The FHP directive on energy wood reception and acceptance forms the basis for the transparent design of the takeover of energy wood at the interface between buyer and seller. It is therefore relevant both for operators of systems for the energetic utilization of energy wood and for traders of various energy wood assortments.
Regulations for the takeover of energy wood
The importance of energy wood in the form of round timber, wood chips and shredder wood has increased significantly in Austria since around the turn of the millennium. The way in which this fuel is measured is therefore of great monetary importance.
With the “FHP Directive for the takeover of energy wood by weight and energy content" developed by Holzforschung Austria, companies have reliable rules at their disposal which ensure a practical takeover based on scientific findings and normative foundations.
Our independent auditors regularly monitor the correct takeover of energy wood in heating and CHP plants, which contributes to the transparency between buyer and seller.
We offer on-site training and exams on energy wood takeover and woodchip quality for the takeover staff or develop individually tailored training for other interested market participants.
