The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced that POWERply® Endure™ BIO adhesive from Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance has received the Certified Biobased Product label.

“We're proud to see POWERply Endure BIO adhesive earn this recognition from the USDA,” said Kurt Sosinski, market manager. “This product is made of 71% biobased material and has an ultra-low level of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which helps make it virtually odor free and meet California VOC limits.”

The USDA Certified Biobased Product label displays a product's biobased content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstocks. Using renewable, biobased materials displaces the need for non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals. Biobased products, through petroleum displacement, have reportedly played an increasingly important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that exacerbate global climate change.
