    COLUMBUS, WI American Packaging Corporation (APC), a leader in flexible packaging solutions, announces five APC Centers of Excellence achieved International Sustainability and Carbon Certification PLUS. APC’s Columbus, Wisconsin, Deforest, Wisconsin, Story City, Iowa, Chili, New York and Rochester, New York plants all achieved the certification, allowing APC to source and convert advanced recycled resins and films, often called circular content. These circular content resins and films are used to manufacture packaging products requiring recycled content and tracks the usage through a mass-balance accounting process, a methodology that looks at all inputs and outputs of a particular process. ISCC PLUS certification plays a crucial role in the development of the circular economy by ensuring the traceability of advanced recycled plastics along the entire supply chain in compliance with the ISCC PLUS standards.

    Unlike traditional mechanically recycled content, the advanced recycled process converts materials to the molecular level, offering a feedstock that can be used to produce new plastic materials with properties equal to virgin plastic. The result is eco-friendly materials that are highly sought-after by environmentally conscious consumers. This certification provides an additional and complementary option to mechanically recycled materials for those customers wishing to utilize recycled content.

    Ray Graham, president of APC, said, “As part of APC’s journey of corporate sustainability and environmental stewardship, American Packaging continues to reconfirm its commitment to end-to-end supply chain excellence and advancing sustainable packaging technologies. This is another major milestone to protect and enhance our world community, for every company and every human being. APC continues to step up to that responsibility, elevating our efforts each and every year.”
