Germany's Kelheim Fibres receives USDA Certified Biobased Product label

KELHEIM, Germany, March 7, 2018-

The Bavarian Viscose speciality fibre manufacturer Kelheim Fibres has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product label. The products DANUFIL®, GALAXY® and VILOFT® are now able to display a unique USDA label that highlights their biobased origin.

Third-party verification is administered through the USDA BioPreferred® Program, an initiative created by the 2002 Farm Bill (expanded by the 2014 Farm Bill). One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of biobased products. Utilizing renewable, biobased materials displaces the need for non-renewable petroleum based chemicals.
