INOVYN starts deliveries of the world's first commercially available renewable PVC
INOVYN has made its first deliveries of BIOVYNTM, the world’s first commercially available bio-attributed PVC.
Deliveries were made to Tarkett, which is sourcing BIOVYNTM for a new sustainable flooring collection due to be launched in 2020.
Comments Filipe Constant, Business Director INOVYN: “Since the launch of BIOVYN™ in October, we have seen strong global interest. We’ve had expressions of interest from leading companies across a wide range of sectors including automotive, medical, furniture and other consumer goods, where sustainability is becoming increasingly important.
“The very strong sustainability credentials of BIOVYN™, not least the significant greenhouse gas savings delivered during production, are already proving to be very attractive to these global brands as they move towards more sustainable products.”
Earlier this year INOVYN launched BIOVYNTM, which is made using a renewable feedstock derived from the wood value chain. It delivers a greenhouse gas saving of over 90% compared to conventionally produced PVC as certified by The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB).
