Acquire third-party verification of biobased content for clients, suppliers, manufacturers, or distributors.
Promote biobased content in a way consumers can easily understand to increase product appeal and market share.
Obtain data that is vital during R&D phase of product development. Optimize biobased content over time and as fossil content is phased out.
Programs like the USDA Biopreferred, Vinçotte’s OK Biobased, DIN-Geprüft Biobased, or Braskem I’m Green require ASTM D6866 measurements. France’s decree 2016-379 requires single-use plastic bags to have a biobased content of at least 30 percent starting January 1, 2017. Biobased content testing should be done in accordance with ISO 16620-2.
Manufacturers and distributors need biobased content testing to determine how much of the carbon within their product is derived from biomass. Applicable to liquids, solids and gases, the Carbon-14 measurement shows how much biobased material has been used in the formulation of products instead of the more readily available and less expensive petroleum-based alternatives. The test quantifies the biobased content of a material but results do not have any implication on the material’s biodegradability.
The lab’s standard delivery time is only 3-5 business days. Results can be accessed online 24/7 with Quality Assurance reports and sample photos.
Since 1979, ISO 17025-accredited Beta Analytic has been the world leader in Carbon-14 analysis.
Beta Analytic has unparalleled expertise with complex biobased samples. Our service includes free unlimited technical consultation.
The lab does not accept pharmaceutical samples containing artificial Carbon-14 that risk cross-contaminating biobased measurements.
