  1. Important - We have been informed that we will have to pay a fee to be on the BSL list from September as we only get money from our customers, that fee will be passed on to you. They are also proposing that for every tonne we sell they want a cut, again passed on to you.

    We are opposing this increase, the BSL is run by Gemserve Ltd, who are owned by Global power companies.

    A list of Gemserves Shareholders is here     https://www.endole.co.uk/company/04419878/gemserv-limited…

    They are saying if we don't pay to go on the list we wont be able to sell to RHI customers.

    This is nothing but corporate black mail, and Gemserve are running a corporate protection racket, while restricting our right to trade.

    So to Gemserve and the BSL, go and piss off, you are nothing but corporate leeches, there is absolutely no need for the BSL so rather than getting customers to pay for it so Gemserve get a profit, just get rid of it completely.

  2. We have had quite a few conversations with customers, installers and other suppliers over what seems to be a higher amount of dustier pellets around, our opinion is that this is linked to the cheaper European pellets that have flooded the market since the Euro exchange rate made it attractive to import foreign pellets.

    These pellets have travelled thousands of miles, and will invariably be subjected to vibration either in the hold of a ship or in a container, or the journey form the Russian mills to the Baltic ports,  and this is going to cause dust, especially with opto 7 - 10 days of constant movement, and its going to be the same for the bagged or blown pellets. 

    The European pellets can be cheaper, but there is a downside, in that they've travelled from Eastern Europe, and this could cause dust.

    Our premium pellets are made in the UK, so have travelled hundreds of miles instead of thousands, thats why our pellets are never dusty, and thats why we have been selling the same pellets for over 8 years, because our customers want the quality and consistency that our pellets provide.
