Arnsberg/Germany — The plant has successfully obtained the ISCC Plus International Sustainability Carbon Certification, which Ulrika Andersson, EVP Business Area Specialty Polyols & Solutions at Perstorp, describes as an important milestone in the company’s Pro-Environment goals to become Finite Material Neutral.

The Penta polyols are widely used in resins for coatings in the building & construction and steel works industry, from architectural wood to marine paints. The added capacity and ISCC certification of Site Bruchhausen as well as introducing Voxtar production in Bruchhausen is to significantly extend the security of supply of Voxtar, Ulrika Andersson adds. Together with the company’s Stenungsund and Perstorp sites in Sweden, Bruchhausen is now a part of the producer’s strategic shift from fossil to renewable raw materials and energy. The independent third-party ISCC certified products comes with a Proof of Sustainability document which states the products contribution to sustainable sourcing according to the certified mass balance system.
