  2. 2. Main Questions Covered• What is sustainable biomass?• Why did the Dutch develop NTA 8080?• How do I demonstrate sustainability?• Concluding remarks NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass
  3. 3. What is sustainable biomass?NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass
  4. 4. Definition of Sustainability Cramer sustainability themes: • Greenhouse gas emissions • Competition with food and local applications of biomass • Biodiversity • Environment • Prosperity • Social well-beingNTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass 4
  5. 5. People Well-being The production of biomass needs to contribute to the well-being of the employees and the local community. Environment In the production and processing of biomass, the quality of the soil, surface and ground water and air needs to be preserved, if not improved.NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass 5
  6. 6. Planet Biodiversity Biomass production may never harm protected or vulnerable biodiversity but –wherever possible– needs to strengthen the biodiversity. Greenhouse gases Considered over the entire chain, the use of biomass needs to result in a sharp reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuels.NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass 6
  7. 7. Profit Prosperity The production of biomass needs to contribute to the local economy. Competition The production of biomass for energy purposes may not endanger the food supply or other local applications.NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass 7
  8. 8. NTA 8080 Sustainability criteria forbiomass for energy purposes• NTA = Netherlands Technical Agreement• Developed with a diverse group of Dutch stakeholders with international operations• For international application• Input in international standardization• Solid, Liquid and Gaseous biomass• Producers, Processors, Traders, End-usersNTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass

  11. 11. Why did the Dutch develop NTA 8080?NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass
  12. 12. Renewable Energy Directive“...a target of at least a 20 % share of energy from renewable sources in the Community’s gross final consumption of energy in 2020.” “…the share of energy from renewable sources in all forms of transport in 2020 is at least 10 % of the final consumption of energy in transport in that Member State.” NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass
  13. 13. Booming Biomass• EU and Global climate policy favors biomass• Biomass is global business• Cramer committee (2007): • Large opportunities for new activities in the field of biomass • Must not be at the expense of other important values for nature, environment and society• Dutch biomass demand will exceed domestic production With green power comes green responsibility NTA 8080 Certification of sustainable biomass 13
