A Bolder Industries facility in Maryville, Missouri, has been awarded an ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) PLUS certification for the company’s circular carbon black, BolderBlack, and its pyrolysis oil BolderOil.
By achieving ISCC PLUS Certification, Bolder Industries – a circular solutions provider for rubber, plastics and petrochemical supply chains – will now be able to bring in-demand, certified circular products to market, presenting customers with options for sustainable raw materials on a mass balance basis to meet individual net zero targets.
It will also enable Bolder’s customers in the rubber, plastic and petrochemical supply chains to validate and accelerate a transition toward a circular economy, with Bolder customers now able to utilize company knowledge learned from a range of manufacturing sectors.
Bolder Industries believes the certification validates the mass balance approach, making it possible to track the quantity and sustainability characteristics of recycled and renewable products within the value chain.
“True circularity has been our goal from the start, and we’re thrilled to see the market demanding that more materials be verified as delivering what they promise,” said Tony Wibbeler, founder and CEO, Bolder Industries. “As a circular solutions provider, ISCC PLUS certification is yet another solution we can deliver to our customers – ensuring Bolder Industries products are made from certified sustainable materials that contribute directly to their net zero goals.”
At present, BolderBlack is used as a sustainable form of carbon black in more than 3,000 products which include vehicle components, tires and more. The company’s BolderOil has been fully adopted by the petrochemical supply chain as a sustainable oil for well cleanup, solvents and fuels.
Having become an ISO 9001-certified facility in 2021, the Bolder Industries Maryville facility has also undergone expansion to increase the site’s production capacity by 2.5x this year.
Two further Bolder sites will also apply for ISCC PLUS certification in Terre Haute, Indiana, and Antwerp, Belgium, when they are commissioned in 2023 and 2024 respectively.
