ISCC-EU Certified Company

Prutul has ISCC-EU Sustainability Certificates for grain trading and vegetable oil production activities, granted by SGS Germany, in accordance with the requirements of RED (Directive 2009/28/EC) on the promotion of the use of renewable energy.

Sustainability or sustainable development is a concept that promotes the development of society in a responsible way, without depleting available resources and without destroying the environment, so as not to compromise the possibilities of meeting the needs of future generations. The World Conference on the Environment in Rio de Janeiro (since 1992) paid particular attention to this concept, which involves balancing economic growth and environmental protection and finding alternative resources.

“ISCC” is a globally applicable certification system that differentiates between sustainable and unsustainable products, including greenhouse gas emissions, at different stages of the value chain. In order to qualify for this certification scheme, the bio liquids and biofuels produced must ensure a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of at least 35%.

The legally registered ISCC Association is the body responsible for the ISCC system. All those involved in the production, processing and use of sustainable biomass can join this association.

Sustainability certificates shall be issued by independent certification bodies upon successful completion of audits. Certificates are documents confirming that the owner of the certificate complies with the requirements of red (Directive 2009/28/EC).

In order to take part in the ISCC certification system, it is mandatory to meet 3 categories of criteria:

  • Sustainability criteria for cultivation
    and biomass production
  • Requirements for reducing gas emissions
    greenhouse pool and calculation methodology
  • Requirements for traceability and mass balance,
