EU Sustainable Canola – the 2BSvs Scheme
As a result of the European Union (EU) Renewable Energy Directive (RED) Australian canola can now only access the European bio-fuels market if the canola is produced from a farm that meets the requirement of the EU RED.
This market is often very important to the pricing of Australian canola and thus the Australian industry is moving quickly towards producing EU sustainable canola that can access this market when needed. At Centre State our aim is to maximize the price you get for your grain.
To give us the best chance of doing this for your canola we need to be able to access all markets and thus the need for you to be part of the 2BSvs scheme.
To be part of the scheme you need to do the following:
Make yourself aware of the requirements of the 2BSvs scheme and ensure that you can comply with the EU Directive 2009/28/EC.
