REDCert from SGS – guarantee the sustainability of your biomass with REDCert

The EU aims to increase the use of renewable energy by 20 per cent, with the use of biomass contributing a major share of this.  However, since July 2011, in Germany, you may only use sustainably generated biomass to generate power or fuel. The REDcert certification system proves that your biomass has been sustainably generated. The German Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food (BLE) has approved it for all production phases, from the farm through to the conversion facilities and right up to the supplier.
