Intermediary Crops for the Biofuel Industry

Additional Farmer Income

By integrating feedstock production for biofuels into a crop rotation, farmers can benefit from multiple harvests per year, diversifying their income streams.

This approach maximises land and adds an additional income source, independent from food markets.

Additional protein and oil

Research shows that intermediate oilseed crops have multiple benefits, such as promoting sustainability through increasing soil health. Oilseed crops also make use of additional sunlight and transform it into proteins and oils without competing for food production or requiring additional land.

Environmental Benefits

Intermediate crops, often referred to as cover crops, are plants grown between the regular planting seasons of primary cash crops.

This plant cover provides major environmental benefits such as soil cover, reduced erosion, and improved soil health through nutrient enrichment. Cover crops also help with water management, weeds, and pests.

Cover crops are typically planted during the off-season for the main crop and are removed before the primary crop is planted.

Intermediary Crops for Aviation Fuel

In the latest updates to the EU RED II regulation and Annex IX, intermediary crops are approved as advanced biofuel sources for the aviation sector, under the condition that they don’t trigger demand for additional land.

Intermediary crops can be refined into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), aligning with efforts to decarbonise the sector. The leftover, protein-rich oil seed meal becomes a valuable feed for livestock.

Camelina and Carinata, for instance, are nutrient-packed members of the Brassicaceae family. Grown as an intermediate crop, they can provide essential biomass, without demanding additional land.

The Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED II & III)

EU RED II Targets

As part of the EU's push towards cleaner transport, advanced biofuels have a specific role to play. These fuels, derived from feedstocks in Part A of Annex IX, are set to make an increasing impact.

Starting with a modest share of 0.2% of the energy used in transport in 2022, the target jumps to 1% by 2025, and then to a significant 3.5% by 2030. This progressive scale-up pushes the entire industry to innovate and increase the production of advanced biofuels.

EU RED II compliance: what it means for biofuel producers

Navigating the EU's RED II guidelines can be a challenging task for biofuel producers. At a high level, biofuel producers need to focus on:

Sourcing Sustainable
Ensuring that biofuels are produced from sustainable sources, specifically those listed in Annex IX, which includes intermediary crops that does not trigger demand for additional land.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Meeting the following biofuels targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout the production and use of biofuels compared to fossil fuels. Transport biofuels need to have a GHG saving of 65% Biofuels for electricity, heating, and cooling must have a GHG saving of 80%.

Tracking and Reporting
Maintaining accurate records and providing transparent reporting on the origin and sustainability credentials of feedstocks.

Compliance not only opens doors to maximising the value of biomass materials and bio-based fuels but also positions producers at the forefront of the shift towards a more sustainable energy future.

Certifying your intermediary crops

The advantages of certification

Certification is important because it provides assurance that the requirements of regulations are met across standards that have been approved by the EU. This helps to ensure that feedstocks are produced in a sustainable way. Although participation in sustainability certification schemes like ISCC is currently voluntary, it is likely to become a mandatory condition for businesses in the near future.

Securing certification throughout the entire supply chain enables your businesses to substantiate sustainability claims and demonstrate your regulatory compliance publicly. This process requires that certification covers every element of the supply chain, beginning with the feedstock produced at the farm.

The steps to get ISCC certified

1. Get in touch with us and sign up for our product.
Implement RegenRate, a user-friendly software designed to help you manage your ISCC EU & PLUS documentation.

2. Choose one of our partner Certification bodies or come with your own
We work with Control Union, one of the major certifying bodies, but you can also select your own. Here’s the ISCC’s list of recognised Certification Bodies.

3. We will register you with ISCC
Our software generates ISCC the registration form. Control the data on the software and we will send it to ISCC.

4. Prepare for audit
You will need to conduct an internal audit based on set procedures before the actual audit. This allows you to identify and complement any missing information from your gap analysis, and make any changes necessary to comply with the standards. It is also mandatory to conduct a training of all employees responsible for compliance with the standard. We can help you prepare this if you need guidance.

5. Audit conducted by the certification body
Once training is done and all documentation is ready, we will request the official audit or you can request it by your certification body if you have chosen your own. All necessary proof, documents, and access to relevant locations must be provided. If anything is missing or erroneous, a non-conformity is issued and you must implement any corrective measure within 40 days.

6. Certificate is issued
The Certification Body has 60 days to issue the certificate after the audit and send all audit documents to both you and ISCC. You will be able to start handling certified material from this point on.

7. Internal Review and approval by ISCC
ISCC officials will conduct an internal review of the audit documents from the Certification Body. If all criteria are met, they will issue the ISCC certification and publish your certificate on their website where all valid certificates can be found.

Our Story: From Impact to Innovation

We are Thimm and Alice, co-founders of RegenRate. During the Fresh Ventures Program in 2022, we launched our first venture, FarmOn, focused on transforming the food system. Through our experience advising farmers on cover cropping, we discovered that many farmers viewed cover crops as an additional cost, providing little incentive for implementation. And this is why we’ve built RegenRate, a software platform designed to help source and verify feedstock from produced cover crops. We show how they can enhance land productivity without impacting food crops, thereby valorising them for the advanced biofuel industry.

Our Mission

At RegenRate, we are on a mission to enable farmers to access new sources of income, by creating new markets, while improving soil health.
