MANUCOR S.p.a OFFERS ISCC PLUS CERTIFIED FILMS FOR A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION
Manucor, one of the main leader in food packaging, self-adhesive labeling and wrap around labeling applications, is reinforcing its commitment to help create a sustainable future with the introduction of ISCC PLUS certified films.
In the current context of moving to a more sustainable world, Manucor S.p.a is committed to preserve our planet’s natural resources and in addition to other ongoing initiatives, is launching non-fossil based polypropylene oriented films, under the certification scheme of ISCC PLUS.
ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) PLUS is an independent internationally recognized sustainability certification, governed by an association with 120+ members, and valued by key brand owners.
ISCC PLUS certification guarantees full traceability and ensures that the whole supply chain is free from deforestation whilst respecting the environment and social rights. ISCC certification is possible according to the mass balance approach, facilitating the production of certified polypropylene, the main raw material used by Manucor S.p.a.
Manucor has identified different sources of ISCC PLUS certified polypropylene, made of various vegetal renewable sources like sunflower, soybean, rapeseed, tall oils and other vegetal oils via a mass balance approach. These are ethically sourced and used to produce naphtha, which is itself converted into propylene, before being polymerized into polypropylene and introduced into Manucor Films production process.
As a result, without any compromise in the final film properties or its food contact approvals, Manucor is proud to announce a film made out of these ISCC PLUS certified sustainable sources, through the mass balance concept used along the supply chain according to ISCC requirements.
As a registered system user, Manucor ensures its complete commitment to the ISCC PLUS Standard, through the certification of its Sessa Aurunca plant (Italy).
