Producer of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fibre Dyneema, DSM Dyneema has set goals to further reduce CO2 emissions by 40 per cent, energy use by 20 per cent and water use by 15 per cent by 2020.

“Through continuous R&D, we aim to further enhance the performance and durability of Dyneema, resulting in solutions that require less material and with a minimal environmental impact,” the company said.

It further said that the company also works closely with clients and industry partners, investing in initiatives that contribute to a circular economy.

According to DSM, factors which combine to make Dyneema 'the greenest strength' are continuous improvement in manufacturing and ongoing R&D to further improve the unique properties of the fibre.

Giving examples, the company informed that seismic survey vessels using ropes made with Dyneema have shown 15 per cent fuel savings while reducing the amount of material used by half.

Heavy-duty chains made with Dyneema use 85 per cent less material compared to steel and denimwear made with the fibre offers a 30 per cent carbon-footprint reduction across its life cycle.

“Airplanes equipped with lightweight aircargo nets made with Dyneema have been shown to consume 10 per cent less fuel and yield a 40 per cent lower carbon footprint,” DSM Dyneema added. (AR)
