Certification system of sustainable biofuels and bioliquids production

System of certification of biofuels and bioliquids (the KZR INiG System) relating to the sustainability criteria was developed in the Oil and Gas Institute in Poland.The rules of the KZR INiG System are based on requirements stated in Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 23, 2009 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources and amending and subsequently repealing Directives 2001/77/EC and 2003/30/EC(further referred to as the RED or Renewable Energy Directive). The requirements of the KZR INiG System are in line with the aims defined in the Directive, and they also take into account local conditions. The KZR INIG System is on the list of approved voluntary schemes at pos. no. 17.

Within the framework of the KZR INiG System raw materials cultivated and harvested, as well as wastes and residues collected in the territory of European Union, and also feedstock, biofuels and bioliquids produced in the territory of EU countries, will be assessed for conformity with sustainability criteria.

The whole lifecycle of biofuels and bioliquids will be assessed, starting from the stage of raw material cultivation or waste collection point to the stage of final usage, waste and residue formation, considering all inter-linkage of the supply chain.

The KZR INiG System recognises the same version and scope of the voluntary schemes, that are recognised by the EC in the context of the Directive 2009/28/EC. KZR INiG System recognises the scope of the voluntary scheme that the EC recognises in this context.
