BASF's biomass balance approach


New: OPPANOL® BMBcert™ Biomass Balanced


Dicykan BMBcertTM

Dicykan serves as a raw material for the production of frames and lenses of eyeglasses, amongst other applications. With the “biomass balance principle” BASF found a way to reduce the product carbon footprint of Dicykan by at least 50 percent through exchanging the fossil feedstock with renewable feedstock. In addition, BASF customers support the shift to a circular economy with Dicykan BMBcert™.

The approach is applied to many BASF products, such as superabsorbents, dispersions, plastics and intermediates. The resulting biomass balanced products offer BASF customers a differentiation opportunity such as a quantifiably improved CO2 footprint and savings of fossil resources. Customers can rely on the identical product quality and performance to which they are accustomed to and benefit from a sustainable drop-in solution, making a conscious contribution to environmental protection.

BASF markets its biomass balanced products as BMBcertTM portfolio.
