Teijin to Showcase Its New Biomass-derived BPA PC Resin at Chinaplas 2023

Teijin Limited will attend Chinaplas 2023 (booth No. 17K91) to exhibit its new biomass-derived bisphenol A (BPA) polycarbonate (PC) resin products, which was certified as a ISCC PLUS sustainable-product by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) system in January.
Enhancing Its Lineup of Eco-friendly Circular Materials
Teijin will be the first Japanese firm to showcase an ISCC PLUS-certified PC resin products. Teijin facilities in Japan are now producing biomass PC resin products that contain BPA made from biomass naphtha tracked with the mass-balance approach.
Under this approach, materials are verifiably tracked through complex value chains, as in the case of biomass-derived raw materials that are mixed with petroleum-derived raw materials in final products. Biomass PC resin, which offers the same physical properties as resins made of petroleum-derived BPA, is suitable for many commercial applications including the automotive, telecommunication and healthcare fields.
Going forward, Teijin expects to continue enhancing its lineup of eco-friendly Circular Materials (CM) made with biomass-derived PC resin Panlite® CM. Chinaplas 2023, Asia's largest exhibition for the plastics and rubber industries, will be held at the Shenzhen World Exhibition & Convention Center in China from April 17 to 20.
