Friday, January 17, 2014

The RBO Steering Committee is calling for expression of interest from a contractor able to carry out the daily management of the RBO certification, which is establishing as an industry-lead reference certification tool for biofuels in Europe.

The RBO Consortium is an industry initiative aiming to facilitate compliance with the provisions of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED 2009/28) and the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD 200/30) especially with respect to Extra Incentivised Biofuels (EIBs).
