INEOS Styrolution receives ISCC PLUS certification in Europe

  • ISCC certifies production sites in Antwerp and Ludwigshafen
  • Certified assurance to meet high sustainability requirements with styrenics materials

 

INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, has announced today that two of its European production sites, namely Antwerp, Belgium and Ludwigshafen, Germany received the ISCC PLUS certification from ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification).

The certification announced today paves the way for the audited production of recycling- and bio-attributed styrenics materials using a mass balance approach.

The ISCC PLUS certificate for Antwerp addresses bio-attributed and recycled-attributed ABS[1], SBC[2] and polystyrene.

The respective certificate for Ludwigshafen addresses bio-attributed and recycled-attributed SMMA[3], SAN[4] and ABS.

This announcement follows a recent announcement for ISCC PLUS certification of several INEOS Styrolution sites in the Americas[5]. Further certifications for other European INEOS Styrolution production sites are expected soon.

Dr. Eike Jahnke, Vice President Specialties EMEA comments: “We are excited to receive the ISCC PLUS certifications since we will now be able to offer our customers sustainable styrenics solutions that meet all the stringent ISCC requirements. I am looking forward to having sustainable ECO solutions for our broad range of styrenics Specialty products.”

Sven Riechers, Vice President Standard Products EMEA adds: “Complementing our existing sustainable solutions, I expect INEOS Styrolution’s family of sustainable ECO products to grow rapidly as a result of today’s announcement.”
