BS EN 16766:2017

Bio-based solvents. Requirements and test methods

Status : Current   Published : November 2017



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.
