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

Austrian manufacturer of advanced and circular polyolefins, Borealis, is providing medical technology manufacturer, Dutch PPE Solutions with renewable polypropylene (PP) from its Bornewables range, to help reduce the climate impact of meltblown production. Dutch PPE Solutions, a joint venture of VDL Groep and Royal DSM, produces high-quality medical face masks and filter material, entirely made in the Netherlands. Making its filter materials with Bornewables and green electricity enables the company 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,” says Mark Bakermans, managing director Dutch PPE Solutions. Borealis’ Bornewables are made from second-generation raw materials such as waste and residues from vegetable oil refining and used cooking oils. The 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.
