Accelerator Mass Spectrometry for Bio-Based Products

Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) is part of Intertek’s portfolio of sustainability services, helping companies address their challenges in creating sustainable businesses. The service provides a solution for measuring renewable, bio-based content in carbon-based materials, such as fuels, packaging and other matrices. This will enable your business to more easily meet and report on corporate sustainability and social responsibility goals.

A ‘bio-based product’ is a commercial or industrial product (other than food or feed) that is composed, in whole or in part, of biological products or renewable agricultural (plant, animal and marine) or forestry materials.

Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) accurately measures renewable, bio-based content in carbon-based materials, such as fuels and packaging. Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) accelerates ions to extraordinarily high kinetic energies before mass analysis, giving it powerful strength to separate a rare isotope from an abundant neighboring mass. This ultra-sensitive technique makes it possible to detect naturally occurring, long-lived radio-isotopes such as carbon.

As part of Intertek’s portfolio of sustainability and social responsibility solutions, companies are provided with a single source to more easily meet and report on corporate sustainability and social responsibility goals.
