Swiss firm MBP Group earns RSB sustainability certification
Switzerland-based waste fats and oils collection company MBP Group has earned the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials sustainability certification for their waste material collection, trading and distribution activities. MBP markets products in the areas of biofuel, technical oils, animal feed, fertilizer and anaerobic digestion substrates.
“MBP Group was built on a sustainable background, adding as much value as possible to industrial byproducts,” says David Magnussen, CEO of MBP Group. “Sustainability was—and still remains—a key ingredient of our business activities and its success. We are pleased to see that our company was certified according to the RSB scheme; this constitutes an important recognition of our continuous efforts for the sustainable management and trade of industrial waste and byproducts.”
“We are very pleased that MBP Group has chosen RSB certification for their sites in the U.K., Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland,” said Rolf Hogan, executive secretary of RSB. “MBP’s commitment to feedstock traceability throughout their operations, which supply a wide range of waste material to the biofuels and bioenergy sectors, fits very well with the robust RSB approach to waste verification.”
MBP provides services and expertise in byproduct collection to a wide range of industries and specializes in finding optimal markets for fats and oil as well as solids and powders.
The RSB is a European Commission approved system for the sustainability certification of biomaterials including biofuels. Based on 12 key principles, RSB provides a holistic approach towards sustainability assurance, covering social, environmental, economic and operational aspects in its analysis.
