Extending the lifetime of materials and products

With improved durability or shelf-life

A Circular Economy will keep products, components and materials in use, at their highest value, for the longest possible time. The simplest way to achieve this is to improve their durability or shelf-life in the first instance.

To reduce demand on nature's increasingly llimited resources, DSM is committed to extending the lifetime of its materials and products, and reducing use in its own operations and supply-chain.

Natural food preservatives

Preventing food waste is essential and DSM's range of highly efficient natural preservatives protect cheese, fermented milk products, meat, beverages and bakery goods against bacteria, mold and yeast. They work without effecting taste, color or smell and in extending shelf-life, also reduce waste.
