The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) has today announced that 100 organisations now currently hold valid SBP certificates. The organisations have been certified in accordance with the SBP certification system, a unique certification system designed for woody biomass used in industrial, large-scale heat and power production.
Carsten Huljus, SBP Chief Executive Officer, commented: “The SBP certification system enables producers of woody biomass to demonstrate that they source the raw material responsibly and in compliance with the regulatory, including sustainability, requirements applicable to generators burning woody biomass to produce heat and/or power.
“Reaching 100 certifications is an important milestone for us. It firmly establishes SBP as an effective certification system for the biomass-to-energy sector”.
SBP Certificate Holders are either biomass producers, traders, or the end-users of SBP- certified biomass, such as large-scale utilities producing heat and power. The geographic reach of the SBP system currently extends to 15 countries. A list of Certificate Holders may be viewed at: http://www.sbp-cert.org/approvals-and-certifications/certificate-holders.
