What is Mass Balance Concept?

Mass balance refers to the mixing of fossil-based and renewable or recycled raw materials into existing systems and production processes, while tracking their quantities, translating them into Mass Balance Units (MBUs equivalents), and attributing them to specific products. A third party then certifies and confirms the recycled or renewable content of final products. Mass balance simultaneously empowers customers to reach their sustainability targets while reducing our own environmental footprint.

What is REDcert2

Founded in 2010 to support the implementation of the Sustainability Ordinances, REDcert actively promotes biofuels and liquid biomass certified as sustainable. In 2018, the scope was expanded to include REDcert2, which includes the efforts of the chemical industry to reduce greenhouse gases and conserve fossil-based resources in favor of sustainably produced and certified biomass.
