International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a certification system dedicated to verifying fully traceable and deforestation free supply chains.
The system has been used widely in the biofuels sector to verify a range of feedstocks, from crops to waste. This has included UK producer Argent Energy, which produces biofuel from fats, oils and grease (FOG) waste.
Here, Biofuels International speaks with director of ISCC System Dr. Jan Henke about the process of biofuel sustainability certification, the changing legislative climate in the EU for biofuels, and the growth in the advanced biofuels sector.
Please introduce ISCC. What are your certifications for biofuels, and how are they tested?
ISCC is a global multi-stakeholder certification scheme for sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions. It covers all types of raw materials (biomass, wastes, residues, alternative feedstocks) and end products (bioenergy, chemicals, food, feed). ISCC implements deforestation-free supply chains, protects biodiversity and carbon stocks and includes environmental and social sustainability criteria. Actual GHG...
