08 Jun 2020

Europe’s largest producer of biodiesel, confirmed receiving the first Nuseed Carinata grain shipment, grown as a scalable cover crop in Argentina, for processing into a renewable fuel with best in class greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction. An independent SCS Global audit and certification by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB), a globally recognized leader in sustainability, confirms substantial carbon reduction.

“Carinata, a proven high performance, purpose-built biofuel feedstock is capable of replacing petroleum fuels with a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions," says Romain Lebas, Head of Sustainability and Low GHG Sourcing.

"The RSB certification verifies that the reduction is best in class, giving us complete confidence in maximizing the use of carinata as a feedstock in our biofuels."
