The Biofertiliser Certification Scheme provides assurance to consumers, farmers, food producers and retailers that biofertiliser is safe and of good quality. Biofertiliser is the name adopted within the BCS for quality digestate which is the by-product from a biogas plant that uses anaerobic digestion to break down organic material left over from food and farm processes.
The Biofertiliser Certification Scheme (BCS) provides assurance to consumers, farmers, food producers and retailers that digestate produced from anaerobic digestion is safe for human, animal and plant health. Biofertiliser is the name adopted for the quality digestate that meets the PAS110 & ADQP or ASRS specification.

BCS is part of Renewable Energy Assurance Ltd, a subsidiary of the Renewable Energy Association. Plants are assessed by two independent Certifying Bodies and an independent Panel oversees the BCS.

Digestate that achieves certification is no longer classed as a waste and can be spread beneficially to land without the need for an Environmental Permit, providing a valuable source of organic, carbon-free fertiliser.
