Bio-based Dyneema® has identical technical characteristics and performance as conventional Dyneema but uses waste from the pulp and timber industry as its primary raw-material.

The new product from DSM Dyneema® is ISCC certified, which guarantees it is sustainable and renewable, due to the “mass-balancing” process. This means that the Ethylene feedstock used to make Dyneema® is transitioned from conventional petrochemical sources (fossil fuels) to sustainable and renewable sources with no change to the manufacturing process or the quality and performance of the yarn!

Therefore, any a rope in Marlow’s standard SK78, SK99 and DM20 range, directly contributes to reduced CO2 emissions and has a lower environmental impact.
