Demonstrate your compliance with the European Renewable Energy Directive requirements for sustainable biomass and bioenergy production with the ISCC EU system, and chemical recycling and Circular Economy with the ISCC+ system. ISCC EU certification provides proof of compliance with environmental, social and traceability criteria, and qualifies biomass or biofuel companies for legal recognition under the targets set by European regulations for transportation fuels, whereas ISCC+ is developed for non-energy applications.

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 Criteria

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
