Our Renewables Team that operates and oversees our continuous pyrolysis plant for end-of-life tyres has achieved ISCC accreditation.
The International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is an internationally recognised standard used in the biofuels and energy industry to demonstrate that fuel meets the defined sustainability criteria, an essential part of the process regarding the pyrolysis oil that our plant produces.
Mark Pepper, CEO, Carlton Forest Group commented; “This is a fantastic achievement by the entire team, but a special mention should go to Debra Boid and Ben Crunckhorn for their tenacity and determination during the process. Thanks also to Rory Hughes for his support to the team in commencing the process.”
Achieving ISCC accreditation brings added value to the tyre recycling industry. Knowing that end-of-life tyres are being responsibly recovered is a significant step forward.
It brings even greater reassurance to those utilising the pyrolysis oil produced of its quality, suitability and place in the waste hierarchy. It supports businesses that form part of the biofuel supply chain. It is a ‘RED (Renewables Energy Directive) compliant biofuels scheme that demonstrates these EU sustainability criteria (REC I & II) are met, in addition to being compliant with the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) of the European Commission.)’
Mark added; “Every day is a step closer to 24/7 operations and it is all credit to Andy, Rudi, and the team at the plant for integrating the necessary certification and strategic operations into the day to day running of the plant.
“2023 will be the culmination of years of research, product development and hard work, and we are immensely proud of what we have achieved on the journey so far.”
