The Berry Superfos facility in Bouxwiller, France, is the most recent Berry Superfos facility to achieve an ISCC PLUS certification to document the use of circular polymers according to the mass balance approach. This is good news for food producers who want to include recycled material in their packaging.
More used materials, including plastic, need to be recycled to ensure society’s all-important transformation from a throwaway economy into a circular one. To gear up for this transformation, Berry Superfos is using the mass balance approach to integrate circular polymers and is certifying its facilities according to ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification), a third-party standard well-recognised by all stakeholders for recycled and bio-based materials.
The most recent addition to the list of ISCC PLUS certified Berry Superfos facilities is located in Bouxwiller in eastern France. Here Berry Superfos manufactures thermoformed coffee capsules and packaging solutions for food products. Nicolas Dal Degan, Regional Director of Berry Superfos Beverage Systems, says:
“We are very pleased that our Bouxwiller facility now holds an ISCC PLUS certification. This enables us to offer customers in the food and beverage industry solutions made with advanced recycled materials based on the mass balance approach in a transparent way. Third-party certifications like ISCC PLUS build trust, which is crucial, particularly for new methods such as the use of circular polymer for food packaging,”
Ensures traceability along the supply chain
The ISCC PLUS certification ensures credible claims for circular materials by providing traceability along the supply chain and verifying compliance with environmental and social standards. For companies like Berry Superfos which use the mass balance approach, ISCC PLUS certification verifies that the mass balance accounting follows predefined and transparent rules.
You will save virgin materials and reduce landfill waste
Currently, the most common form of advanced recycling requiring an ISCC PLUS certification is pyrolysis which breaks down used plastic into chemical feedstocks of virgin-quality, recycled polypropylene and polyethylene. These are then included in the production of new plastic packaging solutions. Already, Berry Superfos is working with several customers on pioneering projects to reap the benefits of this new technology.
When food and beverage producers opt for a packaging solution with recycled content, they help to reduce the amount of plastic ending up in landfill and also save virgin materials.
If you want to use advanced recycled material in your food and beverage packaging and make claims about its benefits, you are also required to have an ISCC PLUS certification of your own covering your food production facility.
