cct ISO 9001:2008 & 14001:2004 Certified

carbon clean tech AG (cct) is proud to announce another milestone in our commitment to excellence; ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certification. cct is the first producer of recovered carbon black worldwide to have received certification.

cct’s achievement implements a robust quality and environmental management system to guide and govern our operations from top to bottom.  This certification is an important step in assuring that our customers continue to receive the very best in quality and service.

The ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 quality management standards were developed and published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and establish an effective quality and environmental management program for manufacturing companies.  Important components of both ISO certifications include customer satisfaction, establishing processes for continuous improvement, minimzing harmful effects on the environment, all items that cct values highly.

Car Manufacturers Search for Sustainable Solutions

A recent article from The Guardian focuses on the efforts of a few of the top car manufacturers to integrate closed-loop thinking into their production processes. Renault, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Toyota are facing the facts: dwindling natural resources and creation of environmental policies means sustainable solutions have to be incorporated now.

It is not hard to see how recovered carbon black (aCB) can play a significant role – either as a use for the end-of-life tires, or in a new vehicle for any polymer components which require carbon black:

“Within Europe, ELV legislation dictates that 85% of a car is recycled, a figure set to increase to 95% in 2015. Several manufacturers including Nissan and Toyota are involved in trials working with vehicle dismantlers, shredders and recyclers to ascertain the best methods for high value extraction of mechanical and increasingly, mechatronic parts.”

So, not only could they support the fulfillment of their recycling quotas, but put something sustainable back into their new cars. It doesn’t get more closed-loop than that.
