Covestro has expanded the reach of its product portfolio with the ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) PLUS certification of its production site in Baytown, Texas. Covestro says it is the first manufacturer of polyurethane and polycarbonate raw materials to receive this certification in the United States.

According to Covestro, the certification of the Baytown site, the company’s largest operating facility in North and South America and its third-largest production site worldwide, means all Covestro’s major sites are now certified by the internationally recognized ISCC PLUS standard. In addition to Baytown, Covestro’s certified sites include Shanghai, China; Changhua, Taiwan; Map Ta Phut, Thailand; Antwerp, Belgium; Filago, Italy; and the Leverkusen, Dormagen, Krefeld-Uerdingen sites in Germany.

“Customers in North America can now reduce their carbon footprint and Scope 3 emissions with drop-in, mass-balanced materials derived from recycled and bio-attributed products,” says Sucheta Govil, chief commercial officer of Covestro.
