GoodFuels Marine nabs highest sustainability rating from RSB

January 24, 2016 |

In the Netherlands, GoodFuels Marine received the highest standard of certification from the Roundtable of Sustainable Biomaterials, enabling the company to actively sell and promote RSB-certified biofuels to the shipping industry.

Netherlands-based GoodFuels Marine and its partners, Boskalis, the leading global dredging and marine expert and Wärtsilä, the global supplier of engines and power systems to the marine industry, announced in October a two-year pilot program to accelerate the development of truly sustainable, scalable and affordable “drop in” marine biofuels for the commercial shipping industry.

The certification, which assesses the sustainable viability of the biomaterials used by GoodFuels to generate marine bunker fuel, has been awarded for two years. RSB has defined 12 principles to which biomaterials have to comply to be seen as sustainable and thereby eligible for the RSB stamp of approval, including the levels of CO2 reduction, human rights impacts and legal criteria.

The certification follows an audit of GoodFuels Marine, conducted by Control Union, a global network of inspection operations and dedicated laboratories, and illustrates GoodFuels’ recognition for a globally accepted and standardized certification scheme that checks and guarantees the sustainability of biofuels to the highest standards.
