Covestro Receives New Sustainability Certification Expanding Its Circular Economy Product Portfolio
Covestro has received the ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) PLUS certification of its production site in Baytown, Texas (USA). The company reports that this significantly expands the reach of its product portfolio for the circular economy. The Baytown site is the company's largest operating facility in North and South America and its third-largest production site worldwide. This most recent achievement is significant, with all of Covestro's major sites now certified by the internationally recognized ISCC PLUS standard. In addition to Baytown, certified sites include Leverkusen, Dormagen, Krefeld-Uerdingen (Germany), Shanghai (China), Changhua (Taiwan), Map Ta Phut (Thailand), Antwerp (Belgium) and Filago (Italy).
The company reports that it is the first manufacturer of polyurethane and polycarbonate raw materials to receive this certification in the United States. The certification is an important milestone for the company and the industries it serves, including the automotive, construction, comfort, electronics and appliance industries. According to Covestro, these markets will now have access to ISCC PLUS-certified products made from more sustainable raw materials in North America.
