Waga Energy awarded ISCC EU certification for Catalonia RNG site
The International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) programme has been developed within the European Union, and is the world's first biomass and bioenergy certification scheme.
Waga Energy was awarded the certification following an independent audit that was conducted in April this year.
The accreditation proves the installation meets sustainability and greenhouse gas emissions savings criteria, as set out in the European RED II Directive.
This framework enables RNG purchasers to prove they are reducing the environmental impact of their business, measure their products' carbon footprint, and prove their compliance with any regulatory obligations.
Additionally, Waga Energy has begun the certification process for all its European facilities with production capacity of over 20 GWh per year.
In France, this certification will soon be a requirement for accessing the feed-in tariff. It will also facilitate the sale of RNG through private Biomethane Purchase Agreements (BPA).
"ISCC certification guarantees that the RNG we produce is traceable and compliant with European biofuel regulations, which helps boost its value. This will enable us to increase the selling price of RNG produced by our first Spanish facility," said Lucie Tonnellier, energy director of Waga Energy.
