An article about ASTM D6866 testing is now available at Agrobiobase.com, an online database listing commercial biobased products around the world. Maintained and supported by the competitiveness cluster Industries & Agro-Resources (IAR), the website contains a directory of bioproducts and the companies producing them. As of February 2014, the database features more than 250 products and is viewed by 3,000 visitors monthly. More than 200 contacts between customers and suppliers were generated by the website in 2013.
Aside from articles and studies, Agrobiobase.com also posts the latest industry news including features on new biobased products available in the market as well as regulatory updates. The website is available in French and English.
The main database is divided into two sections – biomaterials and biochemicals. Supplier info and technical data on bioproducts like bioplastics, biopolymers, natural fibers, and biocomposites, can be found in the Biomaterials database. Suppliers and technical data of biosolvents, biosurfactants, biolubricants, chemical intermediates, resins, and other biobased ingredients can be found in the biochemicals database.
Agrobiobase.com also publishes a newsletter which highlights a product in the database, provides a summary of the latest industry news, and lists the suppliers that have registered in the website. Site visitors can subscribe to the newsletter for free.
Companies may register their biobased products in Agrobiobase.com free of charge until October 2011. They can add their company profiles, technical data, and contact details in Agrobiobase.com by creating an account.
