The French 2BSvs certification scheme is related to the sustainable production of biomass. It is particularly relevant to biofuel and biogas (methanisation) producers and their suppliers, such as traders and cooperatives, regarding raw materials from organic origin, including agricultural and forest products.
The 2BSvs certification scheme is recognised by the European Commission and was developed by a working group composed of representatives of the biofuel and biogas sector in France. The directive 2018/2001, referred to as Renewable Energy Directive (RED II), on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, introduces two renewable energy targets for 2030: 32% in global consumption and 14% in transport. 2BSvs certification allows the sale of sustainable biomass, biofuel or biogas from cereals, oilseeds, protein crops, grass, other crops or waste and residues.
Further information on 2BSvs certification is available on the 2BS Consortium website.
