Name change for biomass-led fuel organisation
The Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) has changed its name following a recent meeting of its delegates.
The organisation is now known as Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials to reflect its expansion of scope to apply its standards to biomass that is being used for other products in addition to biofuels.
‘There is a large range of biomaterials including bio-plastics, cosmetics, food additives and bio-chemicals, so by expanding our scope to cover biomaterials, this enables us to promote sustainable production in a whole new range of products and markets,’ says Rolf Hogan, executive secretary of the RSB.
‘But our goal remains to provide and promote the global standard for socially, environmentally and economically sustainable production and conversion of biomaterial.’
