The Pellet Fuels Institute announced last week that New England Wood Pellet, LLC has officially qualified under the Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI) pellet fuel standards program. New England Wood Pellet, LLC (NEWP) is the first pellet manufacturer that can display the PFI Quality Mark on their bags, indicating that they are producing pellets that are compliant with the fuel grade listed on their bags.

The PFI Standards Program is a third party certification program providing standard specifications for residential and commercial grade fuel. The Pellet Fuels Institute, in its role as the leading authority on the North American pellet industry, established the standards program as a mechanism to ensure consumers and retailers that the fuel consistency and quality matches manufacturer claims found on bags of fuel and other informational materials.

“NEWP’s qualification to the PFI Standards Program is a significant milestone for the industry and PFI,” said PFI Executive Director, Jennifer Hedrick. “Our members and collaborators have put thousands of hours into the development of this program and it’s rewarding to enroll the first company. There are other companies working to qualify for the program, and we are expecting similar announcements in the months to come.”

According to Luann Lafreniere, Quality Manager for New England Wood Pellet, LLC, “New England Wood Pellet, LLC has always shown a strong commitment to the production of quality wood pellets. With three operating plants, we concern ourselves with pellet quality and consistency. To do that we focus on process and in-house testing. We are pleased that the PFI Standards Program now encompasses process control as well as third-party quality testing. With our processes in place we felt we were ready to qualify under the program and at the same time encourage other manufacturers to follow suit.”
