Area LyondellBasell plant receives ISCC PLUS certification

LyondellBasell’s Lake Charles Polyolefins Plant is one of four LyondellBasell U.S. manufacturing locations to obtain the International Sustainability and Carbon PLUS Certification, according to Kara Slaughter, Communication Advisor, Global External Affairs.

ISCC PLUS certification is a globally recognized system for providing traceability of recycled and renewable-based materials across the supply chain.

“Last year the company announced its goal to produce and market two million metric tons of recycled and renewable-based polymers annually by 2030, an ambitious goal, and this distinction marks another step in our circularity journey,” Slaughter said.

This “circle” that recycled content makes was used in naming the Circulen line. The certification enables LyondellBasell to extend its Circulean suite of products to customers in North America beginning with CirulenRevive, which are polymers produced from plastic waste through an advanced recycling process, according to a press release from the company.

“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.

“The ISCC PLUS certification helps us to accelerate our progress as an industry leader in the production and marketing of recycled and renewable-based polymers.”

“LyondellBasell’s Lake Charles Polyolefins Plant is excited to be an instrumental player for our company in giving plastic waste a new purpose,” said Greg Gray, site manager, Lake Charles Polyolefins Plant. “We believe plastics make modern society and items we use every day possible.”
