Material Flow Analysis (MFA)

We offer Material Flow Analysis (MFA) services to analyze, assess, and account for all the materials, stocks, goods, energy, and substances through a defined system for a responsible and efficient use of materials within production systems. We also offer MFA training programs as well.

MFA is a quantitative procedure to determine the flow of materials and energy across the economy. It uses I/O methodologies, including material and economic information. With MFA, we capture mass balances where inputs and outputs (consumption and accumulated waste) concern the materials’ ecological impacts. Following this MFA approach, a systematic assessment of the material flows and inventories in a well-defined system in space and time based on the law of conservation of mass is performed. Therefore, by examining if the material stream is sustainable concerning the environmental burden and resources, proper decisions or improvement actions can be taken. 

MFA has become necessary to close system cycles and reduce the amount of waste generated. It is essential in many industries and is becoming increasingly popular. It is one of the fundamental methods of sustainability assessment and industrial ecology tools. It is of great importance when evaluating sustainability-related topics. At DEISO, we seek to help companies make sustainable use of natural resources, create sustainable production processes, and optimize production systems.
