Celanese Achieves ISCC Certification for Reducing its Carbon Footprint by 70%

Celanese Corporation announced that the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) has certified its Low Carbon CCU (carbon capture and utilization) Methanol under the ISCC Carbon Footprint Certification (CFC) system. The newly certified Low Carbon CCU Methanol demonstrates a greater than 70% reduction in carbon footprint relative to a global average benchmark for fossil-based methanol production, as included in EU legislation.

The ISCC CFC system establishes a structure and methodology to validate appropriate accounting for the CO2 capture benefits of the CCU process as well as tracking of sustainable feedstocks using the mass balance system.

Celanese began operating one of the largest active CCU facilities in the world at its Clear Lake, Texas, site in January 2024. By leveraging CCU, Celanese now offers customers low-carbon options across its Acetyl Chain and Engineered Materials products under the ECO-CC name. CCU takes CO2 industrial emissions that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere and applies reduced-carbon-intensity hydrogen to chemically convert the captured CO2 into a methanol building block used for downstream production.

“We’re proud to be the first to receive ISCC CFC certification for CCU materials, which allows us to strengthen our ability to offer customers a wider range of lower-carbon footprint products,” said Kevin Norfleet, global sustainability director, Acetyls at Celanese. “This is another industry-leading step Celanese has taken to provide third-party validation of sustainable product benefits while helping our customers to meet the growing demand for more sustainable solutions.”
