Standardization report on bio-based product testing

Report on functionality testing for demonstrating the functionality of novel Bio-based Products. For this research, 7 key product categories were selected for testing;

1. Packaging Films

2. Disposable cups & plates

3. WPC decking

4. Pre manufactured components/insulation

5. Mulch films

6. Adhesives and binders

7. Bio-solvents

Key mechanical properties, key chemical/thermal parameters and additional functionalities that ensure the functionality of the bio-based project over its entire product life were defined. This implies testing before and after use or before and after ageing.

Additionally, specific characteristics of the bio-based products that differ from existing petrochemical products were addressed.

In each product category commercially available bio-based products have been selected for functionality testing.
