Solid biofuel testing
The Bioenergy Association recommends that wood fuel be only purchased from suppliers who have a formal quality management system. The recommendations for quality management are set out in the following guide:
An appropriate quality management system would be supported by regular testing of the fuel being delivered to customers. Day-to-day testing may be done on-site but this will be calibrated by at least monthly external testing.
Accredited Solid Biofuel Suppliers have demonstrated to an independent party that they have appropriate quality management systems and that you can rely on their ability to consistently supply your contracted fuel to the required specification.
