EN 16214-1 : Sustainability criteria for the production of biofuels and bioliquids for energy applications - Part 1: Terminology

Abstract:
This European Standard defines the terminology to be used in the field of sustainability criteria for the production of biofuels and bioliquids for energy applications. This European Standard specifically considers some relevant terms and definitions used in the European Commission Directive 2009/28/EC [1], referred to as Renewable Energy Directive (RED), and in the European Commission Directive 2009/30/EC [2] referred to as Fuel Quality Directive (FQD), or in other European regulations.

EN 16214-3 : Sustainability criteria for the production of biofuels and bioliquids for energy applications - Part 3: Biodiversity and environmental aspects

Abstract:
This European Standard only defines procedures, criteria and indicators to provide the required evidence for: - production of raw material in areas for nature protection purposes; - harvesting of raw material from highly biodiverse non-natural grassland; and - cultivation and harvesting on peatland. This European Standard specifies requirements relevant for the provision of evidence by economic operators that the production, cultivation and harvesting of raw materials is in accordance with legal or other requirements concerning the areas mentioned above. This European Standard is applicable to production, cultivation and harvesting of biomass for biofuels and bioliquids production

CEN/TS 16214-2 : Sustainability criteria for the production of biofuels and bioliquids for energy applications - Part 2: Conformity assessment including chain of custody and mass balance

Abstract:

This Technical Specification defines requirements for provision by economic operators of the required evidence that biofuels and bioliquids fulfil the sustainability criteria as defined in the Renewable Energy Directive [1]. This Technical Specification is applicable to the initial biomass production or to the point of collection for waste and residue and to each stage within the chain of custody. It also defines requirements on conformity assessment bodies when checking compliance with the present standard. NOTE An example of supply chain of biofuels and bioliquids to be covered by the chain of custody is given in Figure 1. This supply chain is a simple representation, actual supply chains are typically more complex.

EN 16214-4 : Sustainability criteria for the production of biofuels and bioliquids for energy applications - Part 4: Calculation methods of the greenhouse gas emission balance using a life cycle analysis

Abstract:
This European Standard specifies a detailed methodology that will allow any economic operator in a biofuel or bioliquid chain to calculate the actual GHG emissions associated with its operations in a standardised and transparent manner, taking all materially relevant aspects into account. It includes all steps of the chain from biomass production to the end transport and distribution operations. The methodology strictly follows the principles and rules stipulated in the RED and particularly its Annex V, the EC decision dated 10 June 2010 "Guideline for calculation of land carbon stocks" for the purpose of Annex V to Directive 2009/28/EC (2010/335/EU) [5] as well as any additional interpretation of the legislative text published by the EU Commission. Where appropriate these rules are clarified, explained and further elaborated. In the context of accounting for heat and electricity consumption and surpluses reference is also made to Directive 2004/8/EC [6] on "the promotion of cogeneration based on a useful heat demand in the internal energy market" and the associated EU Commission decision of 21/12/2006 "establishing harmonised efficiency reference values for separate production of electricity and heat" [7]. The main purpose of this standard is to specify a methodology to estimate GHG emissions at each step of the biofuel/bioliquid production and transport chain. The specific way in which these emissions have to be combined to establish the overall GHG balance of a biofuel or bioliquid depends on the chain of custody system in use and is not per se within the scope of this part 4 of the EN 16214 standard. Part 2 of the standard, addresses these issues in detail also in accordance with the stipulations of the RED. Nevertheless, Clause 6 of this part of the standard includes general indications and guidelines on how to integrate the different parts of the chain.

CEN/TS 15439 : Biomass gasification. Tar and particles in product gases. Sampling and analysis

Abstract:
This European Technical Specification gives methods for sampling and analysis of tars and particles in order to determine the load of these contaminants in flowing biomass gasification product gases. The Technical Specification is applicable to sampling and analysis of tars and particles in the concentration range typically from 1 mg/mn3 to 300 g/mn3 (tars) and from 20 mg/mn3 to 30 g/mn3 (particles) at all relevant sampling point conditions (0 °C to 900°C and 60 kPa to 6000 kPa (0,6 bar to 60 bar) ) ), ). Particle concentrations lower than 20 mg/mn3 are outside the scope of this Technical Specification and can be measured according to EN 13284-1. Application of this Technical Specification allows determination of five different parameters: A. The concentration of gravimetric tar in mg/mn3; B. The concentration of individual organic compounds in mg/mn3. This Technical Specification gives data on repeatability and reproducibility for the compounds listed in Annex B. The Technical Specification is also applicable for other organic compounds (e.g. those mentioned in Annex A), but repeatability and reproducibility have not been assessed for compounds other than those in Annex B; C. The sum of concentrations of identified GC-detectable compounds listed in Annex B; D. The sum of concentrations of all GC-detectable compounds with retention times in the range of benzene to coronene calculated as naphthalene (benzene excluded), given that this sum of concentrations can be determined. E. The concentration of particles in mg/mn3.
