CRATIV PB has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Label. This label displays a product's bio-based content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source such as plant or forestry feedstocks. Utilizing renewable, biobased materials displaces the need for non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals. In CRATIV PB’s case we achieved a level of 57% biobased carbon content, well above the certification threshold for packaging. This means that ASTM D6866-21 testing showed that 57% of the PB material is made from renewable bio-based sources.
Utilizing renewable, bio-based materials displaces the need for petroleum-based materials, thus playing an increasingly important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
USDA Statement: "Products from CRATIV Solutions, Inc. are contributing to an ever-expanding marketplace that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities, and decreases our reliance on petroleum." - Vernell Thompson, USDA Biopreferred Program.
