SABIC, Riyadh/Saudi Arabia, and Royal DSM NV, Heerlen/Netherlands, have announced a collaboration to create new Dyneema UHMWPE products made using certified circular polymers from SABIC’s Trucicle portfolio of circular solutions.

In this pilot project, DSM will produce Dyneema using SABIC’s certified circular ethylene in both a sailing rope and a pelagic trawl net application. The circular ethylene from SABIC’s Trucicle portfolio, uses mixed plastic waste as feedstock, which not only contributes to preventing valuable plastic from becoming waste and the avoidance of carbon emissions compared to incineration, but it will also help preserve fossil resources.

Since early 2019, SABIC has been supplying its certified circular products to leading customers and converters, providing them with access to more sustainable materials.
