Global supplier of vanillin Solvay has announced that the production of Rhovanil vanillin at Saint-Fons in France has now been accredited to comply with the mass balance accounting regime of the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) Plus system.
“As a supplier of advanced vanillin technology, we have a strategy to offer natural and sustainable ingredients in the food and fragrances markets. We are very proud to offer new solutions to our customers with ISCC PLUS mass balance certified range of high-purity vanillin,” said Jo Grosemans, Natural Growth Director at Solvay.
The company’s Rhovanil vanillin is primarily used in food and flavour applications, as well as being widely used in home and personal care fragrances. Obtained in late 2022, the ISCC Plus certification confirms the controlled use and traceability of renewable feedstock in the company’s vanillin, to help brand owners meet the growing demand for more sustainable and circular ingredients as they strive to minimise their environmental impact, reduce fossil-based raw materials consumption and carbon footprint.
“Our new Rhovanil MB solution is now commercial. It can be used as immediate drop-in replacements of incumbent products” added Maud Joassard, Marketing Manager at Solvay.
The replacement of primary fossil resources by mass balance certified renewable feedstock aligns with the Solvay One Planet roadmap which details the company’s efforts to improve the sustainability of its operations while also helping customers to reduce their indirect emissions from the suppliers.
