Eligible Depots, Traders, and Retailers
Any type of biomass-based fuel is eligible for ISCC certification. ISCC recognizes all EU RED-approved biomass certifications, which provides increased flexibility for biofuel blenders and traders. High risk materials such as wastes certified by other schemes may be accepted by ISCC following an equivalency benchmark conducted by ISCC.
ISCC documents the production of bioenergy with a mass balance system along the complete supply chain – starting at the farm or plantation, towards the mineral oil companies, power plant-operators and other users.
To earn certification, a biofuel must:
- Have a reduced carbon footprint
- Meet minimum social, environmental and traceability criteria
- Avoid harvesting from highly biodiverse or carbon-rich areas
- Adhere to international fair labor practices
