RSB expands scope to include biomaterials, not just biofuels

April 15, 2013 |

In Switzerland, following a decision during a recent meeting of the RSB Assembly of Delegates, the new name of the organization is “Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials”. The name change reflects RSB’s expansion of scope – a decision originally taken in 2010 – to apply its standards to biomass that is being used for other products in addition to biofuels. There is a large range of biomaterials including bio-plastics, cosmetics, food additives and bio-chemicals. Many producers sell their biomass into supply chains that cover biofuel and other biomaterials. By expanding our scope to cover biomaterials, this enables the RSB to promote sustainable production in a whole new range of products and markets.
