Abstract: The use of biofuels has proven to be fundamental in decreasing the impact of human activities on the environment and also in contributing to a more sustainable development. Wooden biomasses have historically been used for heating purposes and are still being used worldwide. The valorisation of wood products goes through certifications, in particular the ENplus certification guarantees quality and the FSC and PEFC certifications guarantee the origin of the products by forests managed according to the principles of sustainability.
