EPINITY® from AGC Vinythai Public Company Limited has been certified under the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS certification system.
The ISCC PLUS certification is site-specific. EPINITY®’s production site at Map Ta Phut, Thailand has been certified as producing “Bio-Circular Epichlorohydrin” from “Bio-Circular glycerine” which is classified as wastes/residues of biological origin following ISCC’s categories. This certified mass-balance approach ensures the sustainability and traceability of our bio-based Epichlorohydrin (ECH).
ISCC is a multi-stakeholder organisation established in 2010 to support the shift towards the circular economy and bioeconomy. ISCC’s key pillars are no deforestation, traceability throughout the supply chain, feedstock identity, well-defined and third-party verified claims, transparent rules for mass balancing and physical segregation, a multi-stakeholder approach with a continuous dialogue and protection of biodiversity and high carbon stock areas.
Mr. Masayoshi Namba, Business Director, AGC Vinythai said, “ISCC’s key pillars for sustainability are very much in line with our approach since we started producing bio-based Epichlorohydrin in 2012. We appreciate the rigidity of this certification scheme and are pleased to offer EPINITY® with the ISCC PLUS certification from our site in Map Ta Phut, Thailand.”
The ISCC PLUS certification is a voluntary scheme that is applicable for the bioeconomy and circular economy for food, feed, chemicals, plastics, packaging, textiles and renewable feedstock derived from a process using renewable energy sources.
