NEN bio-based content

SINCE NOVEMBER 2016

NEN BIO-BASED CONTENT

This certification system is based on the European standard EN 16785-1 which enables independent assessment of claims on the bio-based content of products. Bio-based content refers to biomass, not only to biobased carbon.

The certification system applies to basic materials, intermediate and finished products. Also to all solid, liquid and gaseous products containing carbon, ie a wide range of products.

Suppliers can use certificates and labels to demonstrate that they comply with these requirements.

NEN BIO-BASED CONTENT - SINCE NOVEMBER 2016

The European system for bio-based content certification is launched at the Eleventh Annual European Bioplastics Conference in Berlin, with bioplastics being a certification area.
