Covestro has now received ISCC Plus mass balance certification for its Antwerp and Krefeld-Uerdingen sites. This means the company can now offer its customers large product volumes of the high-performance plastic polycarbonate made from renewable attributed raw materials in the same good quality as fossil-based polycarbonate. The polyurethane raw material methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) from Krefeld-Uerdingen and its precursor aniline from the Antwerp plant are now also available with ISCC Plus certification.


Systematic tracking of the supply chain

As part of a strategic cooperation, Covestro received a first shipment of ISCC-Plus certified phenol from Borealis in October, which was produced from renewable hydrocarbons from Neste. Phenol is an intermediate product for polycarbonate. Consequently, this means that the supply chain from the originally used waste and residual oils and fats to the plastic is now fully ISCC Plus certified. Polycarbonate is used in high-quality applications in the automotive and electronics industries, among others.

Gradual conversion to renewable raw materials
The certification of the plastic as well as the intermediate product MDI strengthens the use of alternative raw materials at Covestro. MDI is used to produce rigid polyurethane foam, which has been providing efficient thermal insulation for refrigeration appliances and buildings for decades. Gradually converting to renewable raw material sources is part of a comprehensive program with which Covestro, in collaboration with its partners, aims to drive forward the transition to a Circular Economy and become fully circular itself.
