2015 – A year of change in standards for solid biofuels

We would like to inform you, that this year 2015 is a breakthrough with respect to the standards for solid biofuels.
European standards are being changed into international standards, marked EN ISO with a scope of validity covering countries with implemented systems of ISO and EN standards; it means that quality of solid biofuels in accordance with these standards will be demanded worldwide. From this point of view, it is suitable to renew issued certificates, since the validity of the ČSN EN 14961 standard has expired in all the items. 
A list of new standards is available here.
Currently, we are preparing a seminar entitled Requirements and testing of solid biofuels. Should you be interested in receiving terms and the program, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will gladly respond to all your inquiries at
