Bio-based products are products which are wholly or partly derived from biomass. Therefore, it is essential to characterize the amount of biomass contained in the product.
The European bio-based content certification scheme is used to specify and validate the amount of biomass in a bio-based product, based on the European standard EN 16785-1:2015. This European standard provides a method of determining the bio-based content of solid, liquid and gaseous products using the radiocarbon analysis and elemental analyses.
Bio-based content certification enables transparent and credible communication about the bio-based content of a product in the business-to-business and business-to-consumer communication, which not only involves the bio-based carbon content, but also the other elements hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen.
