Responsible Care Certification for Solvay Specialty Polymers' India Site
Solvay Specialty Polymers, global supplier of ultra-high performance thermoplastics, has announced that its Panoli, India manufacturing facility recently earned Responsible Care certification from the Indian Chemical Council. Responsible Care is a voluntary initiative of the global chemical industry to improve health and environmental performance, enhance security, and communicate with stakeholders about products and processes.
“Our company is committed to sustainable development which improves employee safety, the health of the communities in which they operate, and the environment as a whole, moving us toward a safer, more sustainable future,” said S. Sankaranarayanan, Panoli plant manager for Solvay Specialty Polymers. At the Panoli site, Solvay manufactures Veradel polyethersulfone (PESU), KetaSpire polyetheretherketone (PEEK), and related monomers for PESU.
Solvay became a signatory to the Responsible Care guiding principles in India in 2013 and later successfully passed an audit inspection by the Indian Chemical Council. The Responsible Care guiding principles are at the heart of the voluntary commitment. Through these principles, member companies pledge to improve environmental, health, safety, and security performance for facilities, processes, and products throughout the entire operating system. Companies also are committed to open and transparent reporting and submit annual data on their progress toward meeting performance measured goals. Responsible Care which was launched in Canada in 1985 goes above and beyond what is legally required in most countries and is overseen by the International Council of Chemical Associations.
