"We are focused on helping our customers meet their long-term sustainability 
goals with innovative, reliable products," said Steve Manning, Ascend's senior 
director for engineered materials. "ReDefyne combines our expertise from 
Poliblend with our integrated operations and our global application development 
expertise to produce a recycled polyamide that performs in areas recycled 
materials have typically been ruled out of."  

ReDefyne products are third-party certified and Ascend is partnering with ITW 
Global Fasteners to pilot blockchain traceability according to the UNI EN 15343 
through Plastic Finder's Certified Circular Plastic(R) program.

"With ReDefyne, ITW is producing fasteners with a considerably lower carbon 
footprint," said Christelle Staller, Ascend's sales director for EMEAI. "ITW 
and Ascend both believe that sustainability requires accountability and are 
excited to pilot Certified Circular Plastic's blockchain traceability program."

Ascend, a fully integrated producer of durable materials, is focused on 
reducing its products' carbon footprint having announced a commitment to 
reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2030 and two new milestones ( 
) announced earlier this month.

Ascend will be showcasing its sustainability efforts and new products, 
including ReDefyne, HiDura MED ( 
) and its new e-mobility solutions, under its Advancing Together theme at K
