Quality certification of wood fuel

Woodsure certified fuel types

Woodsure assess and certify the five most common forms of wood-based biomass fuel, each with different attributes and qualities that provide a flexible range of storage and use options appropriate to differing needs.

Types of Fuel

The types of fuel that Woodsure test and approve are:-

Fuel Types: Woodchip
Woodchip – chipped woody biomass in the form of pieces with a defined particle size, produced by chopping with sharp mechanical cutters.
Fuel Types: Pellets
Pellets (wood only) – compressed biofuel made from pulverised biomass, usually in a cylindrical form, random length typically 5-30mm.
Fuel Types: Briquette
Briquettes (wood only) – solid biofuel, formed as cubes or into cylindrical lengths, produced by compressing pulverised biomass.
Fuel Types: Hog
Hog fuel (a.k.a. ‘Shred’) – chipped woody biomass in the form of pieces with a defined particle size, produced by a machine with a blunt hammer action.
Fuel Types: Firewood
Firewood – hard and soft wood defined by log length, diameter and moisture content. Kiln dried (<20%) or naturally seasoned (<25%).
