The regulatory framework for the application and calculation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is subject to changes. This is due to the recent amendment of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) as well as to the note of the European Commission on conducting and verifying actual calculations of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission savings. Further amendments of the ISCC requirements on GHG calculations were required due to the re-recognition of ISCC.

This is of high relevance since the individual GHG performance has been established as competitive factor that influences prices and demand of different biofuels and materials. Thus, individual GHG calculation, verification and certification is very important for many companies. This also applies for other sectors, such as the food and biochemical sector, where companies increasingly exploit their GHG saving potentials along the supply chain from agricultural production to final products.

The 1.5-day ISCC Greenhouse Gas Training covers in detail the methodological requirement for GHG calculations and verifications along the supply chain and provides practical examples of calculations and audits of calculators. A particular focus will be on the new GHG requirements according to the amended RED and the note from the Commission. In practical case studies the application of the new requirements and options will be shown. ISCC experts will be available throughout the training for individual discussion.

Benefits at a glance

  • Deepen your understanding of GHG requirements and GHG calculation along the supply chain within the ISCC System
  • Strenghten your understanding of implications of using actual values or default values
  • Become familar with calculation methodology, data requirements and sources from farm level to the final market
