INDUSTRY DATABASE

MARLOW ROPES LTD

Marlow Ropes has begun using bio-based Dyneema, helping the company achieve its sustainability and carbon footprint reduction targets.

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.

Reduced CO2 emissions

Bio-based Dyneema is ISCC-certified as sustainable and renewable via ‘mass-balancing’ which means that the Ethylene feedstock used to make bio-based Dyneema is transitioned from conventional petrochemical sources to sustainable and renewable sources with no change to the manufacturing process or the quality and performance. Any rope made with bio-based Dyneema by Marlow directly contributes to reduced CO2 emissions and has a lower environmental impact.

Every tonne of bio-based Dyneema used reduces carbon emissions by 5 tonnes compared with one tonne of conventional Dyneema. And the comparison with generic HMPE is even starker – 1 tonne of bio-based Dyneema produces 29 tonnes less CO2 than 1 tonne of generic HMPE.
