Global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission levels are increasing more than our globe can cope with, therefore demand for and production of sustainable biomasses and biofuels are increasing rapidly. The future energy supply can depend on the sustainable production of biofuels.
To prove sustainable production of biomasses and biofuels, certification is an effective way of demonstrating traceability of biofuel and biomass products throughout the supply chain. The ISCC and REDcert standards focus on reducing greenhouse gases throughout the value chain, sustainable land use, land use change, protection of nature and social sustainability for commodity production. Based on the RED Directive EU directive 2009/28 / EF changed through Directive 2015/1513. ISCC and REDcert require a minimum greenhouse gas emission saving of 60% from January 2018. All biomasses and ready-to-use fuel must also comply with the sustainability principles. ISCC EU is a wordwide standard while REDcert can only be obtained within the EU borders.
ISCC PLUS includes certification that can cover all types of agricultural and forestry raw materials, food, chemical / technical substances, bio-based products and other areas where practical use of biomass is possible.
As an example ISCC and REDcert auditing could review the following topics: Document review of the company’s quality management system:

Baltic Control® Certification specializes in sustainability certification of companies in the energy sector.The prerequisite for such a sustainability certificate is that a company is subject to a legal requirement for documentation that affects all parts of the value chain. For example, you must document that your production does not harm or damage natural areas.
”Since January 2009, Baltic Control® Certification has had the task of controlling the Danish pig herds. They are very serious and professional” says Asger Kjær Nielsen, Quality Manager for DANISH Product Standard at SEGES Knowledge Center for Pig Production
