Two of the manufacturing sites of the Hygiene Division of Bangkok-headquartered Indorama Ventures (IVL) have achieved International Sustainability Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus certification. 

The FiberVisions site in Varde, Denmark, a polypropylene fibre producer, and Avgol’s Uzlovaya site in Russia, a manufacturer of spunlaid nonwovens, satisfied audits related to traceability and the reasonable use of biomaterials.

“This accreditation underscores our commitment to support our customers to achieve their carbon dioxide reduction targets through using carbon neutral fibres,” said Shachar Rachim, CEO of IVL’s Hygiene Division. “The certification is assurance that our nonwoven fabrics and fibres meet the ISCC’s demanding standards for recycled-renewable materials. Our certified facilities can trace the product’s composition through the supply chain without needing to requalify the materials.”

IVL expects that the ISCC Plus certification for these two sites will be followed by similar certifications at other manufacturing plants. A broad portfolio of technologies is being developed to address how component materials interact with the environment to improve recyclability, reduce raw material consumption, and minimise the impact of fugitive wastes.
