For the production of our GreenVin® products, we use high-quality Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (GOs/HKNs). This reduces the carbon footprint of Vinnolit GreenVin® PVC by about a quarter compared to our conventional PVC products. For our GreenVin® caustic soda, the CO2 saving is even around one third compared to conventional caustic soda. Furthermore, the company also offers GreenVin® bio-attributed PVC based on renewable ethylene.
Depending on the PVC type, the carbon-dioxide savings with GreenVin® PVC are about 25% compared to conventionally produced ®Vinnolit PVC. The respective carbon footprint for the entire product portfolio was calculated by Sustainable AG in accordance with the ISO 14067 standard. Review and certification are carried out by TÜV Rheinland.
GreenVin® PVC is technically identical to conventional PVC, performs just as well, and is also a more climate-friendly product that our customers can feel good about using.
GreenVin® bio-attributed PVC
GreenVin® bio-attributed PVC is produced with renewable electricity and ISCC PLUS-certified renewable ethylene from biomass. The CO2 savings of GreenVin® bio-attributed PVC is about 90%, compared to conventionally produced Vinnolit® PVC.
Also GreenVin® PVC bio-attributed is technically identical to conventional PVC, performs just as well, and is also a more climate-friendly product that our customers can feel good about using.
GreenVin® Caustic Soda
Caustic soda is an important basic chemical, of which more than nine million metric tons per year are required in Europe alone. The carbon footprint of our GreenVin® low-carbon caustic soda from the Gendorf and Knapsack (Hürth) sites is reduced by more than 30% compared with conventional ®Vinnolit caustic soda.
The carbon footprint taken as a basis was calculated by sustainable AG in accordance with the ISO 14067 standard. Testing and certification are carried out by TÜV Rheinland.
