Covestro Receives ISCC Plus Certification for its Antwerp and Uerdingen Sites

January 18 (2021

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.

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.
