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.
Bio-based content is the certification system, which 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 analysis.
Biobased content certification enables clear and transparent communication about the bio-based content of a product: not just bio-based carbon content, but also including the other elements Hydrogen, Oxygen and Nitrogen.
