Certification according to ISCC EU is certification based on specific sustainability criteria. It covers the requirements of Directive 2009/28 / EC (Renewable Energy Directive) and concerns the entire supply chain of biofuels.
The basic legal framework is the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) 2009/28 / EC, which sets a target of 10% use of renewable energy sources in transport by 2020. In addition, specific sustainability criteria are set for biofuels, with the main achievement being a reduction greenhouse gas emissions by at least 35% in relation to fossil fuels.
It concerns all parameters of the biofuel supply chain and in particular:
- Central collection points (eg used frying oils).
- Biofuel processing and production plants.
- Merchants - warehouses.
These biofuels can be:
- Waste of biological origin, e.g. used frying oils, animal fats, fish oil, etc.
- Agricultural origin.
- Animal origin.
