This European Standard defines terms concerned in all standardisation work within the scope of CEN/TC 335. According to CEN/TC 335 this European Standard is applicable to solid biofuels originating from the following sources:
- products from agriculture and forestry;
- vegetable waste from agriculture and forestry;
- vegetable waste from the food processing industry;
- wood waste, with the exception of wood waste which may contain halogenated organic compounds or heavy metals as a result of treatment with wood preservatives or coating, and which includes in particular such wood waste from construction- and demolition waste;
- cork waste;
NOTE 1 CEN/TC 335 considers that wood waste, including wood waste originating from construction and demolition waste are included in the scope of CEN/TC 335 and of the scope of the mandate M/298 "solid biofuels", unless they contain halogenated organic compounds or heavy metals as a result of treatment with wood preservatives or coatings .
NOTE 2 There are more terms included within this European Standard as covered by the mandate due to clarification and differentiation.
NOTE 3 Changes of ownership of the fibrous vegetable waste between paper and pulp company and the operator of the coincineration plant in which the waste is used does not affect the inclusion of the waste in the scope of mandate M/298.
Other standards with a different scope than this European Standard can have different definitions than this standard.
