HEXPOL TPE awarded ISCC PLUS certification in the UK
ISCC PLUS is a global certification scheme providing traceability along the supply chain. It guarantees the correct and transparent use of the mass balance approach. All companies along the supply chain undergo the ISCC PLUS audit process. Sustainability declarations create a chain of custody from origin through to the brand owner.
Mass balance allows for a gradual increase of the non-virgin fossil share of polymer compounds with the target to reduce the use of fossil raw materials step by step, without the need for investment in new equipment.
This certification allows HEXPOL TPE to produce ISCC PLUS certified bio, circular and/or bio–circular attributed TPE and TPV materials via the mass balance approach. Selected versions of the Dryflex TPE portfolio will be available. These new TPEs will offer a drop-in material alternative for customers. Importantly, for companies in highly regulated markets, the TPE’s technical properties, chemical composition, and regulatory status will be the same as the corresponding fossil grade.
