Why Certified Materials?


The RMS has worked with industry leaders to develop two independent tracking system options supported by third party auditing integration to ensure that all use of recycled materials adhere to robust standards to close the chain of custody loop.

Applying Mass Balance to Recycled Materials

Mass balance claims use an accounting process (sometimes referred to as a credit system) to assign claims to particular product batches. The allocation can be made at different equivalencies to help support customer needs. The flexibility afforded by mass balance accounting enables market growth for both mechanical and chemical recycling pathways.
