Ignite – Woodfuel Quality Standards

Who is this for?

Ignite is an innovative training programme of practical seminars and interactive workshops with a focus on woodfuel. mwmac Ltd are the only other training provider to be approved by the RDI to deliver the Ignite suite of courses, on their behalf.

This course looks at how to ensure your woodfuel is compliant with the Timber Standards for Heat and Electricity covering the legal and sustainability criteria and the requirements of the Biomass Suppliers List.

The course also looks at how woodfuel properties can affect compliance with standards, how to specify and test fuel, and match fuel specifications to combustion systems.

The course provides an introduction to the BS EN ISO solid biofuels standard that has been adopted in the UK and reviews the various woodfuel quality assurance schemes and what relevance these may have to your business.
