The initial two offerings, Irganox® 1010 BMBcert™ and Irganox® 1076 FD BMBcert™, are certified by TÜV Nord for mass balance according ISCC Plus standards.

These industry-first solutions support the use of renewable feedstock to replace fossil feedstock and help BASF’s customers meet their sustainability targets.
The BMBcert offerings contribute to a reduction in fossil feedstock demand. At the beginning of the value chain, fossil-based raw material is replaced by ISCC-certified bio-based feedstock and a corresponding amount is attributed to the product according to a mass balance approach.
Via the attribution of these sustainably sourced renewable feedstocks, the product’s cradle-to-gate carbon footprint is significantly reduced by up to 60 per cent, compared to the global average product carbon footprint of conventional grades.
The certified additives thus contribute to sustainable development by saving fossil resources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and advancing the use of renewable feedstock.
This unique solution enables customers to differentiate their products from the competition and helps them achieve their sustainability goals; all without compromising on performance and quality.
The solutions are drop-in replacements for Irganox 1010 and 1076. They offerings are identical to conventional grades in performance, quality and product stewardship and regulatory aspects. As a result, customers do not need to requalify the new additives or reformulate their products.
“By leveraging BASF’s highly integrated global production network of interconnected sites and plants, we are able to produce these industry-first, low carbon footprint, drop-in solutions with the same performance characteristics,” said Joerg Bentlage, head of Global Product Management and Plastic Additives at BASF.
“As we advance our own journey to a more circular economy, we aim to drive a sustainable transformation towards renewable feedstock within the industries we serve through innovative and strategic customer partnerships,” Bentlage added.
The two solutions will initially be produced at BASF’s site in Switzerland, with additional availability of Irganox 1010 FF BMBcert and Irganox 1076 FD BMBcert from McIntosh in the United States in early 2024.
