RSB agrees to “extra credit” for low ILUC risk biofuels

March 25, 2013 |

In Switzerland, the Roundtable of Sustainable Biofuels’ Assembly of Delegates held on March 18 agreed to include an optional add-on certificate to RSB certification identifying biofuels that pose a low risk to creating ILUC. The vote by the different chambers agreed 18 to 3 in favor of including the LIIB methodology developed by Ecofys as an “extra credit.” The vote was held in light of RSB’s desire to respond to the ILUC debate that is currently going on in Europe. RSB is one of more than a dozen voluntary schemes recognized by the European Commission certifying compliance with the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive.
