BioGrace Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Calculations Tool

This tool allows economic operators to calculate biofuel greenhouse gas emissions according to the Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC, RED) and the Fuel Quality Directive (2009/30/EC). The RED  was implemented in 2009 by the European Union, setting sustainability criteria for biofuels, stating that the greenhouse gas emission saving achieved by biofuels must be at least 35% compared to fossil fuels; rising to at least 50% by 2017, and 60% by 2018 for biofuels produced in new installations.
