Indorama Obtains ISCC Certification at Two Hygiene Sites – Nonwovens Industry Magazine

Two of Indorama Ventures’ Hygiene division manufacturing plants have achieved ISCC Plus certification. FiberVisions’ polypropylene fiber manufacturing site in Varde, Denmark, and Avgol’s spunbond nonwovens production site in Uzlovaya, Russia, have passed audits related to traceability and reasonable use of biomaterials.

Shachar Rachim, CEO of IVL’s Hygiene Division, part of IVL’s Fibers business segment, said: “This accreditation underscores our commitment to helping our customers achieve their carbon dioxide reduction goals through use of carbon neutral fibers. Certification is assurance that our nonwoven fabrics and fibers meet all of ISCC’s demanding standards for recycled and renewable materials. Our certified facilities can trace product composition throughout the supply chain, without having to requalify materials.

IVL expects other facilities to receive similar certifications as the company continues to develop technologies to address how component materials interact with the environment to improve recyclability, reduce consumption of raw materials and minimize the impact of fugitive waste.

In June, Indorama announced a three-line extension to Avgol’s Russian operation, including a high-speed, high-capacity Reicofil 5 line, a meltblowing machine and a laminator.
