Set up 12 months ago, The UK Pellet Council (UKPC) was established to represent the country’s wood pellet trade and implement the European ENplus wood pellet fuel quality scheme.
ENplus ensures that the supply of wood pellets in the UK is clearly defined and is of a consistent quality for heating purposes.
To support the UKPC, HETAS has been appointed as the UK certification body for ENplus. The scheme is open to pellet producers based in the UK or to traders who wish to market to customers in the UK. HETAS says it will also accept applications from producers in European countries which do not have their own national pellet council but participate in the ENplus scheme.
