Redox Partner DSM announces Bio/recycled alternatives for plastics portfolio

Redox partner Royal DSM has recently announced their intention to offer a full alternative range of its existing engineering plastics portfolio based on bio and/or recycled-based material by 2030, to better meet regulatory and consumer demands for sustainable living practices.

By offering a full portfolio of alternatives that contain at least 25% recycled and/or bio-based content by weight in the final product by 2030, DSM Engineering Plastics is enabling its customers to meet these demands and make more sustainable choices.

In particular, the portfolio of sustainable alternatives will leverage a toolbox of different technologies and approaches such as fermentation, mechanical recycling and mass balance accounting1 of bio-based and/or chemically recycled feedstock.

As an immediate step, today, DSM Engineering Plastics is launching bio-based grades of its Arnitel® and Stanyl® product portfolio manufactured via a mass-balancing approach of bio-based feedstock. The Stanyl bio-based grades are already available with the globally recognized sustainability certification ISCC Plus.

Royal DSM is a purpose-led global science-based company in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living. DSM is dedicated to the development of innovative solutions and collaborations that contribute to a circular economy, representing nature and the circle of life.

At Redox, through our dedicated team of plastic and foam specialists, we deliver real value and a fresh approach to meeting our customer’s needs in a dynamic market. Our principals are leaders in their respective products, allowing us to deliver the widest range of quality materials at a price which allows you to thrive.

Our Future World: Going, going…gone?

According to the CSIRO Our Future World report the megatrend ‘Going, going…gone?’ is concerned with the perilous situation of the world’s ecological habitats and biodiversity where impacts have resulted in more consumption, the decline in habitats, plant species and animal species, increased greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. This trend also explores positive changes and a possibly bright future as whilst the state of biodiversity is in decline, the pressure for change and human response is increasing.

At Redox, we are committed to implementing practical environmental initiatives which lessen our impact on the environment. As such we have installed photovoltaic solar generation systems across five Australian sites in an effort utilise more sustainable resources. With a generation capacity of 3,200kW hours per day, the use of solar powered generation systems allows us to be one step closer in having minimal impact on the environment, decreasing our CO2 emissions by 1,280,000 kg per annum - equivalent to 280 passenger cars or 5,380 computers.

We understand the importance of sustainability and ethical business practices that ensure the long term health and existence of the world’s ecological habituate and biodiversity. As such, we are members of various industry associations that not only set standards but also regulate ethical sourcing supply chains that ensure labour rights, health and safety, the environment and business ethics are uncompromised. Redox is currently a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Sedex, EcoVadis, National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) and Chemistry Australia’s Responsible Care Program.

We have also expanded our product portfolio to include sustainable alternatives to ensure we not only minimise our impact on the environment but that we meet the growing demand of our increasing population. For example, our plant-based proteins are a sustainable solution to meat-based protein which as an industry is responsible for 14.5% of the world’s greenhouse gas emission. Plant protein production offers a lower environmental impact by reducing energy consumption, emissions, water consumption and land usage, while also being a healthy dietary option.

Our Future World: More for Less

According to the CSIRO Our Future World report the megatrend ‘More for Less’ explores how companies, governments and communities will discover new ways of ensuring quality of life for current and future generations within the confines of the natural world’s limited resources. With global water demand forecast to increase by 55% from the year 2000 to 2050, and the concerns that climate change present, managing global water scarcity is important in safeguarding quality of life.  

At Redox, our products are making an important contribution to the efficient and responsible use and reuse of water, enabling governments, companies and individuals to optimise water resources while attending to our shared environmental responsibilities.

Our products are vital to desalination projects which replace scarce inland fresh water sources and retain environmental flows needed for the healthy functioning of our river systems. Our filtration media and chemical treatment options remove heavy metals, biological or physical contaminations from industrial waste water leaving it clean and ready for reuse or return to nature.

Tapping into aquifers through the use of bores can also provide an important source of water for many remote communities, along with Redox’s many anti-fouling acid products which can keep them functioning at peak capacity.

Our associations with industry groups and professionals places us at the forefront of new water technologies and innovations, market demands and consumer expectations, allowing us to help in the preservation of clean water ways, promoting standards for education and training, and the protection of public health.
