International Sustainability & Carbon Certification
A sustainability certification system with which we establish traceability in the supply chains of raw materials of renewable origin. In this way, we contribute to the change towards the circular economy and the bioeconomy, manifesting our contributions through the use of the ISCC PLUS certified system.
One of the major advantages of the ISCC PLUS mass balance approach is the possibility to gradually increase the share of bio-based and/or circular feedstocks in the production process. In addition, the calculated share of bio-based and/or circular feedstocks can be attributed on an equivalent basis to one or several outputs. On this basis, the ISCC PLUS mass balance approach allows system users to make credible claims.

For a more sustainable world
Lead the transition to a circular economy and bioeconomy
NUDEC se certifica en ISCC PLUS mediante la certificadora CGN en marzo de 2021 con la intención de fabricar placas de plástico con materia prima de origen sostenible, ya sea bio-circular o reciclado, mediante el enfoque de masas. El certificado ISCC PLUS de NUDEC se puede encontrar realizando una búsqueda en la página web de la compañía certificadora o haciendo clic en el siguiente botón.
ISCC offers two chain of custody options for ISCC system users. Materials are either physically segregated in production processes throughout the supply chain (“physical segregation”) or mixed in production but separated in bookkeeping (mass balance approach).
Why it is necessary?
Mass balance is about mixing fossil and renewable but keeping track of their quantities and allocating them to specific products.
Explained by SABIC
Mass balance approach is being increasingly used as we switch from using traditional fossil fuel feedstocks to more sustainable feedstocks to develop plastics.
Example of another sector
Mass balance ensures that while certified cocoa might not end up in every individual chocolate bar, the supply chain is still buying cocoa from Rainforest Alliance Cert. farms.
Sustainable plastic sheets
NUDEC announce the collaboration with SABIC to produce polycarbonate sheets with renewable raw materials
SABIC, the world leader in the chemical industry, has announced to the international press its collaboration agreement with NUDEC S. A. to manufacture transparent polycarbonate sheets using certified renewable raw material.
Our use of SABIC's renewable polycarbonate resin LEXAN™ (part of their TRUCIRCLE™ sustainable product portfolio) will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its ISCC-certified NUDEC®PC products, preserving the identical properties as sheets extruded from fossil-based raw material.
This is the manufacturing scheme for SABIC's renewable raw material based polycarbonate resin:
