Slovenian KIMI d.o.o. first with a certified product


Testfakta Bio-based Europe is pleased to announce the first labelled product according to Testfakta Bio-based certification programme. Petrol Vitrex -38°, is a windscreen washer fluid based on a large proportion of renewable raw material and is produced by the Slovenian company KIMI d.o.o.

New ecolabel promotes bio-based production

Many products are made from materials originating from oil (petroleum) and other fossil resources. Testfakta Bio-based is a new environmental certification scheme, designed to encourage more consumers to opt for bio-based alternatives to conventional products. This helps to reduce climate impact and, in the long term, bring about a fossil-free society.

Many laundry detergents and fabric softeners are marketed as especially natural and sustainable. But some of these contain more fossil raw materials than ordinary laundry products, Testfakta’s analysis shows.
