INOVYN commences specialty vinyls production in Belgium

This development broadens INOVYN’s production network across Europe and strengthens its long-term growth strategy to improve the circular economy with BIOVYN, offering customers an even broader range of choice of bio-attributed PVC grades and copolymers.

INOVYN has announced to extend its certification from The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) to include the production of BIOVYN from its Jemeppe site in Belgium.
 
BIOVYN is a new range of PVC that is produced with 100% substitution of fossil feedstock by biomass, enabling a greenhouse gas saving of over 90% compared to conventional PVC.  After a successful launch and certification of BIOVYN as a world first from our Rheinberg site in Germany back in October 2019, INOVYN now further extends its RSB certification to BIOVYN production at the Belgian site of Jemeppe, thereby offering an even wider range of sustainably produced PVC grades.
 
RSB is a global, multi-stakeholder independent organisation that drives the development of a new world bioeconomy through sustainability solutions, certification, and collaborative partnerships.
 
This development broadens INOVYN’s production network across Europe and strengthens our long-term growth strategy to improve the circular economy with BIOVYN, offering customers an even broader range of choice of bio-attributed PVC grades and copolymers.
 
With well invested and dedicated production facilities across Europe, INOVYN’s Specialty Vinyls portfolio is unique, with over 60 different grades available. INOVYN is the leading manufacturer of specialty vinyls worldwide and hosts a dedicated Research & Development team producing highly innovative product solutions for customers.
 
INOVYN’s selection of an RSB-certified feedstock demonstrates its commitment to developing sustainable biomaterials, and the newly produced certificate lists both Rheinberg and Jemeppe as certified Plants under the INOVYN Europe Ltd registration.
 
Filipe Constant, Business Director INOVYN, explains: “BIOVYN is an excellent example of INOVYN’s ongoing commitment to accelerate progress towards a circular economy and carbon neutrality for PVC.  It is also a major step forward in INOVYN’s journey to sustainability and demonstrates our commitment to developing innovative solutions that address society’s needs.”
