Indonesia Now Export Biomass to Japan and the European Union

            The largest biomass energy provider in Indonesia, PT Internasional Green Energi, opened access to export its products to Japan and the European Union after the company won the Green Gold Label (GGL) Certificate. The certificate indicates that the production of palm kernel shells for biomass products from the company comes from sustainable sources. International Director of Green Energy (IGE) Dikki Akhmar said that the certificate opened up more access for companies to export biomass products to a number of major import countries, such as Japan and the European Union. So far, many countries and regions have given quite stringent requirements to receive biomass products.

            “We have met international standards regarding the need for sustainability certification for products sold or exported. IGE means that it is credible to export to countries that require sustainability certification,” he said in an official statement, Saturday (29/1/2022). The GGL certificate received by IGE is awarded by the Control Union, a certification body based in Zwolle, The Netherlands. GGL standardization is one of the pioneers of sustainable certification schemes for biomass products that have been recognized and applied worldwide.

            The GGL standardization audit process is carried out covering traceability of oil palm plantations from which shell supplies are supplied, energy producer utilities, including energy and carbon data that must be provided in the entire supply chain system.
