SABIC: Cracking the problem of plastic waste
Sabic, a global leader in the chemical industry, has started the first production of ISCC certified circular polymers in early 2019 using pyrolysis oil. The innovative UK-based company PLASTIC ENERGY produces the patented pyrolysis oil, known as TACOIL, at their plant in Spain from the recycling of mixed plastic waste. The certified circular polymers are planned to be used by SABIC’s customers for packaging solutions for a variety of consumer products.
NatureWorks: 100% commitment to sustainable biopolymers
NatureWorks first gained ISCC PLUS certification in 2012, one of the first biopolymers manufacturers to do so. The innovative company is working towards 100% ISCC certified agricultural input material by 2020. With their commitment to feedstock diversification and the decoupling of plastics from fossil feedstocks the company is an important driver of the bio-economy.
Perstorp: ISCC certified polyols
The Swedish Perstorp Group is a market leader in specialty chemicals for diverse industries and applications. In 2017 it received its ISCC PLUS certificate for its bio-based products Neeture™, Evyron™ and Voxtar™ for which input materials are sustainably sourced. As the production for the renewable polyols is based on the mass balance concept, the company has created a video that easily explains the mass balance approach, and how it can help the industry to become more sustainable.
UPM, Elopak and DOW: ISCC certified packaging solutions
The UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery produces wood-based naphtha – an excellent raw material for bioplastics, e.g. for the packaging industry. The Norwegian company Elopak supplies 15 billion cartons around the world each year and joined forces with UPM Biofuels and Dow to offer 100% renewable cartons that are both recyclable and responsibly sourced.
