This Action aligns with the following Calls to Action from the Circular Economy Action Agenda for Plastics
9. Integrate and advance decent work in the transition to a circular economy in plastics
6. Set-up functioning collection systems
DSM has helped to launch a cross-industry coalition, known as CirculariTeam®, to address the recycling and repurposing of end-of-use products made with Dyneema®, an ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (HMPE). Formed by partners from different industries, the coalition aims to drive the transition towards renewable bio- and recycled based resources within its respective industries. CirculariTeam® provides a common platform to share knowledge, resources, and technical solutions with the aim to close the loop on the world’s strongest fiber.
CirculariTeam® will focus on addressing seven primary themes related to the circularity of products made with HMPE: (1) Reverse logistics, (2) Recycle and reuse (3) Efficiency in production processes, (4) Separation of waste into material components, (5) Design for circularity, (6) Regulation, and (7) Information sharing.
