The ENplus certification system was established in 2011. The initiators of its development and introduction were non-commercial organizations “The European Biomass Association” (AEBIOM) and “European Pellet Council” (the European Pellet Council), organizations representing the interests of Europe in the world sector of fuel pellets and bioenergetics. The certification scheme is based on the standard EN 14961-2 and aims to distribute quality wood pellets throughout Europe as a source of bio-energy.
The key advantage of such certification is that ENplus ensures the quality of pellets along the entire length of the chain, including production, storage and transportation to end users. EN Plus certification also includes monitoring of the production plant and the adoption of specific procedures that allow the production of high-quality pellets over time.
ENplus certification is aimed at making the new European standard workable, ensuring that the product sold corresponds to the specified requirements. ENplus allow to purchase pellets with high quality and constant characteristics throughout Europe, guaranteed by a transparent certification system. The certificate provides for regular annual inspections of the entire production process, including raw materials and equipment directly at the enterprise.
Pellets are divided into 3 classes of quality
ENPlus-A1 is a pellet of the highest quality with an ash content up to 0.5%
ENPlus-A2 are pellets with an ash content up to 1.5%
EN-B is pellets with an ash content of up to 3%.
