The oil and carbon black that Scandinavian Enviro Systems recovers from end-of-life vehicle tyres in its plant in Åsensbruk have received new certification in accordance with the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) scheme.
It is the second time that the recovered carbon black and oil from the facility in Åsensbruk has received renewed certification in accordance with ISCC, International Sustainability & Carbon Certification. The first certification was obtained in September 2021 and meant that Enviro became the first in the world to obtain an ISCC certification for recovered carbon black.
A certification in accordance with ISCC represent an objective and standardized calculation of the emissions of climate-affecting carbon dioxide. According to the ISCC certification, using recovered carbon black from Åsensbruk, compared to using an equivalent amount of fossil carbon black, results in a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 93 percent. The standardized calculation gives Enviro’s customers the opportunity to objectively assess the environmental benefit of using Enviro’s recycled raw materials, which in turn gives a higher commercial value to the raw materials.
The certification of the oil means, as the company previously announced, that in accordance with the EU’s mass balance perspective via the ISCC certification, it can be commercialized by fuel producers as 100% renewable.
