Wood Pellet Testing

Wood pellet quality analysis and testing.

Wood pellets are commercially available heating fuel source, made from compressed wood products, including sawdust. Intertek tests the quality of wood pellets for key parameters, including heat generation value, trace metals, and other quality standards. Wood pellet testing is available through Intertek's global biofuel laboratory testing network.
