Surface active agents - Bio-based surfactants - Requirements and test methods

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 September 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 20
ICS Code (Surface active agents): 71.100.40
scope:

This document sets requirements for bio-based surfactants in terms of properties, limits, application classes and test methods. It lays down the characteristics and details for assessment of bio-based surfactants as to whether they:

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

- comply with the requirements regarding the health, safety and environment which apply to general surfactants;

- are derived from a certain minimum percentage of biomass;

- comply with at least similar sustainability criteria as comparable (non-bio-based) surfactants.

The criteria of the regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) [13] also apply to bio-based surfactants.

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.
