    Eastman TREVA Got the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label

Eastman Chemical Company, the world’s leading producer of cellulosic materials showcased Eastman TREVA at Bio-Based Live. TREVA, a breakthrough in engineering bioplastics designed to help companies overcome the trade-off between sustainability and performance, recently received its USDA Certified Biobased Product Label from the United States Department of Agriculture's BioPreferred® program. This certification verified that TREVA GC6011 has a biobase content of 45 percent and TREVA GC6021 has a bio base content of 42 percent. TREVA offers a combination of thermoplastic properties and performance, design flexibility — and price — that other bioplastics cannot match.

Certified material

The cellulose in TREVA is sourced exclusively from reputable suppliers holding internationally recognized certifications attesting to their sustainable forest management practices. Free of BPA and phthalates, TREVA stands up better than other engineering thermoplastics to some of the harshest chemicals including skin oils, sunscreens and household cleaners.
