January 16, 2023
Join ARLANXEO and RDAbbott on Thursday, February 23, 2023, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET) for “Sustainable Keltan® EPDM from ARLANXEO,” a free webinar about Keltan® Eco, a bio and sustainably sourced EPDM product line from ARLANXEO with a 10-year commercial history, and a new approach, based on ISCC+ certification standards, that’s extending the company’s sustainable portfolio.
What You Will Learn
Keltan® Eco is the world’s first commercial EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene) rubber produced from bio-based feedstock. Keltan® Eco contains up to 70 percent ethylene obtained from sugarcane and has an impressive set of properties that remain identical and undiluted, compared to conventional EPDM. This eco-friendly solution ensures a significantly smaller carbon footprint than petroleum-based polymers and reduces our dependence on fossil resources.
The International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a globally leading certification system that offers solutions to address sustainability requirements for all feedstocks and renewables in the energy, food, feed, and chemical sectors. ISCC aims at implementing the highest sustainability requirements across ecological, social, regulatory, and management platforms.
ISCC+ is a sustainability certification program for bio-based and circular (recycled) raw materials in markets and sectors not regulated as transportation fuels under the European Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED) or Fuel Quality Directive (FQD).
