The growing popularity of wood chips and hog fuel in recent years posed new challenges. How to facilitate the trade and make it more transparent? How to harmonise the quality of the many different products on the market? How to build a trustworthy system for the end-users, that will guide them in choosing the right product for their appliance? How to reduce the maintenance costs of boilers, and make sure they perform at their best? And ultimately how to sustain this growth?
GoodChips® is the answer to these questions. First international quality certification for wood chips and hog fuel, it is the result of a concerted effort with all components of the sector, from producers to traders, through boiler manufacturers and consumer associations. The result of this effort is a 12-class scheme (8 for wood chips and 4 for hog fuel), addressing every profile of producer and end-user, from industrial to domestic use.
In the end, GoodChips® comes with a simple promise: to create a fair, harmonised, and transparent market for wood chips and hog fuel, where best practices are distinguished through a certification that covers products, processes, and quality management.
In our view, the right way to boost business for every player along the supply chain, from production to delivery.
