Specifically, DSM Engineering Materials is committing to:

DSM and Fibrant significantly reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions for Akulon® PA6 with EcoLactam®

DSM and Fibrant reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions for Akulon® PA6 by 50% with EcoLactam®.
(Photo: DSM Engineering Materials: DSMPR528)In view of the current tightening of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission ambitions in Europe, it is with great pride that DSM and Fibrant announce the accomplishment of a major reduction in the GHG emission of Caprolactam and thus subsequently also of PA6 as produced in Europe by July 2021. The GHG emission saved is estimated to be around 800 million kg CO2 on annual basis. This significant reduction has been achieved by implementing several technology improvements amongst which an advanced N2O abatement program in Fibrant’s Caprolactam production process.

Circular transition framework enhanced with new metrics for water, financial performance and bioeconomy guidance

DSM Engineering MaterialsThe World Business council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) released the Circular Transition Indicators (CTI) framework version 2.0 and the accompanying online tool that was jointly developed with more than 30 companies. The use of common indicators for circularity performance is essential to accelerating the transition to the circular economy and the CTI process helps companies' scope and prepare their assessment and interpret the results, understand risks and opportunities, prioritize actions and establish SMART targets to monitor progress.

DSM, SABIC, Cepsa, Fibrant, and Viscofan co-develop novel meat packaging material made from mixed post-consumer plastics

DSM, SABIC, Cepsa, Fibrant, and Viscofan co-develop novel meat packaging material made from mixed post-consumer plastics. 
(Photo: Viscofan: DSMPR524)Driven by a shared vision of sustainability and strong collaboration, DSM, SABIC, Cepsa, Fibrant, and Viscofan have together created a multi-barrier casing for meat products made via advanced recycling of post-consumer plastics. The transition towards recycled-based multi-layer films enables the packaging industry to adopt a more sustainable solution without compromising on functional performance. The development of this packaging material underlines a strong commitment to enabling a circular economy by working together with partners throughout the value chain, and addresses the increasing consumer, societal and regulatory demand for more sustainable multi-layer barrier casing solutions.
