Filter material made using Borealis Bornewables polypropylene (PP) meltblown fibers has meant that Dutch PPE Solutions has been able to produce carbon neutral meltblown fabric.
Dutch PPE Solutions (DPS), Eindhoven/Netherlands, a joint venture of VDL Groep, Eindhoven, and Royal DSM NV, Heerlen/Netherlands, produces high-quality medical face masks and filter material, entirely made in the Netherlands. Making its filter materials with Bornewables and green electricity enables DPS to significantly lower its carbon footprint. As Borealis AG, Vienna/Austria, is a leader in meltblown PP materials and in renewable polyolefins, the partnership enables delivery of high-quality filter materials, while minimizing climate impact.
In line with its ambitions to accelerate action on circularity, Bornewables are made from second-generation raw materials such as waste and residues from vegetable oil refining and used cooking oils. Bornewables products are certified in accordance with mass balance requirements, confirming the authenticity as renewable materials and traceability from raw materials to finished product.
