Initial certification includes select plastic additives produced at BASF manufacturing sites in Switzerland and the United States

BASF has received the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS for certain grades of plastic additives produced at its manufacturing sites in Kaisten, Switzerland and McIntosh, Alabama, United States. This certification will enable BASF to offer more sustainable grades of its core plastic additives with a reduced Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) through the use of renewable raw materials in a mass balance approach.
An ISCC PLUS certification covers the entire value chain and ensures the use of renewable materials. It is an internationally recognized certification process for the mass balance methodology.
This certification paves the way for BASF to offer mass balance certificates for certain products to its plastic additives customers. As part of the mass balance certification, a chain of custody must be demonstrated from the input of renewable raw materials to the final sale product with sustainability claims. The company’s manufacturing sites in Switzerland and the United States are the two pilot sites for this certification as part of a global implementation.
“We are the first plastic additives supplier to offer a selected range of biomass balance certified antioxidants as an extension of our VALERAS® portfolio. Our customers now have a choice of more sustainable antioxidants that are produced using responsibly sourced and renewable materials instead of fossil resources without compromising their high functional performance,” said Dr. Achim Sties, Senior Vice President, Plastic Additives, BASF. “As we continue the journey with our customers and partners to create new value for plastics, we focus on driving innovations that make a significant contribution to sustainability.”
