QA/QC system

The main goal of this action is to prepare a quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC) system that can help to guarantee the solid biofuel quality through the whole supply chain, from the origin to the delivery of the solid biofuel and provide adequate confidence. With a proper quality assurance procedure and specification of origin and source (i.e. kind of biofuel) in the whole production chain, it is possible to reduce or eliminate the parameters that need analyzing.
According to the terminology of the ISO 9001 a Quality Management system generally consist of Quality Planning, Quality Control, Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement.
