Woodpellets2u Achieves ENPlus-A1 Standard
Woodpellets2u is proud to be the first Wood Pellet Distributor in the UK to achieve the ENPlus-A1 standard for the quality of our delivery service.
What is ENPlus?
ENPlus is the European Quality Standard for the manufacture and supply of wood pellets. Manufacturers and Distributors who have the ENPlus standard have been certified as meeting the required quality standards and they are entitled to display the ENPlus logo and their own unique License Number.
When was ENPlus established?
The ENPlus quality certification was agreed upon by the European Pellet Council in January 2011.
How Does ENPlus work?
Both wood pellet manufacturers and distributors should be licensed as ENPlus suppliers. This is because both the manufacturing process and the delivery process are critical in ensuring that high quality pellets are delivered to the end user.
Manufacturers are required to carry out annual plant audits and regular pellet testing by an accredited organisation. Production and internal quality control procedures are also regularly checked to ensure they comply with the standards required
Distributors have to meet quality standards for vehicles, driver training and documentation. After passing an initial assessment, continued licensing is carried out by self certification, but with distributors subject to random inspections.
Every ENPlus licensed member also has to ensure that all pellets can be traced back through the supply chain to source so that any problem areas can be identified and remedied.
What are the ENPlus Quality Classes?
ENPlus consists of three quality classes: ENPlus-A1, ENPlus-A2 and EN-B.
|Diameter||mm||6 or 8 +/- 1||6 or 8 +/- 1||6 or 8 +/- 1|
|Length||mm||3.15 - 40||3.15 - 40||3.15 - 40|
