Cincinnati, OH, United States, 2022/08/17 - ProAmpac, a leader in flexible packaging and material science, announced their Rocky Mount, VA facility received the International Sustainability Carbon Certification Plus (ISCC Plus) - ISCC-System.org / ProAmpac.com.
This is a global sustainability certification system which supports the tracking of chemically recycled and bio-based polymers through the supply chain.
“The ISCC Plus certification (iscc-system.org), coupled with our ProActive Sustainability product offering, underscores ProAmpac’s commitment to helping brand owners and retailers meet their sustainability goals,” states Chad Murdock, president of ProAmpac’s Film and Fiber Division.
ProAmpac’s Rocky Mount facility has extensive film extrusion expertise. Processing conventional product formulas along with chemically recycled, and bio-based alternative materials, Rocky Mount provides sustainable optionality for customers. In addition, chemically (or advanced) recycled polymers can further reduce the use of virgin materials and are the only feedstock derived from post-consumer waste with the same purity and quality as virgin plastics available for food packaging.
“As more chemically recycled content becomes available and consumers better understand the sustainability benefits of the material, the ISCC Plus badge will become an important packaging differentiator.” states Jed Chubb, director of product development blown film, for ProAmpac. “ProAmpac is excited to couple our blown-film expertise with ISCC Plus certification, delivering more sustainable flexible packaging to market faster for our customers,” says Chubb.
Rocky Mount is ProAmpac’s second facility to earn ISCC Plus. ProAmpac’s Grimsby, UK location received certification in 2021.
