By offering such a portfolio, DSM Engineering Materials is taking the next big step in our sustainability journey, which is aligned with DSM’s purpose-led performance-driven strategy, enabling a circular and bio-based economy.
“Developing this portfolio of alternatives will involve a significant resource investment by DSM Engineering Materials over the coming years,” noted Jan-Pedro Vis, director of Global Procurement & Sustainability, in the blog K Fair 2019: Announcing bio- and recycled-based alternatives for our complete portfolio. “But it is a challenge we must and will undertake: together with our customers and partners, we can drive our industry to a more sustainable future, without compromising on the functional performance of our products and materials.”
You can read more about the development of this alternative portfolio in our press release. Also, you can watch the press conference by clicking here.
We also unveiled an important milestone for Stanyl—the launch of key bio-based Stanyl grades, which are available now. In addition, as part of our ambitious Sustainability Roadmap, by 2030 all Stanyl grades will be available in a format with at least 25% bio-based raw material.
Materials and applications
Here are some of our most innovative materials solutions and applications we featured at K 2019:
Kitchen utensils: Cookware applications, such as spatulas made from Stanyl TE200F6-FC, were displayed. These applications require a stiffness at high temperature and long-term heat resistance, plus they need to be dishwasher proof, thermal shock resistance, and water-cooled tooling capable. Plus, the material solutions used for these cooking applications need to pass food contact regulations and high temperature mechanical food contact requirements.
