In January 2023, Solvay debuted the first International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS Certified mass balance vanillin. The mass balance concept according to the ISCC PLUS principles has become a globally acknowledged industry standard that provides a defined set of rules for tracking and tracing the content of circular and renewable feedstock in materials and end products. 

Perfumer & Flavorist+ managing editor Jenna Rimensnyder is joined by Solvay Aroma Performance, Naturals Marketing manager, Maud Joassard to discuss how mass balance differs from other sourcing methods, what it means for an ingredient to be mass balance certified and advantages for companies utilizing mass balance ingredients in their formulations.
