Why RBO is needed?
Strict sustainability and certification rules apply to all biofuels according to the principles of the “RED” Directive 2009/28. However, there is now a widely recognised and urgent need to increase the level of certification of the origination of raw materials used for extra-incentivised biofuels produced from wastes, residues, non-food cellulosic material and ligno-cellulosic material. Equally, the traceability of the extra incentivised biofuels and their raw materials does not provide the degree of certainty that a fair and reliable market requires.
The RBO Consortium intends to build up a simple and solid international system in order to solve these problems.
