Sustainability issues

BTG develops bioenergy projects and technologies that contribute optimally toward a sustainable society. Next to the development and use of modern, reliable and efficient bioenergy technologies, BTG pays attention to the sustainable origin of the biomass feedstock. Only sustainable biomass, produced with the best possible carbon and fossil energy savings are accepted. Moreover, areas with high conservation value should be protected and local social and cultural interests should be taken into account. BTG’s activities are particularly focused on “future proof” biomass resources and technologies that avoid competition with food supply.

BTG is fully acquainted with methods, tools and policies to manage sustainable biomass production. BTG has recently advised the European Commission on biomass sustainability criteria and certification systems. BTG supports governmental and financial institutions, companies and NGOs in their process to select and guarantee sustainable biomass production methods and projects, for instance by providing tailor made advice, calculation tools and sustainability protocols.
