Nordic Ecolabel provides pre-requisites for Swan-labeled fuels

Nordic Ecolabel provides pre-requisites for Swan-labeled fuels

The Nordic Ecolabel, a standard promoted by the Nordic Council for environmentally sustainable products, has provided the pre-requisites for companies to apply for the Swan label for fuels including ethanol, biodiesel, biogas and mixtures of these fuels.
The Nordic Ecolabel has requirements for the entire product lifecycle, from the raw materials to the finished product, in this case the fuel that is available at the petrol stations.

The most essential requirements for Nordic Ecolabelled fuels are reduced emissions that negatively affect global warming and climate change with an absolute threshold value to the amount of CO2 that may be released to the atmosphere during the entire life-cycle of the fuel.

Other pre-requisites include restrictions on the total energy used at the production stage, traceability of crops and certified sustainable farming, and defined limitations on health effects of these fuels.

Within a year, the requirements for Nordic Ecolabelled fuel will be revised to allow for the incorporation of new results from technical research, certifications and European Union directives.
