Evonik’s Essen site achieves ISCC PLUS certification for specialty chemicals production

Latest site certification supports Evonik’s continued portfolio transformation to sustainable solutions

  • By ICN Bureau | January 16, 2024

Evonik has attained the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS for its specialty chemicals production at the Essen Goldschmidt site. The certification is based on the mass balance approach, which ensures that sustainable feedstocks are used and that the supply chain is traceable.

The Essen Goldschmidt site follows other Evonik sites, such as Marl and Herne (Germany), and Mobile (Alabama, USA) to gain accreditation for its sustainable and fully traceable supply chains. The increasing move away from fossil-based raw materials is part of the Evonik Next Generation Solutions sustainability strategy, which focuses on portfolio and innovation management, production and technology.

“As an innovation frontrunner in specialty markets, we strive to offer both excellent product performance and sustainability leadership. Thanks to the ISCC PLUS certification for the production of specialty chemicals such as our surfactants at the Goldschmidt site in Essen, our customers from coatings and inks to adhesives, polyurethane foams and personal care will have access to a wider range of certified additives made from a higher proportion of renewable raw materials,” said Dr. Claudine Mollenkopf, head of the Specialty Additives division.
