid Gambade, president DSM Protective Materials.
