“Plastic” refers to a material processed and formed with high molecular weight synthetic resin as the main component, along with appropriate additives such as plasticizers, stabilizers, antioxidants, flame retardants, additives, colorants, etc. Starting around the mid-20th century, people found they could not live without “plastic” materials, and unknowingly entered the unprecedented “plastic era”.
Although plastic brings us many conveniences in life, it also brings the problem of plastic waste, which is one of the biggest impacts brought by mankind on the environment. Different types of plastics take different lengths of time to decompose in the natural environment. PE plastic bags decompose in about 10-12 years, nylon cloth and plastic bottles need 30-50 years, and PVC will last forever.
Nowadays, more and more people are paying attention to environmental issues, and many consumer product brands and manufacturers are constantly developing and researching environmentally friendly products, such as plastics made of plant-based or biodegradable materials. This trend has gradually affected the well-known large brands. In recent years, many sports shoe brands have launched bio-based shoes, including Nike and Anta, which have used bio-based materials transformed from coffee grounds or bamboo to make their shoes. However, do you know what a biobased material is?
Biobased /bioplastics are plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable oils, corn starch, pea starch, or microbiota. Common plastics such as petroleum-based plastics are refined from petroleum. These plastics rely more on fossil fuels and generate more greenhouse gases. Some but not all bioplastics are biodegradable. Bioplastics can be composed of a variety of materials, including starch, cellulose, or other biopolymers. Some common applications of bioplastics include packaging materials, tableware, food packaging, and medical materials.
Testing companies can test the percentage of bio-based carbon compared to fossil carbon in a final product in accordance with ASTM D 6866 – “Standard Test Methods for Determining the Bio-based Content in Solid, Liquid, and Gas Samples Using Radiocarbon Analysis”. A bio-based value of 75% means that 75% of the organic matter in the product is bio-based and 25% is petroleum-based.
Our certification mark for your biobased products
With the successful completion of the testing and the positive conformity assessment of the submitted application documents, we issue you a certificate and you receive the right to use the “DIN-Geprüft biobased” certification mark as well as the corresponding registration number.
Depending on the proportion of biobased carbon, the quality levels are classified as follows:
Your certificate has a validity of six years and can be extended through corresponding monitoring, supplementary and special tests and assessments as well as a request for extension. If your biobased product is compostable, you can also confirm this with our compostable mark.
As experienced experts, we are the right partner for the impartial testing and certification of your biobased products. Our globally recognized certification marks ensure that you obtain the trust of the markets as well as your customers.
塑膠雖然帶給我們許多生活上的便利，但也帶來塑膠垃圾的問題，是人類帶給環境最大的衝擊之一。不同種類的塑膠，在自然環境下所需分解的時間也不同， PE 塑膠袋大概 10-12 年可以分解，尼龍布跟塑膠瓶需要 30-50 年，至於 PVC 則會永世長存。
檢測機構可以根據ASTM D 6866 –“使用放射性碳分析測定固體，液體和氣體樣品中生物基含量的標準測試方法”測定最終產品中所含新生物基碳與化石碳的比例。 75%的生物基值就意味著產品的有機物質中，75%是生物基和25%是石油基。
