DD CEN/TS 15234:2006 Solid biofuels. Fuel quality assurance

DD CEN/TS 15234 defines the procedures to fulfil the quality requirements of solid biofuels. It also describes measures to ensure adequate confidence that the biofuel specification is fulfilled. This Technical Specification covers the whole chain, from supply of raw materials to point of delivery to the end-user.

DD CEN/TS 15234 aims to guarantee the solid biofuel quality through the whole supply chain, from the origin to the delivery of the solid biofuel and provide adequate confidence that specified quality requirements are fulfilled. It serves as a tool to enable the efficient trading of biofuels. This means that:

[1] The end-user can find a biofuel that corresponds to his needs
[2] The producer/supplier can produce a biofuel with defined and consistent properties and describe the biofuel to the customers.

The users of this Technical Specification may integrate the CEN—Solid biofuels, Fuel Quality Assurance Technical Specification in their general quality assurance scheme, e.g. the BS EN ISO 9000 series. If the company does not have a quality management system, this Technical Specification can be used on it´s own to help the supplier in documenting fuel quality and creating adequate confidence between the supplier and the end-user.

This Technical Specification for Fuel Quality Assurance is only concerned with the fuel part. To ensure the efficient use of solid biofuels, the relationship between the fuel and the combustion unit is also important to consider. It is recommended that the end-users ensure that the combustion technology used and the solid biofuels are compatible to achieve an optimised burning process. In addition to high efficiency, the environmental impact is reduced when the combustion process is optimised (e.g. unburnt carbon in the ash will be reduced; the emissions from the flue gases are reduced, etc.).
