What assessment process does LC Energy undergo to achieve the Woodsure Certification?

This comprises regular quality assurance checks analysing wood chip samples to ensure they meet the specific particle size, moisture content and calorific value, which is sent for independent testing.
Compliance assessments are also carried out to ensure that LC Energy meets the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) eligibility criteria, which includes sourcing wood from sustainable forests, complying with relevant environmental regulations, and maintaining transparency in our supply chain.
Furthermore, frequent site audits are conducted to assess LC Energy’s facilities and processes, including the handling, storage, and transportation of our wood chip.
