RheTech, Inc., a thermoplastics compounder supplying the transportation, construction, electronics and consumer markets, announces that it has received accreditation for the USDA BioPreferred product label for certified biobased products.
RheTech is one of the first 100 companies to receive this accreditation, which requires that biobased products be composed entirely or significantly from agricultural ingredients. The new label will make it easier for Federal buyers to identify these products and will provide RheTech with preferred supplier status within the Federal government and other markets. The independently certified program and labels will also increase consumer awareness of RheTech’s high-value and ecologically-friendly products.
“We are very enthusiastic about being accepted into the BioPreferred program,” says Jim Preston, vice president of Strategic Growth at RheTech. “Being one of the first companies to get material accreditation helps to further reinforce RheTech’s long-standing commitment to the environment, and opens up a whole new market for us within the federal government.”
