The European market of energy biomass pellets and briquettes was formed six years ago. Obviously, based on literature review and practical experience, consistent and unified quality standard of energy pellets and briquettes production doesn't final yet. Such standards have been adopted by Austria (ÖNORM M1735 for briquettes and pellets), Sweden (SS 187120 for pellets and SS 187121 for briquettes) and Germany (DIN 51731 for briquettes and pellets). Other countries utilize mentioned standards. For example, Finland utilizes the Swedish standard. European Pellet Center (EPC), with its main office in Denmark and operational coordination of 18 European countries, has established standard method of pellets analysis and classification. Objective of this paper is analysis of European standards, data harmonization and recommendation of quality standard compilation for pelleted and briquetted biofuels in Republic of Serbia.
