It is a private quality and sustainability certification system developed through several European projects of the same name (BIOmasud financed with ERDF funds under the Interreg IV-B program) and Biomasud Plus (financed with the H2020 program) and belongs to the international consortium of the projects. It is a certification system focused on Mediterranean biofuels for domestic use: wood pellets, olive stones wood chips, dried fruit shells, olive tree and vineyard prunings. For solid biofuels with international standards (wood pellets, chips, …) the system was based on them (ISO-17225). For the rest, throughout the aforementioned projects, own BIOmasud standards have been developed that have subsequently been approved by the Spanish committee for the normalization of biofuels CTN164 (UNE-164003 for olive stones and UNE-164004 for dried fruit shells.

Apart from quality, the system also includes sustainability requirements such as the carbon footprint, the energy invested to produce the biofuel or the sustainable origin of the raw material. The rights of the BIOmasud® brand in Spain are held by AVEBIOM and CIEMAT.

  • Quality
  • Sustainability
  • Traceability


The traceability system is implemented through an on-line traceability platform. Both traceability and sustainability requirements are in accordance with the REDII directive approved by the European Parliament.

Why getting certified

Certification brings benefits to solid biofuel producers.


The certification generates in the consumer a feeling of confidence, since the product that he buys meets certain requirements that will increase the efficiency of the equipment. A certified biofuel guarantees constant quality.


There are regulations (laws about air quality, instalations regulation, Eco-design, …) that legislate to maintain air quality in acceptable conditions, among other factors, limiting emissions into the atmosphere. For this, a quality and standardized fuel is essential that allows equipment to operate more efficiently.


The certification ensures the quality of the biofuel and the improvement in the combustion efficiency, this allows end users to acquire recognition of certified biofuels.

Several sorts of labels

After the acceptance of new solid biofuels in the Biomasud certification, it was necessary to divide the certifications into two types of labels. Although both refer to domestic installations, each of them covering different needs.

Small installations

Installations smaller than 400 kW.

Big installations

Installations bigger than 400 kW.

Why buying certified biofuels?

Certification guarantees consumers certain advantages.


Biofuel certification ensures constant quality that will increase the efficiency of your equipment.


The reduction of emissions, the origin of the raw material, … Using certified biofuels helps to improve the sustainability on the use of the planet’s resources.


The BIOmasud® traceability system ensures transparency in forest management from the forest to your home.


The BIOmasud® certification protects the end user by forcing certified companies to provide a complaints system where they can reflect the incidents found.


Biofuel factories generate employment in rural areas, attracting new people to these areas and revitalizing their industrial system.
