Silgan manufacturing sites receive ISCC PLUS certification
ISCC PLUS is the industry’s leading certification for the mass balance protocol, which allows tracking of recycled or bio-based materials in resin production. The resin produced using circular materials as part of a mass balance process is the same as that made from virgin resin made from fossil fuels.
“Sustainability is not just a trend, it’s a real business opportunity to drive improvements and value, both for Silgan Dispensing and our partners,” said John Ferro, vice president of marketing and innovation at Silgan Dispensing. “Renewable resin produced using a certified mass balance approach is another pillar of our overall sustainability strategy and helps improve the circularity of the materials used in our products. “
PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (September 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will bring together the packaging and processing community. With over 1,400 exhibitors, no other event in 2021 will bring together a more comprehensive gathering of suppliers offering new products, technologies and solutions. Registration of participants is now open.
Silgan Dispensing already offers the widest range of post-consumer recycled (PCR) dispensing solutions in the industry. With this certification, the company is now able to offer its customers another sustainable option for distributors of beauty, fragrance and personal care products made with ISCC certified materials. This range includes jars, lotion and perfume pumps and foams.
“This is an exciting evolution of our product line,” said Renato Lenzi, Director of Innovation and New Product Development at Silgan Dispensing. “Our Thomaston site already offers seven product families made by mechanical PCR in multiple colors, and now they can also be made using ISCC certified materials. ”
