Sustainability and biofuels

11/08/2011 / Kaj

The Dutch government has granted temporary acceptance to four biofuel sustainability systems from July 1 to December 31, 2011.

– The four systems are:
– Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS)
– International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC)
– NTA 8080/8081
– BioGrace

Companies that have an obligation to bring biofuels to the Dutch market must prove that the biofuels meet EU sustainability requirements. In order to demonstrate sustainability, they may only use sustainable systems that have been approved for this purpose by the European Commission, or (temporarily) accepted by the Dutch government. Temporary Dutch acceptance can be given to sustainability systems that have been registered for assessment by the European Commission, or which have been approved by another EU Member State.
