In July 2009 our seasoned firewood became HETAS Approved under the Solid Biomass Assurance Scheme. This was very exciting as we were one of only two firewood producers in the UK to have attained this certification and the first in Wales!
The HETAS Approved scheme has developed and has since been replaced with the Woodsure Assurance Scheme. Woodsure is an independent body which offers independent approval for woodfuels. The Solid Biomass Assurance Scheme certifies fuels that meet set criteria of relevant European standards. It gives customers the ability to differentiate between suppliers and sets a common standard that is publicly regognised. This means all of the firewood we produce and season has undergone rigorous quality control and systems are in place to ensure we consistently produce high quality seasoned logs.
We are externally assessed by Woodsure and receive yearly audits of the manufacturing, storage, quality control and working practices of our product and business to ensure it meets the Woodsure standard.
Our firewood is now listed on The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL). BSL is a list of Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) eligible woodfuels. The aim of BSL is to provide RHI participants with a simple way to demonstrate that their fuel complies with the RHI sustainability criteria for Woodfuel. For further information click here
