Blockchain Database for Sustainable Biofuels: A Case Study

Date: March 2021

RSB and Bioledger developed a case study on the potential of a blockchain database to support traceability of biofuel and its feedstocks and overcome the vulnerabilities identified by a recent fraud investigation in the Netherlands. The proposed solution — a blockchain database that enables verifiable proof of origin, secure consignment creation, process simplification, audit efficiency, data integrity, and central governance — was prototyped and trialled with project partners to process a total of 1,927,906 litres of feedstock, accurately representing real-life commercial and operational processes in 2020. The project was made possible by a grant from the ISEAL Innovations Fund, which is supported by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
