Distinguish your biomass, bio-based fuels, advanced fuels, and advanced (non-fuel) products in the market by providing social and environmental assurance through certification to the Roundtable for Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) standard. The RSB standard recognizes biomass and biofuel producers and processors who adhere to stringent social responsibility and environmental stewardship criteria, reaching well above minimum levels of compliance established in the 2009 EU Directive.

Benefit from our three decades of environmental and sustainability certification experience. We were not only among the first certification bodies approved to perform third-party assessments under RSB's due diligence process, but also the first to achieve full accreditation by Assurance Services International (ASI). Rely on SCS' competitive rates, attentive service and value to accomplish your biomass or biofuel certification needs.
