According to Reverdia, the label verifies that the product's amount of renewable bio-based ingredients meets or exceeds levels set by USDA. Bio-based products are finished or intermediate materials composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry, or marine ingredients. The label verifies that Biosuccinium bio-succinic acid is 99 % bio-based, says Reverdia. Bio-succinic acid has applications in a variety of markets, such as biopolymers, polyurethanes, resins and plasticisers for end products including footwear, paint and packaging. Marcel Lubben, President of Reverdia said, "Reverdia is committed to developing the bio-based market so we're very proud to display this certification on Biosuccinium, the most sustainable choice of bio-succinic acid, commercially produced from non-GMO feedstocks. According to the manufacturer, all bio-based amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA. Consumers should feel secure in the accuracy of the bio-based amount and be empowered in making better informed purchasing decisions, says Reverdia. "We are proud that Reverdia has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label, said Ron Buckhalt, USDA BioPreferred Program Manager. "Biobased products add value to renewable agriculture commodities, create jobs in rural communities and help decrease reliance on non-renewable petroleum.
