RSB Certification 

INOVYN is delighted to extend its certification from The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) to include the production of BIOVYN from our Porsgrunn and Stenungsund sites in Norway and Sweden respectively.

BIOVYN is a unique range of PVC that is produced with 100% substitution of fossil feedstock by biomass, enabling a greenhouse gas saving of over 90% compared to conventional PVC.

After a successful launch and certification of BIOVYN as a world-first from our Rheinberg site in Germany in October 2019, and the first certification extension to cover our Jemeppe site in Belgium in 2020, INOVYN now further extends its RSB certification to BIOVYN production at its two Nordics sites, thereby offering an even wider range of sustainably produced PVC grades.
