ISCC PLUS is a new certification system for applications in the
technical-chemical fields such as bioplastics. ISCC PLUS is ba-
sed on the ISCC certification system, which has been used suc-
cessfully for biofuels for more than two years. More than 1,200
original ISCC certifications have been issued and the certificate is
acknowledged by the European Commission and is supported by the German Federal Ministry
of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection via the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR).
ISCC-certified biomass cannot be sourced from land with high biodiversity value (such as pri-
mary forest, areas designated for the protection of endangered species, or highly bio-diverse
grassland), nor from land with high carbon stock (such as wetlands and continuously forested
areas), or peat lands.
The biomass must be produced in an environmentally responsible manner; this includes the
protection of soil, water, air, and the application of good agricultural practice. The observance of
human rights, labor laws, and good land use practice must be guaranteed. Independent auditors
working in cooperation with ISCC provided a thorough assessment before the certificate was
issued to NatureWorks LLC for their Ingeo PLA. ISCC PLUS certification for NATIVIA ™ films is
available on demand. Should you be interested in this option, please contact your Ti re-
presentative. For further information about about ISCC certification scheme, please visit

technique is also employed in food packaging to make see-through
windows to display the packaged food.
