The key objective of the project European Pellet Quality Certification (PellCert) is to create and implement an ambitious and uniform certification system for pellets in Europe, called “ENplus”, which will be used both by the heat and the power markets, for European trade but also for imports.
In addition, sustainability criteria are currently being designed to be part of ENplus or come on top and create an “ENplus GREEN” scheme. The project is run by a unique consortium of 10 pellets associations, ensuring a direct relationship with pellets market players.
The project started mid-2011 and runs for three years. The coordinator for the project is the European Biomass Association (AEBIOM).
Svebio is one of 12 partners in the PellCert project, spread over most of Europe.
