Climbing towards sustainability.
With a mass balance approach we can speed up the shift from fossil to renewable sources without building wasteful parallel systems that wouldn’t benefit neither the environment or the economy.
Mass balance is a necessary strategy for the industry to switch from fossil to renewable and recyclable resources. For example, the polyethylene used to produce both Doxess Reborn and DX Reborn are based on a mass balance approach. In fact, the entire supply chain used to produce these stretch films are using a mass balance approach, which means that all steps meet traceability criteria and reduce negative environmental impacts.
In other words, that means a large amount of the polyethylene we use to manufacture these stretch films comes from residues of paper production. The forest from which we get our polyethylene is sustainably managed and located in Finland. Unlike other alternative renewable feedstocks, it does not compete with the human food chain, and no extra land is required for its production. Also, the stretch films made from this renewable feedstock are fully recyclable.

The polyethylene used to create both Doxess Reborn and DX Reborn are manufactured by Dow Chemicals and made possible by UPM.
