BASF’s biomass balance approach: saving fossil resources in the production of EPS

The biomass balance method (BMB), certified by German technical inspection authority TÜV SÜD, means that fossil raw materials required for the manufacture of EPS (expandable polystyrene) can be replaced with renewable feedstock. Production methods of this kind save valuable resources and reduce CO2 emissions at the same time. The use of biomass-balanced Styropor® and Neopor®, known as Styropor® BMB and Neopor® BMB for short, protects the environment and the climate while maintaining the usual high quality. This is because they are identical to their fossil equivalents in terms of their formulation and properties.
