Is the bio-based content of importance for procurement purposes (tendering, contracts etc.)? The European standard EN 16785-1 specifies a method of determining the bio-based content in products, based on the radiocarbon analysis and elemental analysis. Do you know this standard/do you already use it? How do you determine bio-based content? Please share your experiences with us by leaving a message on this forum!
