September 26, 2012, Vancouver, BC – Control Union Canada has announced that it will expand its presence in the Canadian market by opening an operational office in Quebec City in October to serve Eastern Canada.

Control Union, headquartered in Rotterdam, Netherlands, with an office in Vancouver, plays a key role in the supply chain of getting pellets from Canada to Europe.

The company certifies product as sustainable using programs such as PEFC, FSC, SFI and Green Gold Label and certifies product quality. They also perform ship inspections before they are loaded and sample cargo, testing pellets for calorific value, ash content and chemical composition. In Europe, Control Union also supervises unloading of ships as well as monitoring the condition of cargo while in storage for off-gassing and self-heating and organizes trans-shipping of pellets between various European terminals and utility companies.
