LONDON, UK: Inovyn has launched its latest generation of PVC under the brand name BIOVYN, becoming the world’s first commercial producer of bio-attributed PVC using a supply chain fully certified by The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB).  

Manufactured at Rheinberg, Germany, BIOVYN is made using bio-attributed ethylene, a renewable feedstock derived from biomass that does not compete with the food chain. 

BIOVYN is certified by RSB as delivering a 100% substitution of fossil feedstock in its production system, enabling a greenhouse gas saving of over 90% compared to conventionally produced PVC. 

Inovyn’s choice of an RSB-certified feedstock also demonstrates its commitment to working within the emerging bio economy, adding to the extremely strong sustainability credentials of BIOVYN.

BIOVYN is expected to have numerous value-added applications across a range of industry sectors, including highly specialised end-uses such as automotive and medical. Inovyn has been working closely with Tarkett since the early stages of product development. The first application of BIOVYN will be by Tarkett, who will source it for a new flooring collection.

“Through our sustainability programme we are developing a new generation of PVC grades that meet both the rigorous product quality and performance needs of our customers, whilst moving us closer towards a circular, carbon-neutral economy for PVC,” said Filipe Constant, Business Director, Inovyn.

“BIOVYN is an excellent example of Inovyn’s ongoing commitment to accelerate progress towards a circular economy for PVC. It is also a major step forward in Inovyn’s journey to sustainability and demonstrates our commitment to developing innovative solutions that address society’s needs,” added Filipe.
