ISCC EU is the leading certification system recognized by the European Commission for compliance with the requirements of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) for the sustainable production of biofuels and biomass, as well as for the market for biomass and biofuels for food and non-food uses, and its trading chain, and is a mandatory certification for access to the EU energy market.
The types of products that can be certified by ISCC EU include, but are not limited to:
- Biomass fuels such as biodiesel, bioethanol and biomethane
- Bio-based chemicals such as bio-based polyester and bio-based polyurethane
- Food uses and feed ingredients such as soybeans, palm oil, and corn
- Wood and pulp, such as soft woods such as fir and spruce, paper and pulp
- Biofuels and thermal energy, such as biomass fuels and biothermal energy, etc
Scope of Application
Sustainable fuels used for transport, electricity, heating and cooling and the production of electricity, heating and cooling from biomass in the European Union. Covering biofuels, bioliquids, biomass fuels, advanced fuels, low ilUC risk fuels, RFNBOs* and recycled carbon fuels*.
ISCC EU certification can help you get:
- Recognised by the European Commission (EC) to demonstrate compliance with the sustainability and GHG emission saving criteria of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII)
- Recognised by the United Kingdom under the renewable transport fuel obligation (RTFO).
- Recognised under the Liquid Fuel Supply Regulation of Queensland, Australia.
Who is it for?
- Agricultural and forest biomass, waste and residues (including agricultural, aquaculture, fisheries and forestry residues), lignocellulosic and non-food cellulosic materials for the production of biofuels, bioliquids and biomass fuels, including advanced biofuels and biogas for transport of the RED II) and biofuels, bioliquids and biomass fuels with a low risk or a high risk of indirect land-use change (iLUC).
- Liquid and solid waste streams of non-renewable origin or waste processing and exhaust gas of non-renewable origin for the production of recycled carbon fuels.
- Energy derived from renewable sources other than biomass for the production of renewable liquid and gaseous transport fuels of nonbiological origin.
