Sateri achieved the certification based on verification by an accredited third-party body and strictly monitored by the USDA.
Bio-based products are materials whose content is made in whole or in significant part from renewable agricultural, marine or forestry ingredients. Sateri’s VSF is made from renewable wood cellulose. Natural and biodegradable, its products provide an alternative to conventional petroleum-derived products, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and consequently adverse impact on the environment.
“We are proud that Sateri is one of the first few producers in the viscose fibre industry to have our products formally recognised by the USDA,” said Ben Poon, Sateri’s senior vice president-Commercial. “This recognition underscores our commitment to produce viscose staple fibre in a sustainable manner, from responsible raw material sourcing to responsible product manufacturing, and help our customers and their clients to meet the market’s increasing preference for renewable and sustainable products.”
“We applaud Sateri for earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product label,” said Kate Lewis of USDA BioPreferred Programme. “Products from Sateri are contributing to an ever-expanding marketplace that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities, and decreases our reliance on petroleum.”
This most recent accolade adds another layer of accountability and integrity to the sustainability attributes of Sateri’s products, which have already been proven to be free from harmful substances and certified to the Swiss-based STANDARD 100 by Oeko-Tex. (RKS)
