ISCC Certification

Sustainability of supply and production chains for biodiesel, bioethanol, biogas and other biofuels

The production of renewable energies and fuels from biomass is gaining importance worldwide. In the Renewable Energy Directive (RED, 2009/28/EC), the EU created binding requirements for the sustainable production and processing of biomass for the European biofuels market. In German law, these requirements were implemented in the Biokraft-NachV, BioSt-NachV and BImSchV (37th and 38th). Biofuels from palm oil, rapeseed, sugar beet, grain or waste and residues such as used cooking oil account for the largest share of biofuels traded in Europe.

ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) certification ensures that the EU sustainability requirements for the cultivation of crops are met and that the entire supply chain can be traced back seamlessly: The ISCC certification ensures your access to the European biofuel market. In particular, points of overlap such as farms, land dealers, conversion plants, suppliers and warehouses are required to be certified according to ISCC.

ISCC is approved by the Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food (BLE) and the European Commission and is applied worldwide. GUTcert has been certified according to the ISCC standard in 2009 and has extensive experience in this field, also within the scope of international projects. With our accreditation by the Federal Institute for Agriculture and Food (BLE), certification of sustainable biofuels by GUTcert is officially recognised and also meets the highest standards of quality and integrity.
