Solid assurance for wood-based fuel from HETAS

Published:  07 July, 2010

The quality of wood-based fuel can now be certified as part of a new scheme launched by HETAS. The Solid Biomass Assurance Scheme has been launched with the support of funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and will enable producers of wood fuel and biomass to market their products using the recognised HETAS SBAS logo to provide customers with a mark of quality assurance.

At the launch of the scheme, project manager Mark Russell, explained, ‘Good-quality fuel is essential for safe and efficient combustion, whereas poor-quality fuel will burn badly — wasting energy and money. At the moment there is no clear labelling for wood or biomass fuel, but SBAS addresses this issue and can provide consumers the confidence they are choosing the best product appropriate to their appliance.’
