Even the most durable products will eventually reach the end of their usable life. Achieving end-to-end sustainability means taking care of the end-of-life stage – so that we minimize Dyneema®’s impact and retain the maximum value from the resources that go into making our products.

Our end-of-life solutions fall into three core categories


We work with our customers to co-design products that are not only fit for purpose but also help extend the lifetimes of essential applications.

In rope applications, for example, we’ve developed a fatigue performance model and a temperature model that can predict and extend the use of lifting slings under particular conditions. By extending the lifetime of end products, we reduce the amount of material usage and waste. We follow an “assurance case” approach to ensure safe, reliable, and sustainable reuse.


We want to ensure our products are disposed of responsibly when they reach their end of life, without resorting to incineration or landfills.

Together with our customers and other third parties, we’ve set up collection points for end-of-life products made with Dyneema®. In the maritime rope and net industry, for instance, we’re helping to establish these collection points in major global harbors, from which the products will be sent to recycling centers.

Of course, this process requires close collaboration – and that’s where CirculariTeam® comes in: our global cross-industry coalition consisting of partners from along the value chain.


We’re working to establish a commercial-scale recycling solution for post-production and post-consumer waste.

This includes exploring ways to turn end-of-life Dyneema® fiber back into its original feedstock through mechanical and chemical recycling processes. Our aim is to allow Dyneema® products to be made again and again – so they have an infinite lifetime.
