Sustainability, Environment and Safety

The EU Directive 2009/28/EC (the Renewable Energy Sources or "RED” directive) concerning the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources sets targets on energy consumption and defines sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids including the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Since January 2012, compliance with sustainability criteria for biofuels has been mandatory in Italy, as provided for in Legislative Decree No. 28 of 3 March 2011 implementing the RED Directive.

Ecofuel has developed a Biofuel Sustainability Management System in accordance with the requirements of the RED Directive and has obtained the certification of sustainable products according to the ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) standard and the National Certification Scheme, which are recognised by the European Commission. The Sustainability Management System applies to the production of bio-ETBE/bio-MTBE from bio-ethanol/bio-methanol and to marketing and storage activities and is designed to ensure the traceability of information associated with each product batch and the preservation of sustainability characteristics along the respective part of the supply chain.
