Great Northern Timber Resources (GNTR) has been working diligently over the past several months to achieve this new level of product certification. The Sustainable Biomass Program is a unique certification system designed for woody biomass, mostly in the form of wood pellets and wood chips, used in industrial, large-scale energy production. SBP’s vision is an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable woody biomass supply chain that contributes to a low carbon economy. SBP has developed a certification system to provide assurance that woody biomass is sourced from legal and sustainable sources. Read more at; https://sbp-cert.org/docs/SBP_Overview_Final_Mar18.pdf
