Government-Mandated Purchasing

USDA's Biopreferred Program

The BioPreferred Program was created by the 2002 Farm Bill and reauthorized and expanded in the 2018 Farm Bill. The Program's purpose is to spur economic development, create new jobs, and create new markets for farm commodities.

  • Opens Heartland And Partners To Billions In Mandated Purchasing

Biomaterials Throughout The Government

Certified Materials For Lower Carbon Footprint Products

Heartland's materials fulfill mandatory purchasing requirements for federal agencies and their contractors.

The increased development, purchase, and use of bio-based products reduce our nation's reliance on petroleum, increase the use of renewable agricultural resources, and contribute to reducing adverse environmental and health impacts.

No Retooling Costs

For Our Biopreferred Materials

Heartland supplies lower-carbon-footprint materials to help manufacturers create stronger, lighter, cheaper, and more sustainable products.

Augmenting Mined & Synthetic Additives

Unlocking The Sustainable Future We Need And Deserve

Heartland's materials replace and augment additives like talc, calcium carbonate, fiberglass, and carbon black.

We work with global brands and their suppliers to predictably reduce the carbon footprint of everyday products without any retooling costs.

Your Sustainability Partner

Throughout The Supply Chain


Heartland partners with corn, wheat, and soy farmers to embed industrial hemp into their crop rotation. Our USDA Grant has given us unique insights into industrial hemp farming, regenerative agriculture, and carbon sequestration.


Heartland partners with plastic compounders to augment talc, calcium, and glass without any retooling costs. Our Imperium masterbatch solves dust, flammability, bonding, and bulk density problems typically associated with bio-based additives.


Heartland partners with plastic converters to ensure the hemp-filled resin is processed properly. Our team works alongside component part manufacturers to process natural fiber-filled plastic with the same molds used today.


Heartland is the sustainability partner for brands on their journey to reduce their carbon footprint. Our team helps create stakeholder alignment so companies can effectively communicate the value of sustainable material innovation.
