Bioenergy Europe’s role: Project Partner



The market for solid biofuels is growing rapidly, and the demand for raw materials is increasing. Consequently, it is aimed at extending the raw material basis for biofuel production covering also wooden materials of lower quality as well as agricultural raw materials and residues, which often show unfavourable ash melting properties.


  • Development of a test method for the assessment of the ash melting characteristics of solid biofuels;
  • Specification of melting classes for solid biofuels;
  • Work out a proposal for a European standard for the development test method;
  • Development of a proposal for the implementation of the procedure as a testing.
