Westlake Corporation announced that their Westlake Epoxy facility in Duisburg, Germany, received the International Sustainability & Carbon Plus (ISCC PLUS) certification.

This recognises their efforts in tracking and using sustainable materials to create epoxy speciality products. It is the second Westlake Epoxy site in Europe to achieve this, and they aim to certify all their European facilities soon.

“This marks a significant step in Westlake Epoxy’s strategy to integrate renewable carbon materials into its raw material supply chain while reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions,” said Ann Frederix, Vice President - Epoxy. “The ISCC PLUS certification creates opportunities for our customers to access a wider range of innovative, renewable attributed and lower-carbon footprint products. The mass balancing concept ensures equivalent performance to traditional epoxy products while supporting our customers in fulfilling their sustainability objectives.”

This certification highlights Westlake's commitment to environmental responsibility. Their strategy aligns with other European businesses like Westlake Vinnolit, whose facilities are all ISCC PLUS certified.

Westlake Epoxy supplies a wide range of industries, including those involved in adhesives, aerospace, and wind energy.
