RSB announces first commercial certification
The Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) has announced the first completed commercial certification of the Manildra Group, Australia.
Through its subsidiary Shoalhaven Starches Pty Ltd, the Manildra Group produces bioethanol from starchy wastewater generated by their wheat-processing facility.
The certification, conducted by NCS International, serves to prove sustainable biofuels may be efficiently and economically produced at a large scale while adhering to ambitious social and environmental standards.
‘Several other operations around the world are currently in the audit process and are expected to follow Manildra in paving the way towards biofuels that deliver on their sustainability promises’ says Peter Ryus, CEO of RSB Services Foundation. ‘The RSB Global Sustainability Standard has been broadly accepted as the reference for responsible biofuel production’.
