RSB members approve new standard for advanced products

December 15, 2018 |

In Switzerland, members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials approved their new Advanced Products Standard, calling it “groundbreaking.” The new standard was “The culmination of over 18 months of consultation, expert working groups and member dialogue,” and “provides the most robust set of sustainability requirements and criteria for the certification of non-energy products (including textiles, packaging, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and plastics),” according to their press release. “For the first time, products from recycled carbon and non-biogenic waste will be able to carry real and credible sustainability claims.”

“The new RSB standard for Advanced Products will be a critical standard supporting both the development of a circular and bio-based economy. It is unique in that it covers a broad range of possible feedstocks and supply chain options including bio-based products, carbon recycling and the use of bio-based feedstocks in complex integrated production systems and supply chains,” Said Dr. Susanne Veith, EU Government Affairs Manager, DowDuPont Specialty Products (DuPont) Division.
