CHIMEI to launch Ecologue™ bio-ABS products with ISCC PLUS approval in 2023
EQS Newswire / 10/11/2022 / 09:00 CET/CEST
CHIMEI Corporation’s factory in Tainan, Taiwan, has obtained International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS for ABS, SAN, MS (SMMA), HBR, and SSBR products.
TAINAN, TAIWAN - Media OutReach - 10 November 2022 - A Taiwan-based performance materials company that designs and manufactures advanced polymer materials, synthetic rubbers, and specialty chemicals, CHIMEI Corporation is adding a range of International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS approved bioplastics to its newly released Ecologue™ sustainable materials portfolio.
ISCC PLUS adopts a mass balance approach to ensure that renewable materials are correctly calculated and used in production processes. It ensures traceability throughout the entire supply chain, from raw materials to the final product, providing a global standard for product sustainability.
Approval from ISCC PLUS reinforces the renewable plastics value chain, which CHIMEI has been building together with Neste, Idemitsu Kosan, and Mitsubishi Corporation, allowing CHIMEI to introduce new, renewable biomass materials that can effectively replace fossil feedstock in plastic production.
The ISCC PLUS approvals apply to ABS, SAN, MS (SMMA), HBR, and SSBR products, which are produced at CHIMEI's factory in Tainan, Taiwan. CHIMEI will officially launch ISCC PLUS bio-ABS products, under the Ecologue trademark, in the first half of 2023.
"Reaching carbon neutrality is a top priority for CHIMEI, and it should be paramount for everyone in our supply chain," says Andrew Hsieh, CHIMEI Sustainable Material Solutions Manager. "By opting for materials that are made from renewable, biomass feedstock, a brand can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of its products, and distance itself from the oil industry. As more brands opt for sustainable material solutions, like bioplastics, their decision will reverberate upstream into manufacturing industries where it can really make a massive impact."
CHIMEI Corporation first received the ISCC PLUS approvals during K 2022, the world-leading trade fair for plastics and rubber. News of receiving the ISCC PLUS was initially shared with guests at the Ecologue™ Talks event in K fair, which were attended by many of CHIMEI's global supply chain partners.
Bioplastics are one of three innovation areas in CHIMEI's Ecologue™ sustainable materials portfolio. CHIMEI's ongoing bioplastic innovations include biodegradable materials, which have the potential to replace single-use plastics in the near future. CHIMEI aims to expand its bioplastic offerings over the coming years.
Production is an ongoing innovation area in CHIMEI's Ecologue™ sustainable materials portfolio. This includes carbon capture and utilization at CHIMEI facilities. Of the three innovation areas at CHIMEI, recycling has proffered the most development; featuring optical-grade, chemically recycled MMA, and mechanically recycled PCR materials.

PARIS (Reuters) -The European Central Bank should raise interest rates by 50 basis points (bp) on Dec. 15, French central bank chief Francois Villeroy de Galhau said on Sunday, reinforcing expectations for the ECB to slow the pace of monetary tightening. The ECB has raised rates by a record 200 basis points since July, but a slowdown in euro zone inflation and more benign signals from the U.S. Federal Reserve have solidified the case for a 50 bp move after back-to-back 75 bp hikes.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) -The EU will adapt its state aid rules to prevent an exodus of investment triggered by a new U.S. green energy subsidy package, the bloc's chief executive said on Sunday. "Competition is good ... but this competition must respect a level playing field," European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a speech in the Belgian city of Bruges. "The (U.S.) Inflation Reduction Act should make us reflect on how we can improve our state aid frameworks and adapt them to a new global environment," she added.
Taking charge amid the chaos triggered by his predecessor’s mini-Budget, one of Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s first acts as Chancellor was to scale back the level of state financial support for households’ energy bills.

The U.S. and the EU have so far sought to be conciliatory about the bill, saying last week they would seek to tackle the bloc's concerns about the package, known as the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act. EU members worry the $430 billion bill, with generous tax breaks for U.S. companies, may disadvantage European companies from car manufacturers to makers of green technology. Officials from both sides are due to address the issue at a meeting next week, but Bernd Lange, the chair of EU parliament's trade committee, said he no longer expects a negotiated solution as only small changes could still be agreed through talks.

Many of the protesters were understandably oblique. Some held up blank sheets of paper. Others displayed an exclamation mark on a red background - the symbol of a message that can’t be delivered on WeChat, China’s main messaging platform. One woman brought a pair of alpacas, the physical manifestation of an online meme based on the Mandarin for “grass mud horse” – cào nǐ mā – sounding like an insult that urges the subject to perform an unspeakable act on their mother.
