USDA BioPreferred® Program
BBT is also part of the USDA BioPreferred Program. Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the goal of BioPreferred is to increase the purchase
and use of biobased products.
To date, the USDA has nearly 100 categories of biobased products listed in the BioPreferred Catalog, such as chemicals, carpet, paints and coatings, insulation, packaging, bedding, composite panels, sporting goods, and more.
The BioPreferred Program is designed to assist companies and consumers identify verified products
made with a significant amount of biocontent.
The federal government and federal contractor market represent billions of dollars in purchases annually.
And federal agencies and contractors must follow Mandatory Federal Purchasing requirements to purchase biobased products within the listed USDA categories. By incorporating certified BBT polyols, systems or blends into your products, BioBased Technologies can assist you with opening doors to federal purchasing opportunities.
