Dual certification brings new business to Stolthaven Terminals, Netherlands

Stolthaven Terminals' facility in Moerdijk, Netherlands has achieved two key credentials in the past month: the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) and certification to store CAT-3 products in its tanks and warehouse.

Achieving these credentials – now industry requirements and the result of thorough third-party auditing processes – highlights Stolthaven Terminals' commitment to supporting the green-energy transition.

The ISCC is an internationally recognised standard in the biofuels and energy industry. It applies to companies at all points in the supply chain and demonstrates that fuel, biobased feedstocks and renewables meet defined sustainability criteria.

The certification is aligned with the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive and complies with the Fuel Quality Directive of the European Commission.

The CAT-3 certification confirms that the Moerdijk terminal safely and sustainably stores and handles products containing animal by-products, such as used cooking oil (UCO), which is a major source of biofuel. As a result of this certification, the team is now working with Stolthaven Terminals' Dagenham facility to provide one of its customers with storage solutions for UCO in the Netherlands.

Roel van Leeuwen, Sales Manager at the Moerdijk terminal, said: "We are delighted with these achievements and the fact that we are already working with new customers as a result of these certifications. We look forward to continuing to serve our existing customers in a safe and sustainable way, and welcoming more new customers to Moerdijk."
