First idea corresponding to Road-to-Bio = exchange of fossil raw materials for biobased / renewable raw materials.

Replacement of 30% fossil raw materials with renewable raw materials

Biobased ≠ Sustainable

DIN EN 16575: The biobased content of a product does not provide information on the environmental impact or sustainability; these can be assessed using life cycle assessments and sustainability criteria e.g. tank plate dilemma, palm (kernel) oil etc.

Renewable binders, hardeners and non-volatile additives increase C14 content / biomass balance in cured film

Only carbon content of cured paint film is considered; solvents and volatile additives replacement with NaWaRoh does NOT improve VOC content but does improve CO2 footprint and C14 content in liquid paint

CO2 footprint includes thr entire value chain: from renewable raw materials, recycled raw materials etc. to energy, production, disposal, logistics, employee mobility...

Determination of the CO2 footprint across the whole value chain as a tangible, comprehensive indicator, identification of reduction options, compensation of last, irreducible portions; consideration of the entire chain, not only ``thinking inside the box`` of only one part
