Only five steps towards ISCC certification

ISCC for energy

ISCC provides practical solutions for fully traceable and deforestation free supply chains, covering all feedstocks and markets

ISCC is a globally leading certification system covering the entire supply chain and all kinds of biobased feedstocks and renewables. With ISCC, companies can demonstrate their commitment towards environmentally and socially responsible production and sourcing of sustainable and deforestation free raw materials. ISCC applies strict rules, compensation for new plantings is not allowed.

ISCC has become a leading certification system for the growing market of biomethane. Landfill operations, biomethane producers, biomethane traders and further biomethane processors are already certified under ISCC. ISCC provides certification concepts for biomethane supply chains based on different feedstocks.

ISCC developed a concept for the certification of renewable fuels of non-biological origin. For example, companies that use electricity for fuel processing (e.g. via electrolysis) or technologies capturing CO2 for the fuel production can be certified under ISCC. Furthermore, ISCC is one of the leading systems for the certification of waste to fuels concepts. Companies processing municipal solid wastes, landfill gas or used car tires into fuels are using ISCC for proving compliance with sustainability requirements.

Processing residues and co-products from the wood-industry can be processed into biofuels. ISCC certifies and provides guidance on relevant requirements for wood-based bioenergy and their supply chains.

Site specific audits and certificates ensure full traceability along the supply chain. Each player can source sustainable products from any ISCC certificate holder.

ISCC certified companies have excellent opportunities to deliver into the global biofuels and energy sector

With ISCC, companies can demonstrate compliance with the legal requirements of

  • The Renewable Energy Directive (RED) of the European Commission
  • The Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) of the European Commission
  • The Liquid Fuel Supply Regulation of Queensland
  • The sustainability criteria of the biofuels mandate in Japan

ISCC provides possibilities to extend the certificate to specific market requirements

Additionally to the core requirements of ISCC, interested parties can choose from a set of voluntary add-ons, such as:
