Quality & Sustainability
Biomass is an important Part of the Energy Revolution
This turnaround can only be achieved by means of a well-balanced mix of renewable energies. In addition to water, wind and sun as energy supplies, the generation of energy from biomass is vital. Biomass offers valuable opportunities for generating and storing energy, which can help, secure the much-needed independence from limited resources in the energy sector. Energy revolution? We are on board! With biofuels for engines, combined heat and power (CHP) units as well as cogeneration plants.
Biofuels Sustainability Regulation (BioKraftNachV)
With the implementation of the Biofuels Sustainability Regulation, several certifications for production plants have become necessary. Tecosol has received all the necessary certificates.
EU Requirement already met
The EU directive on the reduction of greenhouse gases caused by biofuels and liquid bioenergy sources requires a reduction of the green house gases effect by 50 percent from 2017 on, from 2018 by 60 percent. The unique raw material mix, resulting from the Tecosol’s bio-refining of waste oils, residual and fresh vegetable oils, ensures our Campa biodiesel already a CO2 saving potential of 90 percent and more. The future is already here.
In Germany, the usage of biofuels is directed by the biofuel sustainability regulation (Biokraftstoff-Nachhaltigkeits-Verordnung). To reduce climate change to a minimum, biofuels must avoid a major part of green house gas emissions compared to fossil fuel combustion.
Furthermore, there are strong regulations for growing biomass used for biofuel production. Neither land with a high carbon stock like peatlands or forests nor areas with a high biological diversity can be converted into agricultural land.
