First REDcert² certificate for BASF
With the introduction of the “Supplementary REDcert² scheme principles for the chemical industry”, REDcert is extending the scope of its REDcert² scheme to include an important economic sector in the area of biomass use for material purposes. The chemical industry is also increasingly relying on the use of sustainably produced and certified biomass to replace fossil-based raw materials. It therefore makes an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gases and conserving fossil-based resources.
After a successful audit in 2018 BASF is the first chemical company getting a certificate according to the new standard REDcert² for the chemical industry. BASF is going to certify its biomass balanced products according to the new REDcert2 standard for the chemical industry by the end of 2019 (https://www.basf.com/global/en/who-we-are/sustainability/whats-new/sustainability-news/2019/BASF-REDcert2-standard.html).
The groundwork has thus been laid for selling sustainable biomass for the chemical industry within the REDcert² system. Companies that are interested in participating in the REDcert² certification scheme for the chemical industry have been able to register on the REDcert web site (https://www.redcert.eu/RegistrierungSystemAuswahl.aspx).
Further information about the REDcert² system are published under https://www.redcert.org/en/redcert/material-purposes.html.
