The Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI) Fuel Standards have been significantly modified as a result of a notice promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that EPA would likely regulate pellet fuel through its New Source Performance Standards for Wood Heaters (NSPS). This session is for the pellet fuel retailer and will explain the modifications, as well as the importance, of the standards program to the industry, particularly the retail sector. The session will also cover the impact of the NSPS on pellet stoves and touch on the new ASTM test for pellet heaters.
Participants will learn:
• Key differences between the current standards program and the program released in 2008
• New bag labels and key points retailers can use to help consumers choose the correct fuel for their stoves
• Information from the EPA on how pellet stoves will be tested and certified.
