Through mass balance certification, BASF can provide customers with certified low-carbon engineering plastics with equivalent product properties. GRS and RCS certification verifies the amount of recycled content used in the production of thermoplastic polyurethane, which reduces the consumption of fossil-based raw materials.
ISCC is an internationally recognized mass balance approach certification scheme. Its relevant standards cover all stages of the value chain and are used around the world. ISCC+
Further certification options are provided, including all types of agricultural and forestry raw materials, food, chemical/technical materials, bio-based products, and other areas where biomass may actually be used. REDcert²
It is a certification system for sustainable use of biomass. According to the REDcert² standard, mass balance ensures the correct distribution of renewable resources in the products sold. GRS and
RCS makes an active contribution to sustainable development. In addition to verifying recycled raw materials, these certifications track their journey from raw material to final product, confirming the use of chemicals throughout the production process, while safeguarding social responsibility and environmental behavior.
