ENplus is the highest certification organization for pellet manufacturers, established in Germany. Pellets that have on their packaging one of the ENplus certificates, A1 or A2 class, are produced under strict control, highest criteria and guarantee quality and characteristics that are listed on the packaging itself. In other words, you get what you paid for. For a manufacturer to obtain the EN Plus certificate, it must meet high quality parameters, a criteria that applies for both A1 and A2 class, so the only parameter that distinguishes A1 and A2 class is the ash residue or for a pellet to be ranked with A1 should have a percentage of ash residue less than 0.7%, while for A2 class that percentage should be less than 1.5%.
