This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 17225-1, Solid biofuels - Fuel specifications and classes - Part 1: General requirements, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 17225-1 (first edition, 2014-05-01).
This Standard is one of seven Standards developed by ISO/TC 238 on Solid Biofuels that are being adopted by CSA Group under the series Fuel specifications and classes, which consists of the following:
a) ISO 17225-1, Part 1: General requirements;
b) ISO 17225-2, Part 2: Graded wood pellets;
c) ISO 17225-3, Part 3: Graded wood briquettes;
d) ISO 17225-4, Part 4: Graded wood chips;
e) ISO 17225-5, Part 5: Graded firewood;
f) ISO 17225-6, Part 6: Graded non-woody pellets; and
g) ISO 17225-7, Part 7: Graded non-woody briquettes.
The objective of the ISO 17225 series is to provide clear classification principles for solid biofuels and to serve as a tool to enable efficient trading of biofuels and enable a common understanding between producers and users. It will also facilitate authority permission procedures and reporting.
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This part of ISO 17225 determines the fuel quality classes and specifications for solid biofuels of raw and processed materials originating from
a) forestry and arboriculture;
b) agriculture and horticulture;
Chemically treated material may not include halogenated organic compounds or heavy metals at levels higher than those in typical virgin material values (see Annex B) or higher than typical values of the country of origin.
NOTE Raw and processed material includes woody, herbaceous, fruit, aquatic biomass and biodegradable waste originating from above sectors.
