Redox partner Royal DSM has 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 accounting 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 recognised 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.

To discuss how you can incorporate bio and/or recycled materials in your next product, contact one of our industry specialists.
