At Klockner Pentaplast (kp), we are delighted to share a groundbreaking accomplishment that reinforces our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. We have officially been awarded the prestigious International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus for three of our manufacturing facilities across North America and Europe. This remarkable achievement is a testament to our dedication to producing recycled content films, with a particular focus on enhancing the sustainability of medical device packaging.

ISCC Plus Certification: A Symbol of Excellence in Sustainability 

The ISCC Plus certification is a mark of distinction, granting us the authority to utilize chemically recycled raw materials using mass balance. We are proud to stand at the forefront of sustainable practices, setting a new standard in the industry. This certification holds immense value as it empowers us to employ chemically recycled polymers, including the highly acclaimed Eastman’s Eastar™ Renew resin, renowned for its advanced molecular recycling capabilities.

Global Reach: Certified Facilities in Montabaur, Germany, and Gordonsville and Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA

Our commitment to sustainability knows no bounds. The ISCC Plus certification extends to three of our strategic manufacturing sites: Montabaur, Germany, and Gordonsville and Rural Retreat, Virginia, USA. This global recognition reaffirms our dedication to environmental stewardship and responsible manufacturing practices.

Driving Circularity: Transforming Medical Device Films with Renew

The ISCC Plus certification holds particular significance for our Pentamed® Medical Device films. By incorporating chemically recycled polymers, such as the revolutionary Renew, derived from Eastman’s Eastar™ Renew resin, we are actively reducing our reliance on virgin raw materials. This not only enhances the eco-friendliness of our products but also contributes significantly to waste diversion from landfills or incineration.

Beyond Compliance: Proactively Meeting Market Demands for Sustainability 

Our commitment to sustainability surpasses mere regulatory compliance. The ISCC Plus certification aligns seamlessly with the growing demand for sustainable options from our discerning medical device film customer base. We are not just meeting industry standards; we are surpassing them. Our goal is to incorporate more recycled content into our product recipes, design for recyclability, and foster collaboration with key supplier partners to propel circularity in the industry.

It symbolizes our vision for a more sustainable future and underscores our role as innovators in the packaging industry. By embracing chemically recycled polymers in the production of medical device packaging films, we are not only bolstering our environmental credentials but also pioneering innovative solutions in response to the global demand for eco-friendly packaging options.
