Biomass Balance: plasticizer portfolio
BASF’s Biomass Balance Approach contributes to the use of renewable raw materials in its integrated production system. In this process, renewable resources, such as bio-naphtha or bio-methane derived from organic waste or vegetable oils, are used as feedstock at the very beginning of the Production Verbund and are allocated to the respective sales products using a third party verified mass balance approach. The certified products thus contribute to sustainable development by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving fossil resources.
The resulting products which carry the name suffix “BMB” have the exact same properties as those manufactured from fossil feedstock. Our customers can therefore further process them in the same way as conventionally manufactured products and use them in demanding applications.
