Testfakta Bio-based is a voluntary certification and labelling system for bio-based products, aimed at making it easier for consumers to choose goods made from renewable materials.
Fossil-based materials can often be replaced by bio-based alternatives. Clear and transparent labelling call attention to, and thus help to boost demand for bio-based alternatives and to raise the proportions of renewable raw materials in existing goods.
The certification rests partly on the findings from technical analysis of products’ carbon-based content, quantifying the proportion of organic carbon from renewable sources.
Testfakta Bio-based is a cooperation between Testfakta and RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden. RISE contributes technical expertise as well as analysis and investigation of the documentation relating to criteria. Testfakta Bio-based certifies and labels the products to confirm their bio-based properties.
Testfakta Bio-based is a company in the Testfakta group. Testfakta engages in independent testing and research and specialises in laboratory testing of products for consumers and commercial users.
