Cray Valley Receives ISCC PLUS Certification for Renewable Resins in France

Cray Valley announced the extension of its ISCC PLUS certification on the Carling Saint-Avold platform in France, enabling the production and commercialization of Certified Renewable Resins. The Carling Saint-Avold petrochemical platform is producing specialty resins as well as value-added polymers primarily intended for the automotive industry, and is also French energy and petroleum company TotalEnergiesâ?? main polystyrene production site in Europe.

To accelerate the circular economy, Cray Valley is developing the use of feedstocks obtained through the processing of bio-based or advanced recycling materials. These certified sustainable entrants allow the production of polymers with identical properties to virgin polymers with a significantly reduced environmental impact. ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification), a global certification system, ensures traceability and secures the custody through mass balance approach along the value chain, from feedstock to the final product.

Stéphanie Bouzet, vice president Cray Valley, said, â??We are very proud to continue to develop the resins business in Carling. Indeed, through ISCC PLUS, our product portfolio made in Carling and commercialized under specialty resins brands such as Ricon®, Krasol®, and Cleartack® are now available as Certified Renewable Resins. This will accelerate our automotive and adhesive customers' transition towards more environmentally responsible products.â?

â??This certification will allow us to meet the marketâ??s growing demand for more low-carbon solutions. It reaffirms the commitment of the Carling platform to contribute to TotalEnergiesâ?? ambition of producing 30% circular polymers by 2030,â? said Corinne Loigerot, director of Carling Saint-Avold Platform.
