The status of biomass certification in Europe - Jakarta, March 3, 2011

  1. 1. The status of biomass certification inEuropeHarmen Willemse,Jakarta, March 3, 2011The status biomass of certification in Europe 1
  2. 2. Presentation outline• EU legislative developments• Implementation by EU members• International standardisation network• NTA 8080 Certification systemThe status of biomass certification in Europe
  3. 3. EU Legislative developments • EU Regulatory framework – European Directive for the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (2009/28/EC) – Directive 2009/30/EC - amendment to Directive 98/70/EC on environmental quality standards for fuel (Fuel Quality Directive) • Communication – on the practical implementation of the EU biofuel and bioliquids sustainability scheme and on counting rules for biofuels – on voluntary schemes and default values in the EU biofuels and bioliquids sustainability schemeThe status of biomass certification in Europe
  4. 4. EU • Decision – on guidelines for the calculation of land carbon stocks for the purpose of Annex V to Directive 2009/28/EC – on certain types of information about biofuels and bioliquids to be submitted by the economic operators to Member States • Report – on sustainability requirements for the use of solid and gaseous biomass resources in electricity, heating and coolingThe status of biomass certification in Europe
  5. 5. 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.” The status of biomass certification in Europe
  6. 6. RED Themes• Economic operators – Greenhouse gas emissions – Biodiversity – Carbon stock – Environment (via cross compliance within EU) – Mass balance• Reporting requirements for member statesThe status of biomass certification in Europe
  7. 7. Implementation EU members• Voluntary schemes under evaluation by EC• No recognised schemes available yet• No guidelines for the intermediate period• Unclear status of EU members nationally recognised schemesThe status of biomass certification in Europe 7
  8. 8. Dutch (concept) legislation• Voluntary schemes • Accept all schemes submitted to EC for 2011 • Accept EU members nationally recognised schemes after Quick Scan for 2011 • Testing protocol for nationally submitted schemes• Sustainable biofuels • H1 2011: choose certification scheme • H2 2011: statement of authorised CB • 2012: CB complianceThe status of biomass certification in Europe 8
  9. 9. Dutch (concept) legislation• Portion renewable energy in transport: o 10% in 2020 o Gradual implementation; o 4.25% in 2011, o 4.5% in 2012, o 5% in 2013, o 5.5% in 2014The status of biomass certification in Europe 9
  10. 10. Regulations, standards and certification Global criteria Legal documents RED (Directives, laws, regulations)Detailed elaboration Standards (NTA, NEN, NEN-EN, ISO) NTA 8080 Conformity 1st, 2nd, 3th party certification, System plans et cetera. NTA 8081, Interpretation document, CE mark, The status of biomass certification in Europe

European & international framework Legislation Standardization No barriers to trade WTO PC 248 ISO Vienna agreement Europe European Mandates RED Commission TC 383 CEN Standards Directives Standards LawsNetherlands Dutch government NEN NTA8080 Laws Regulation Standards The status of biomass certification in Europe
  12. 12. NC 310 383• Sustainability criteria for biomass (Duurzaamheidscriteria voor biomassa)• Mirroring & Dutch representation in CEN/TC 383 and ISO/PC 248The status of biomass certification in Europe
  13. 13. CEN/TC 383 "Sustainably producedbiomass for energy applications"• Original scope: – sustainability criteria based on "people, planet, profit" for all types of biomass for energy applications• Current scope – sustainability criteria limited to RED aspects: prEN 16214 series, Sustainably produced biomass for energy applications• Study group to evaluate on what basis the existing EN 16214 standards can be utilised for solid biomassThe status of biomass certification in Europe
  14. 14. CEN/TC 383 EN 16214• WG 1 Terminology – Part 1: Terminology (public enquiry)• WG 2 GHG calculations – Part 4: Calculation methods of the greenhouse gas emission balance using a life cycle analysis (soon public enquiry)• WG 3 Environment and biodiversity – Part 3: Biodiversity and environmental aspects (public enquiry)• WG 4 Social and economic (on hold)• WG 5 Verification and auditing – Part 2: Conformity assessment including chain of custody and mass balance (public enquiry)• WG 6 Indirect effects (NL convenor/on hold)The status of biomass certification in Europe
  15. 15. ISO/PC 248 "Sustainability criteria forbioenergy"• Development of standard ISO 13065• Scope: Sustainability criteria for production, supply chain and application of bioenergy; – including terminology and aspects related to the sustainability (e.g. environmental, social and economic) of bioenergy• Objectives – Comply with national and/or regional legislation – Respect the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – Use natural resources in a rational and sustainable way – Bioenergy from production up to use should be sustainable in relation to biological diversityThe status of biomass certification in Europe
  16. 16. ISO/PC 248 "Sustainability criteria forbioenergy"• Objectives (continued) – Reduce GHG emissions in relation to the fossil energy source it substitutes – Promote economic and social development where the production up to use of bioenergy occurs – Bioenergy production should be economically and financially viable in the long term• Final publication expected April 2014The status of biomass certification in Europe
