Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 November 2017
Status: active
Page Count: 24
ICS Code (Solvents): 87.060.30
ICS Code (Biobased products): 13.020.55
scope:

This European Standard sets the requirements for bio-based solvents in terms of their bio-based content, their technical properties and test methods. It lays down the characteristics and details for assessment of bio-based solvents that:

- are fit for purpose in terms of performance related properties;

- comply with the health, safety and environmental requirements which apply generally to solvents; and

- are derived from biomass.

This European Standard specifies solvent classes, based on the percentage of bio-based carbon content and bio-based content.

NOTE EN 16575 defines the term "bio-based" as derived from biomass and clarifies that "bio-based" does not imply "biodegradable". In addition, "biodegradable" does not necessarily imply the use of "bio-based" material.

In addition, this document sets requirements on information to be provided regarding sustainability aspects.
