Kraton, a global speciality polymers producer, has received International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS certification for its manufacturing facility in Belpre, Ohio, US. 

This certification enables the site to produce up to 100% ISCC PLUS-certified renewable Styrenic Block Copolymers under the CirKular+ ReNew Series through a mass balance approach. 

The Belpre facility’s certification complements Kraton’s existing ISCC PLUS-certified facility in Berre, France, which achieved its certification in 2021.  

The CirKular+ ReNew Series, which includes ISCC PLUS-certified renewable polymers, represents an expansion of Kraton’s solutions designed to support the circular economy. 

The ReNew Series offers products with up to 100% certified renewable content, utilising butadiene, styrene, and isoprene.  

This enables customers to implement the mass balance approach to produce renewable products, thereby reducing their carbon footprint, including biogenic carbon, compared to fossil-based alternatives.
