INEOS Styrolution (Frankfurt, Germany) announced that two of its European production sites, namely Antwerp, Belgium and Ludwigshafen, Germany received the ISCC PLUS certification from ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification).

The certification announced paves the way for the audited production of recycling- and bio-attributed styrenics materials using a mass balance approach.

The ISCC PLUS certificate for Antwerp addresses bio-attributed and recycled-attributed ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), SBC (styrene-butadiene copolymers) and polystyrene.

The respective certificate for Ludwigshafen addresses bio-attributed and recycled-attributed SMMA (styrene methyl methacrylate), SAN (styrene acrylonitrile copolymer) and ABS.

This announcement follows a recent announcement for ISCC PLUS certification of several INEOS Styrolution sites in the Americas. Further certifications for other European INEOS Styrolution production sites are expected soon.

Dr. Eike Jahnke, Vice President Specialties EMEA comments: “We are excited to receive the ISCC PLUS certifications since we will now be able to offer our customers sustainable styrenics solutions that meet all the stringent ISCC requirements. I am looking forward to having sustainable ECO solutions for our broad range of styrenics Specialty products.”

Sven Riechers, Vice President Standard Products EMEA adds: “Complementing our existing sustainable solutions, I expect INEOS Styrolution’s family of sustainable ECO products to grow rapidly as a result of today’s announcement.”

ISCC is an independent multi-stakeholder organization providing a globally applicable certification system for the sustainability of raw materials and products. It has been developed to meet the high demands regarding the implementation of environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable production.

The problem with hydrogen

Chemical Value Chain

At first glance, hydrogen seems to be the perfect solution to our energy needs. It doesn’t produce any carbon dioxide when used. It can store energy for long periods of time. It doesn’t leave behind hazardous waste materials, like nuclear does. And it doesn’t require large swathes of land to be flooded, like hydroelectricity. Seems too good to be true. So…what’s the catch?
