Teragren announces it has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label for their complete line of bamboo building products. The USDA Certified Biobased Product Label verifies that the products’ amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds prescribed USDA levels. Biobased products are goods composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry, or marine materials. Teragren’s bamboo products tested at the following levels, by category: PureForm Traditional Bamboo Flooring with 99% biobased content; Xcora Strand Bamboo Flooring with 94% biobased content; Bamboo Worktops with 99% biobased content; PureForm Traditional Bamboo Veneer with 99% biobased content; and Architectural Bamboo Panels with 99% biobased content. All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA, says the company. Teragren estimates the Biobased label will be on certified Teragren products and available to consumers by early 2013.
