Teragren Bamboo Surfacing Products Earn BioPreferred Status

Posted on 14 March 2013 by cradmin

Teragren, manufacturer of bamboo panels, veneer and worktops, earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label for its full line of bamboo building products. The label verifies that the amount of renewable biobased ingredients in the materials meets or exceeds prescribed USDA levels. Biobased products are goods composed with agricultural, forestry or marine materials. The purpose of the USDA BioPreferred program is to promote the increased purchase and use of biobased products to reduce petroleum consumption, increase the use of renewable resources, better manage the carbon cycle, and may contribute to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.

The bamboo products tested at 99 percent biobased content levels include:  Bamboo Worktop, PureForm Traditional Bamboo Veneer and Architectural Bamboo Panels. The BioPreferred Program includes a preferred procurement program for federal agencies and their contractors, who are required to give preferential consideration to USDA biobased designated product categories when making purchases.
