Grupa Azoty introduces sustainable certified polyamide. The company has launched ISCC certified polyamide 6 (PA6), initially targeting the European automotive industry.

The ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) is a global standard system that ensures sustainability and traceability of biomass and bio-based materials throughout the supply chain.

In late 2023, the company initiated production and successfully completed its first transaction of this eco-friendly product. Achieving ISCC PLUS certification for polyamide 6 reflects the company’s broader commitment to fostering sustainability and the bioeconomy across industries.

The certification confirms that the supply chain maintains full traceability of all materials, bolstering sustainability. This process requires rigorous oversight by independent auditors to maintain environmental compliance.

In addition to polyamide 6, Grupa Azoty has extended ISCC PLUS certification to include products such as caprolactam and cyclohexanone. This strategy allows the company to designate sustainable sources for these materials, reducing reliance on fossil-based raw materials.
