Today, the imperative to reduce GHG emissions and move to a more circular economy has permeated across industries. Many companies are now committed to implement concrete actions to meet their sustainable development objectives and demonstrate their ability to shift to more resilient models. In the design phase, one of the challenges is to replace virgin fossil feedstocks by feedstocks coming from biomass or recycled origins while keeping the same high level of performance. The mass balance approach is a virtuous method to accelerate the transition and allows capex intensive value chain the access to renewable feedstocks with drop-in solutions.
This article delves into the realm of mass balance and its transformative potential within the industry. We will explore its core principles, highlight the benefits it offers, and underscore the importance of collective action throughout the entire value chain.
