New Zealand wood pellets get top European Standards approval
New Zealand's Nature's Flame fuel has been endorsed by DIN CERTCO, Europe's leading product quality standards body for residential wood pellet fuel. DIN CERTCO is an arm of Germany's Institute for Standardisation and its wood pellet certification criteria is being used as the basis of a proposed European Standard.
Achieving certification required Nature's Flame to demonstrate quality assurance through its entire production chain, says Nature's Flame General Manager Kerry Ellem. 'It's a difficult and reasonably expensive certification to get and to maintain because it certifies our processes as well as the quality of the final product,' says Ellem. 'It is the proxy European quality standard and having the DINplus certification mark on our packaging is an important part of what customers look for in selecting wood pellet fuel.'
