Tokai Carbon CB now offers ISCC certified sustainable carbon black at its second plant
According to the Rubber World Magazine, Tokai Carbon CB announced that its Addis, LA facility is certified to the ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) Plus standard, allowing supply of sustainable carbon black. Tokai’s Borger, TX facility was the first carbon black plant in the world to achieve ISCC Plus certification in early 2022. This certification allows Tokai to provide sustainable carbon blacks from two plants using a mass balance process. The ISCC Plus standard uses a mass balance approach to enable users of circular and bio-based feedstocks to certify their products corresponding to the amount of these feedstocks consumed. Tokai Carbon CB currently uses a circular tire pyrolysis oil from ISCC Plus certified suppliers to produce sustainable carbon black declarations that customers are purchasing to produce sustainable consumer products.
“Tokai Carbon CB is committed to being a world leader in sustainability by developing practical solutions for our customers to achieve their sustainability goals. Sustainable carbon black certified to ISCC Plus provides customers a simple solution and supports the development of tire recycling through tire pyrolysis,” said Mark Leigh, president of Tokai Carbon CB. “Besides being the first carbon black company in the market with ISCC Plus certification, Tokai Carbon CB has also achieved a Gold rating on the EcoVadis sustainability scorecard, further demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and our customers.” Leigh added.
