USDA launches new biobased product Label

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has launched a voluntary product certification for biobased commercial and industrial products.

The “USDA Certified Biobased Product” label will designate products, other than food and feed, that derive a certain proportion of their materials from biological sources.

Product categories under the initiative include personal and institutional cleaning products, construction products, and lubricants and greases.
