Borealis is proud to announce that mtm plastics in Niedergebra, Germany, has been awarded the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC PLUS). mtm is a member of the Borealis Group, and this move marks another step in the EverMinds journey to accelerate action in plastics circularity.

Each year, mtm processes around 60 metric kilotons of used plastic packaging from post-consumer sources to produce high quality polyolefin recyclates, including polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for manufacturing injection moulding products. With this certification, mtm now stands as one of very few ISCC PLUS certified mechanical recycling suppliers in Germany.

ISCC PLUS is a global certification that covers the entire supply chain based on mass balance accounting, from raw material to final product, guaranteeing compliance with highest environmental and social standards. By establishing a chain of custody, it ensures traceability for both recyclate-based and renewable-based materials. It also verifies that the mass balance accounting follows predefined and transparent rules.

The latest ISCC PLUS certification at mtm plastics complements Borealis’ existing ISCC PLUS certifications for its recycling operations, including at Ecoplast in Austria and Renasci in Belgium. This achievement offers Borealis’ customers further confidence in the sustainability credentials of its circular materials.
