Mass Balance Approach
Mass balance involves mixing virgin fossil and renewable or circular raw materials into existing systems and production processes. The renewable amount is then allocated mathematically to specific products and is certified by a neutral third party to verify the use of renewable or circular resources across all stages of production. Mass balance is a way to keep track of the renewable or circular quantities throughout the process and to allocate them to specific products. It allows for large-scale production and enables cost-effective solutions that meet more stringent environmental and sustainability targets.
Mass Balance allows for instant CO2 reduction in existing plants.
