The fact that (and to what percentage) a product or a material is biobased can be indicated by respective labels. Ideally, meaningful labels should be based on harmonised standards and a corresponding certification process by independent third-party institutions. For the property biobased such labels are in place by certifiers DIN CERTCO and Vinçotte who both base their certifications on the technical specification as described in [4,5] A certification and corresponding label depicting the biobased mass content was developed by the French Association Chimie du Végétal [ACDV].
