Marlow Ropes are proud to be using bio-based Dyneema. This new innovation reduces Dyneema's reliance on fossil fuels and helps Marlow achieve our 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.

Bio-based Dyneema® is ISCC certified as sustainable and renewable via "mass-balancing*". This means that the Ethylene feedstock used to make Dyneema® is transitioned from conventional petrochemical sources to sustainable and renewable sources with no change to the manufacturing process or the quality and performance of the yarn!

Therefore, any a 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® Marlow use, reduces carbon emissions by 5 tonnes compared with a 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**. That is equivalent to charging 3.7m Smart phones or the same CO2 offset by 480 seedlings grown for 10 years.
