LyondellBasell Gets Sustainability and Carbon Certification for N. American Resins
September 10, 2021

LyondellBasell has obtained the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS certification for certain grades of Polyethylene and Polypropylene produced at four of its US plants. The resin producer secured its certification for crackers in Channelview, Texas and Polymer sites in Lake Charles, Louisiana; La Porte, Texas; and Clinton, Iowa, with plans to expand certification to its other North American Polymer plants.

The ISCC PLUS certification is a globally recognized system for providing traceability of recycled and renewable-based materials across the supply chain and is part of LyondellBasell's approach to help advance the circular economy as it develops its own (molecular) recycling technology. It also enables LyondellBasell to extend its Circulen suite of products to customers in North America and offer mass balance certificates for its products.

The company said it will begin North American Circulen production with its CirculenRevive products, which are Polymers produced from plastic waste through an advanced recycling process, initially using feedstock provided by third parties. Production is also expected to gradually ramp up in the coming years to meet growing demand.

"By delivering these new CirculenRevive products, we are proving plastics have value beyond their initial use, in any application that virgin plastic is used," said Ken Lane, LyondellBasell Executive Vice President of Global Olefins and Polyolefins.
