Mass balancing

Mass balancing is an accounting method that indicates the percentage of a particular raw material (e.g. recyclate) used for the manufacture of products within a specific balance sheet area. However, the exact physical proportion of recyclates in the end product cannot be precisely determined.

At uvex

At uvex, mass-balanced material is used for the lens of the uvex pheos nxt planet, for example. This reduces the CO2 footprint of the lens by 24%. By purchasing 100% mass-balanced polycarbonate, uvex is helping to replace fossil raw materials with bio-based or recycled materials.
