  • In all biomass projects it is mandatory to use 100% renewable biofuel. In non-industrial thermal installations of less than 1 MW, the biomass equipment used must prove that it meets the requirements for seasonal energy efficiency and emissions established in the Ecodesign Regulation, and the biofuel must be certified with the highest quality according to any of these standards. : UNE-EN-ISO 17225-2 (class A1); UNE-EN-ISO 17225-4, (class 1); 164003 (class A1); or 164004 (class A1).
