JAME Technology earns ISCC Plus certification

Sustainable protective cases made with Tritan Renew from Eastman will be available for the global electronics market.

KINGSPORT, Tenn., USA, June 23, 2021 —  JAME Technology is the first qualified manufacturer to obtain ISCC Plus certification to process Tritan Renew from Eastman, which will allow it to offer protective cases made with certified recycled content* for the global electronics market.

International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a globally applicable system that covers all feedstocks and assures that products and materials are sustainable in a measurable way. In addition to phone cases, Eastman is producing Tritan Renew with certified recycled content for a variety of other products.

"This is a significant step forward in our sustainability journey, and we look forward to talking with brands about how we can help them take immediate steps toward meeting their own sustainability goals," said Chen Jianping, chairman of the China-based JAME, one of the world's largest original design manufacturers for protective cases.

Tritan Renew offers sustainability without compromise, providing durability and shatter resistance while holding up against cleaning agents. With up to 50% recycled content* derived from plastic waste, it is a superior, sustainable alternative to polycarbonate in protective cases.

"We're excited about working with JAME to help support brands' sustainability needs across the world," said Courtland Jenkins, commercial director of specialty plastics for Eastman. "We can show companies throughout the electronics market what we can do together to advance the circular economy. And the best thing about it is we can do it right now."
