We are happy to announce that ENplus® has reached a significant milestone. As the world-leading certification scheme for wood pellets, we now have a total of 1000 active certificates of companies in 46 countries around the globe.
By being recognised and embraced by such a substantial number of producers, traders, and service providers, ENplus® has proven to be a major factor on the global wood pellet market. Today, more than ever, quality is considered to be the most valuable characteristic of the entire supply chain.
Ensuring harmonised quality levels for the production and the distribution of wood pellets is a compelling benefit for the end-users, but it is also a definite sign for the stable progress of the industry itself.
This notable achievement comes as a result of the consistent efforts and the dedication of Bioenergy Europe, our national licensers (AIEL, AVEBIOM, Propellet France, ProPellet Switzerland, ProPellets Austria, DEPI, WPAC, Czech Pellets Cluster, AIMMP, LatBio, LitBioma, UK Pellet Council), all ENplus® listed certification, inspection and testing bodies, and the national promoting associations (Polish Pellet Council and SVEBIO).
We would like to express our appreciation to all our partners and to all the certified companies that have given us their trust and have contributed to the development of the certification scheme. Thanks to your active involvement we can proudly state that almost 12 million tonnes* of wood pellets have met our criteria for quality. Moreover, this number of certified pellets represents about 77% of European heating market**.
