In 2019, the Borregaard product Dustex® earned the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product Label, with 100% biobased content.
Third-party verification for a product’s bio-based content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred® Program. One goal of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of bio-based products.
The USDA Certified Biobased Product label displays a product's bio-based content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine and forestry feedstocks. Bio-based products have played an increasingly important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that increase global climate change.
