Neste and DSM to create high performance polymers made from sustainable feedstock

November 29, 2020 |

In Finland, Royal DSM will start a strategic partnership with Neste to enable the production of high-performance polymers. DSM Engineering Materials will start replacing a significant portion of the fossil feedstock used in the manufacture of its polymers portfolio with feedstock produced from recycled waste plastics and/or 100% bio-based hydrocarbons.

These polymers are used, for example, in the automotive, electronics and packaging industries. This enables DSM and its customers to reduce the carbon footprint of their own products whilst supporting the industry to transition to a circular economy.

Over the short term, the collaboration aims to replace several thousand tons of fossil feedstock in the production of polymers with alternative, sustainable feedstock: bio-based and waste plastic based hydrocarbons.

Neste produces its bio-based hydrocarbons entirely from renewable raw materials, such as waste and residue oils and fats. For the production of waste plastic derived feedstock, Neste focuses on plastics that cannot be mechanically recycled and have previously been directed to incineration and landfilling.
