Vynova launches ISCC PLUS-certified renewable caustic soda


Vynova’s renewable caustic soda has a significantly lower carbon footprint than conventionally produced caustic soda as it uses electricity generated from renewable energy input like wind, solar, aerothermal, geothermal or water (including hydrothermal sources, waves and tides) in its membrane electrolysis process. The renewability of the electricity is proven via renewable energy Guarantees of Origin (GOs), renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs) or via a direct connection to the processing unit producing the renewable electricity.

Vynova’s renewable caustic soda, to be produced at its membrane electrolysis plant in Tessenderlo, Belgium, is certified under the ISCC PLUS framework according to a mass balance concept using a proportional approach. Vynova is the first company to obtain the ISCC PLUS certification for renewable caustic soda. Click here for more information.
