Meeting ENplus

PBE Fuels was one of the first traders in the UK to become accredited as an ENplus A1 trader.

Meeting ENplus A1The primary aim of the ENplus accreditation is to ensure that the customer receives fuel of a predetermined European specification. Although there are three quality tiers to this accreditations, the vast majority of wood pellets produced and sold in the UK meet the highest quality class of ENplus A1.

The accreditation ensures that wood pellets produced and sold meet the required standard throughout the supply chain from production to delivery to the end user.
In line with the ENplus A1, we manage quality by monitoring our wood pellets at all stages throughout our storage and delivery systems.

This includes :

  • Sampling all goods delivered into our stores
  • Regular monitoring of stocked wood pellets
  • Sampling and testing of products loaded into delivery vehicles
  • Regular staff training to ensure effective wood pellet delivery

Enplus also stipulated the pellet specification which must be maintained, how the product is stored and transported and procedures in order to maintain the audit trail.
Greater detail relating to the quality assurance requirements under the ENplus accreditation is available via our ‘Resources’ page.
