P66 Sweeny Refinery Achieves ISCC PLUS Certification
OAKHURST, N.J. (DTN) -- Phillips 66 announced today that it has received
International Sustainability and Carbon Certification PLUS certification for
its Sweeny Refinery in Texas to process oil made from waste plastics into
feedstocks for new plastics.
The certification for the Sweeny Refinery is the latest example of how
Phillips 66 is working to play a key role in building a lower-carbon future by
capitalizing on its core comprehensive and integrated assets.
ISCC is a globally applicable and industry recognized sustainability
certification system that covers all sustainable feedstocks, including circular
feedstocks produced from plastic waste. Its ISCC PLUS certificate covers
biobased and recycled, or circular, raw materials.
The ISCC PLUS certification verifies the refinery meets the standards to
process pyrolysis made from hard-to-recycle waste plastics into circular
ethane, circular propane, circular propylene and other sustainable feedstocks
and petrochemical building blocks. The products will be used to support polymer
producers, including Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC, Phillips 66's 50-50
joint venture, that are advancing a circular economy for plastics.
"Phillips 66 is committed to keeping plastics out of the environment and
driving toward a more circular economy where plastics packaging is reused,
recycled or recovered," said Zhanna Golodryga, executive vice president of
Emerging Energy and Sustainability at Phillips 66. "The ISCC PLUS certification
highlights the company's resolve to create sustainable streams for waste
materials and to support the growth of advanced recycling in plastics."
