BioBased Products and the USDA BioPreferred Program

BioBased Oil used for BioPreferred Products


6R Supply supports the use of BioBased Products and the USDA BioPreferred program.


Our purpose is to introduce products that are biobased and that use little, and in most cases no, petroleum based products.  Therefore most of our products are labelled under the BioPreferred Labeling Program of BioBased Products. Please contact us regarding how our product selection fits into your BioBased Purchasing Requirements.

The USDA BioPreferred programs mission: 

"The purpose of the USDA BioPreferred® program is to promote the increased purchase and use of biobased products. The program spurs economic development -- creating new jobs and providing new markets for farm commodities. The increased development, purchase, and use of biobased products reduces our Nation's reliance on petroleum, increases the use of renewable agriculture resources, and may contribute to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts. "

6R Supply’s bio-based products contain renewable oils and additives that are designed for industrial processes that perform as well as, in most cases better than, conventional petroleum-based formulas. Biobased product performance has been demonstrated throughout industry across many commercial applications. An analysis released by the USDA and the BioPreferred Program entitled, “An Economic Impact Analysis of the U.S. Biobased Products Industry”, demonstrates that bio-based industries and products demonstrated a positive effect on the economy.  In 2013, bio-based industries contributed 4M US jobs and added $369B to the economy. The report also show that for each job related to bio-based products, 1.64 more jobs were created. This report reinforces 6R Supply’s goal to establish an easy to use purchasing option for BioBased products and BioPreferred Labelled industrial products.
