Wood pellets are a biofuel made from wood chips without any additives; they have a cylindrical shape with a 6 mm diameter and a length below 4.5 cm. Their low moisture content and high energy value have many advantages: reduced storage space, good combustion, autonomous operation of stoves and boilers, transport and commercialization versatility.
Certified quality ENPlus A1 and DINplus certified wood pellets
Enerbio produces pellets for “domestic” use under the most demanding quality standards, ENPlus and DINplus.
ENPlus A1 and/or DINplus wood pellets guarantee a consistent performance. Independent authorised bodies control compliance with a number of requirements such as ash content or calorific value.
Premier Biomass is the first company in the sector to achieve the prestigious quality seal, which guarantees natural wood origin of the product and the raw material, as well as the fulfilment of the highest quality standards.
Sustainability: PEFC and FSC certified pellet
Enerbio is certified in Chain of Custody under the PEFC and FSC certification schemes, which guarantees the traceability, legality and sustainability of the raw material and the final product through a complex and complete management system.
SBP: Sustainable Biomass Partnership
Premier Biomass is a factory with SBP, a certificate promoted by several power companies. It is based on standards and procedures that allow companies in the biomass sector to prove compliance with legal, regulatory and sustainability requirements related to the production of wood pellets. This standard goes beyond the FSC and PEFC schemes, including aspects that affect the entire value chain. For example, it does not only control gas emissions during the combustion, but also all the emissions produced in the transport and the use of fuels during harvesting and production.
BSL authorisation: Biomass Suppliers List
Premier Biomass has the BSL authorization for the sale of pellets for domestic use in the United Kingdom under sustainability and low greenhouse gas emissions criteria.
The pellets produced by Premier Biomass are certified under the ENplus® regulations, these regulations are based on the European en14961-2 rule, about pellets for industrial and non-industrial use. According to this rule, there are 3 types of pellets:
- ENPlus A1 wood pellets are made of virgin stem wood and chemically untreated residues with a low ash, nitrogen and chlorine content.
- ENPlus A2 wood pellets have a slightly higher ash, nitrogen and/or chlorine content.
- ENPlus B wood pellets can also be made of recycled wood and industrial residues.
