Asahi Kasei acquires ISCC PLUS certification for LEONA™, Polyamide resin 

Asahi Kasei acquired the widely recognized international certification ISCC PLUS* for LEONA™ Polyamide (PA or Nylon) resin as a sustainable product at processing plant in Japan.

Polyamide is an engineering plastic widely used in automotive parts, home appliances, and industrial products. As awareness of the global environment and the importance of sustainability increases, Asahi Kasei is working to further raise the environmental contribution of LEONA™ Polyamide resin by promoting recycling efforts.

We have obtained ISCC PLUS certification for the scheme for compounding recycled pellets made from substandard products generated at our plant.

By using recycled pellets made from substandard materials, it is possible to reduce CFP (Carbon Footprint of Products) and design according to customer requests while retaining the excellent performance (heat resistance, mechanical strength, etc.) of Polyamide resin.

*ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) is an international certification system that offers solutions for the implementation and certification of waste and residue raw materials, non-bio renewables and recycled carbon materials and fuels. ISCC PLUS is a certification system that covers mainly bio-based carbon materials which are produced outside of the EU and supplied globally, and to manage and ensure sustainable raw materials in the supply chain.
