Royal DSM has signed a memorandum of understanding between its US-based business unit DSM Functional Materials and Empresa Brasileira de Biotechnologia (Ebrabiotech) of Brazil for the launch of a new line of DSM-branded bio-based materials targeting the concrete floor coatings market. The initiative focuses on the development of bio-based castor oil materials, which is non-edible and helps to lower the total carbon footprint.

In 2009, the functional materials business launched its first eco-friendly line of floor coating products, UVolve Instant Floor Coatings, based on UV-curable technology.

"The new development between DSM and Ebrabiotech fits perfectly with our two companies' shared interest in developing innovative, green chemistries that deliver more sustainable solutions to people working into various markets around the globe," said Henk-Jan Koenen, business unit director, DSM Functional Materials. "For DSM, sustainability continues to be our primary innovation driver and our portfolio strongly reflects DSM's commitment to the 'triple-p' bottom line approach—people, planet, profit."

The new line of bio-based materials developed by DSM and Ebrabiotech will initially target the industrial concrete flooring market. However, future materials developed between the two companies are expected to also offer sustainable new low-carbon footprint solutions for aquaculture and structural steel protection applications.
