MeadWestvaco Corporation (MWV) is a global packaging company based in Richmond, USA. MWV has a wide range of specialized chemical products whose key feedstock availability are directly dependent on a number of EU legislative policies. MWV key feedstock is Crude Tall Oil, a derivative of woody biomass.
How we helped: Interel services MWV by providing strategic advice and intelligence gathering on EU legislative policies such as the sustainability criteria for biomass, the review of the Renewables Directive, and the Circular Economy, all of which will impact their key feedstocks availability. Interel has also actively assisted MWV in its advocacy efforts on the Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) Directive which seeks to incentivise the use of advanced biofuels such as woody biomass.
