Renewable products company completes Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials certification process
US based Renewable products company Amyris has completed the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) certification process, earning a respected sustainability certification.
Amyris is working with a number of partners to deliver products that include renewable fuels and lubricants, high-performance polymers and solvents, and consumer care ingredients such as emollients and fragrance oils.
RSB's sustainability certification covers Amyris's renewable hydrocarbon molecules, initially farnesene, produced from Brazilian sugarcane feedstock at the Amyris biorefinery in Brotas, São Paulo. The audit for RSB certification was conducted by SCS Global Services. "We are delighted to grant RSB certification to Amyris, the first company to earn RSB certification in Brazil. Their commitment to sustainability and recognition of the importance of strong, credible sustainability standards in the biochemical industry is impressive and continues to help position Amyris as an industry leader," said Rolf Hogan, RSB's Executive Secretary.
