Wood pellet quality certification seminar

Thursday 30 March 2017
Quebec Wood Export Bureau and Wood Pellet Association of Canada are teaming up on a wood pellet quality certification seminar to be held in Montreal on March 30, 2017. This seminar – open to all – is designed for new potential applicants for certification, quality managers of already-certified producers, and auditors.

Approximately 80% of wood pellets now sold in the European heating sector are ENpluscertified. Exporters who wish to participate in that market must provide certified product. In the United States, warranties on all new pellet stoves are required by law to provide for the mandatory use of certified pellets. CANplus is one of three quality certification programs that is accepted by the US Environmental Protection Agency. In Canada, some provinces are modifying their emissions standards to require the use of certified pellets.

ENplus and CANplus certifications are nearly identical. The only real difference is that while the ENplus is governed by the European Pellet Council, CANplus is governed by the Wood Pellet Association of Canada. Both certifications can be earned at the same time under the same audit.

Date: March 30, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Location: Hotel Bonaventure, 900 De La Gauchetiere W. Downtown Montreal

Instructors: Chris Wiberg, Biomass Energy Lab and Luut, Brink Control Union Canada

Cost: $75
