Solid biofuels - Vocabulary (ISO 16559:2022)

This document establishes a vocabulary for solid biofuels. This document only includes raw and processed material originating from
—    forestry and arboriculture,
—    agriculture and horticulture, and
—    aquaculture.
NOTE 1   Chemically treated material cannot include halogenated organic compounds or heavy metals at levels higher than those in typical virgin material values (see also ISO 17225-1:2021, Annex B) or higher than typical values of the country of origin.
NOTE 2   Raw and processed material includes woody, herbaceous, fruit and aquatic biomass and biodegradable waste originating from above sectors.
Materials originating from different recycling processes of end-of-life-products are outside the scope of this document but relevant terms are included for information. Liquid biofuels (ISO/TC 28/SC 7), natural gas (ISO/TC 193) and solid recovered fuels (ISO/TC 300) are outside the scope of this document.

Biogene Festbrennstoffe - Terminologie (ISO 16559:2022)

Dieses Dokument legt die Terminologie für biogene Festbrennstoffe fest. Dieses Dokument umfasst nur Rohmaterial und verarbeitetes Material, das aus folgenden Quellen stammt:
- Forstwirtschaft und Baumkultur;
- Landwirtschaft und Gartenbau;
- Aquakultur.
ANMERKUNG 1 Chemisch behandeltes Material enthält keine halogenierten organischen Verbindungen oder Schwermetalle in Konzentrationen, die über den typischen Werten für erntefrisches Material (siehe auch ISO 17225 1:2021, Anhang B) oder den typischen Werten für das Herkunftsland liegen.
ANMERKUNG 2 Roh  und verarbeitetes Material umfasst holzartige Biomasse, halmgutartige Biomasse, Biomasse von Früchten und aquatische Biomasse sowie biologisch abbaubaren Abfall, der aus den vorstehend genannten Bereichen stammt.
Materialien, die aus verschiedenen Recyclingprozessen von Produkten am Ende des Lebensweges stammen, fallen nicht in den Anwendungsbereich dieses Dokuments, zugehörige Begriffe wurden jedoch zur Information aufgenommen. Flüssige Biokraftstoffe (ISO/TC 28/SC 7), Erdgas (ISO/TC 193) und feste Sekundärbrennstoffe (ISO/TC 300) fallen nicht in den Anwendungsbereich dieses Dokuments.

Biocombustibles solides - Vocabulaire (ISO 16559:2022)

Le présent document établit un vocabulaire pour les biocombustibles solides. Le présent document ne couvre que les matières premières et les matières issues de processus provenant de:
—    la sylviculture et l'arboriculture;
—    l'agriculture et l'horticulture; et
—    l'aquaculture.
NOTE 1   Les niveaux de composés organiques halogénés ou de métaux lourds inclus dans les matériaux traités chimiquement ne peuvent pas dépasser les valeurs des matériaux vierges (voir également l'Annexe B de l'ISO 17225-1:2021) ou les valeurs types du pays d'origine.
NOTE 2   Les matières premières et les matières transformées comprennent la biomasse ligneuse, herbacée, fruitière et aquatique ainsi que des déchets biodégradables provenant des secteurs cités ci-dessus.
Les matériaux provenant de différents processus de recyclage de produits en fin de vie ne relèvent pas du domaine d'application du présent document, mais les termes qui s'y rapportent sont inclus à titre d'information. Les biocombustibles liquides (ISO/TC 28/SC 7), le gaz naturel (ISO/TC 193) et les combustibles solides de récupération (ISO/TC 300) ne relèvent pas du domaine d'application du présent document.

Trdna biogoriva - Slovar (ISO 16559:2022)

Ta mednarodni standard določa terminologijo in definicije za trdna biogoriva. Ta standard v skladu s področjem uporabe standarda ISO/TC 238 vključuje le neobdelane in obdelane materiale, ki izvirajo iz:
–   gozdarstva in gojenja dreves,
–   kmetijstva in vrtnarstva,
–   gojenja vodnih organizmov.
OPOMBA 1: Surovi in obdelani materiali vključujejo lesno, zelnato, sadno in vodno biomaso iz zgoraj omenjenih sektorjev.
OPOMBA 2: Kemično obdelan material ne vsebuje večje količine halogeniranih organskih spojin ali težkih kovin, kot jih vsebujejo običajni primarni materiali, ali količine, večje od običajne v državi izvora.
Materiali, ki izvirajo iz različnih procesov recikliranja izrabljenih izdelkov, niso zajeti, vendar so pomembni izrazi vključeni za informativne namene. Področja, ki jih zajemata standarda ISO/TC28/SC7 »Tekoča biogoriva« in ISO/TC193 »Zemeljski plin«, niso zajeta.
Drugi standardi z drugačnim področjem uporabe kot ta mednarodni standard lahko vsebujejo drugačne definicije.
