October 28, 2011 |

In California, BioSolar, developer of a technology to produce bio-based materials from renewable plant sources that reduce the cost of photovoltaic solar modules, today reported that the company received the long awaited provisional Relative Thermal Index recognition from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for its BioBacksheet. RTI is the temperature below which a material will not be compromised by long term thermally induced chemical degradation.

UL certification is required for all electronic products and components, such as solar panels, prior to their sale in the general marketplace.
