Sharing our solutions and knowledge
With a shared passion for sustainability, DSM is proud to support The Ocean Cleanup, sharing our facilities, materials knowledge, networks and supplying Dyneema®, the world’s strongest fiber™, for use in the floating barrier system. Dyneema is 15x stronger than steel and extremely suitable for tough marine environment.
The Ocean Cleanup aims to remove 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch over the course of 5 years. Moving towards the deployment of their first cleanup system in mid-2018, The Ocean Cleanup continues to test and verify system components. On 29 August 2017 they deployed the first part of their new North Sea prototype.
