Our solutions

At DSM we offer a family of solutions that benefit customers and make life brighter for all. But as a global science-based company what we really provide (and search for every day) is answers: specifically, commercially attractive answers that solve the greatest challenges facing our world. How to feed everyone and keep them healthy and happy; tackling climate change (there’s no point in making everyone healthier if we have no planet to live on); and finding ingenious new ways to preserve the world’s resources and make the very most of what we use. Here’s how…

Nutrition & Health

From products that nourish the world’s needy; to vitamins and micronutrients that improve quality of life for people young and old; to ingredients and innovations that make processed foods and beverages healthier with less sugar, salt and fat; to nourishing our bodies on the outside (with skin care solutions); to materials for biomedical devices that improve and potentially extend millions of lives; to new-age plant proteins that are better for us and the planet…we’re making nutrition more nutritious and healthier for all.

Climate & Energy

Our society’s move to a low-carbon economy - and lifestyle - is more urgent than ever. At DSM we create the technology to make it a reality through everything from advanced solar materials and biofuels that are helping make clean and affordable renewable energy a reality for all; to materials innovations for vehicles and electronics that reduce carbon emissions and enable greener products (and production processes); to bright science for drastically reducing methane emissions in cattle – thus helping to remove one of the most potent greenhouse gases from our environment.

Resources & Circularity

Why did humans choose to create linear value chains when nature is a perfect circle? Our move to a circular, bio-based economy with zero waste is essential for protecting the planet and meeting the needs of a growing population. At DSM we make circularity a reality - from entirely new and 100% renewable product design concepts like Niaga® Technology; to unique food packaging that reduces waste; to high-performance waterborne and plant-based paint resins; to biomedical materials that make medical devices last longer; to fish feed made from algae…instead of fish.
