In Colorado, United Energy Trading (UET) said it has achieved International Sustainability and Carbon Certification EU and PLUS certifications for its purchasing, selling, and trading of ISCC EU and PLUS certified biomethane and bio-circular methane for the renewable fuels market.
The firm noted that ISCC EU certification is recognized by the European Commission to demonstrate compliance with the sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids set out in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) and by the United Kingdom under the renewable fuel obligation.
The ISCC PLUS is a voluntary sustainability certification for plastics and chemicals, food and feed markets, as well as biofuels outside the European Union and the UK., the firm added.
“Our strategic efforts under our United Green Energy banner has bolstered our renewable energy solutions in bio-diesel, biomethane/renewable natural gas, renewable energy certificates, ethanol, and investments in sustainable infrastructure to help the world obtain carbon-neutral status,” said Tom Smith, President of UET. “The ISCC EU and PLUS certifications bring UET one step closer to achieving our long-term goals by partnering with our customers to help reduce carbon footprints, improve ESG scores, and monetize carbon sequestration and ultimately be a leader in driving the clean energy movement.”
