Borealis is providing Dutch PPE Solutions, a joint venture of VDL Groep and Royal DSM, with renewable polypropylene (PP) from its Bornewables range of circular polyolefins, supporting them in reducing the climate impact of meltblown production.


Dutch PPE Solutions produces high-quality medical face masks and filter material entirely made in the Netherlands. Making filter materials with Bornewables and green electricity enables Dutch PPE Solutions to significantly lower its carbon footprint.


“In the Netherlands, we produce high-quality medical face masks and meltblown filter material with priority to serve healthcare workers and the local industry. With Borealis as a partner, we significantly lower our carbon footprint at the same time,” stated Mark Bakermans, managing director, Dutch PPE Solutions.


Dutch PPE Solutions are now producing meltblown filter material in the Netherlands using Borealis Bornewables PP.

In line with its EverMinds ambitions to accelerate action on circularity, Borealis’ Bornewables are made from second-generation raw materials such as waste and residues from vegetable oil refining and used cooking oils.


Borealis’ Bornewables products are ISCC PLUS certified in accordance with mass balance requirements, confirming the authenticity as renewable materials and traceability from raw materials to finished product.


“We are delighted that together with Dutch PPE Solutions, we are able to provide a solution that contributes towards safety and a better climate outcome,” added Trevor Davis, Head of Marketing Consumer Products at Borealis. “Thanks to our Bornewables range, we are able to help customers meet their sustainability goals while maintaining the existing quality standards of their products.”
