Biobased Products Day

March 8th is the second annual National Biobased Products Day in the U.S.! This is a great time to reflect on the increasing number of opportunities to replace petroleum-based products with renewable materials for greater sustainability. At Cortec®, we are proud to facilitate this shift with a growing portfolio of USDA Certified Biobased Products.

For decades, Cortec® has been looking for ways to reduce environmental impact while effectively fighting corrosion. When the voluntary labeling initiative of the USDA BioPreferred® Program* came along, it was a perfect match for Cortec’s environmental ingenuity. Cortec® was one of the first 500 companies to receive a USDA Certified Biobased Product label after the program was launched in 2011 and is therefore considered a BioPreferred® Program Pioneer. Since then, Cortec® has built a portfolio of more than 40 USDA Certified Biobased Products that enable users to take a more sustainable approach to a variety of everyday industrial activities. Here are some examples:

Today, we are surrounded by encouragement to take better care of our planet. One of the simplest ways to do so is by switching to biobased products for everyday tasks. Join us in celebrating National Biobased Products Day by thinking of at least one new way to add renewable materials to your normal routine. Contact us if you need help exploring your biobased options!
