Forchem receives ISCC Certification

Forchem has been granted both ISCC EU and ISCC PLUS certificates for it’s bio-energy and fatty acid product lines produced in Rauma, Finland.

ISCC – International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a certification system for the implementation and certification of sustainable and traceable supply chains, free from deforestation. ISCC can be applied globally in all markets including industrial, chemical, energy, and animal feed.

When using renewable and sustainable raw materials, it is important to have credible proof of sustainability starting from the raw material. Using the established mass balance principle, Forchem has proven that it’s Crude tall Oil (CTO) can be certified against the ISCC criteria, with full traceability throughout the supply chain.


This certificate is key to meeting the demands of a broad range of renewable energy users as they seek to transition their raw material slate from finite resources to a sustainable future and the circular economy. The certificate demonstrates compliance with the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED). Forchem can offer several certified product streams, and can tailor-make products to suit specific needs.


This supports customers in reducing their environmental impact and helps meet the consumer-driven demand for more circular supply chains. All non-energy applications are covered ie animal feed, oleochemical applications, lubricants, surfactants etc. Coating resin formulators can achieve superior properties, and reduce carbon emissions by up to 90%, by using For 2 , Forchem´s 100% bio-based fatty acid. For 2 does not conflict with the food chain nor contribute to deforestation.
