Helsinki, Finland-headquartered UPM Biofuels is reporting receipt of a sustainability certificate from the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) for the cultivation of Brassica carinata (Carinata) as an oilseed crop specially designed for sustainable production of biofuels.

The RSB certification in biofuel feedstock production complements UPM Biofuels' existing sustainability certifications like International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) and RSB certifications for its UPM BioVerno biofuel production.

RSB is one of the European Commission's approved voluntary schemes used to show compliance with the EU Renewable Energy Directive's sustainability criteria. In addition to EU RED criteria, the sustainability of biofuels is evaluated against 12 principles which have been approved by a wide variety of stakeholders, including NGOs and UN agencies.
