With the REDcert-certified biomass balance (BMB) approach, fossil resources needed to produce the styrenic foams can be replaced 100% by renewable raw materials. This production method saves valuable resources while reducing the CO2 impact. The biomass-balanced products Styropor® BMB, Neopor® BMB and Styrodur® BMB protect the environment and climate without sacrificing the usual quality: This is because they are unchanged from their fossil counterparts in terms of formulation and properties.
The use of renewable raw materials reduces the carbon footprint of Neopor® BMB by 90% compared to traditionally produced Neopor®.
The central CO2 saving of Neopor® results during its many years of use as insulation boards on the facade, reducing the energy required to heat or cool buildings and thus simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

During the production of Styrodur® BMB, BASF avoids 67% CO2 emissions compared to conventional production.
The technical properties of the biomass-balanced sheets remain the same as those of conventional Styrodur®.
