                                  Aim
Directive 2001/77/EC includes in its scope the production of electricity
from biomass, being defined as the biodegradable fraction of products,
waste and residues from agriculture, forestry and related industries, as
well as the biodegradable fraction of industrial and municipal waste.
In this context the EC gave a mandate (M325) to CEN to develop and
validate Technical Specification (TS) concerning SRF for energy
recovery and to transform these TS into European Standards.
To meet these requests, the consortium proposes a holistic validation
programme covering quality management and the validation exercises
for the pre-standards of CEN TC 343.

                                 Aim

QUOVADIS focuses on the organisation and evaluation of the validation
for sampling, sample pre-treatment, and measurement Technical
Specification (TS) provided by CEN/TC 343 “Solid Recovered Fuels”.
The work will include also a validation of TS for Quality Management and
for a SRF classification system.
The endorsement of the new standards in the new Member States it is
also considered.
