    So each bag of fuel is individually tested?

    Don't know...? Per bag would seem a bit impractical. Per batch might work. But all of this requires 3rd party testing, so even more time is required for feedback/results, labeling, then shipment

    "...all participating mills will have the option of labeling each bag of pellets with a quality sticker developed by PFI to indicate which grade of fuel is in each bag, including premium, standard or utility."

    :eek: Can't wait to get hold of some of them utility grade pellets for my stove...

    This is great news...maybe not for Inferno. Essentially what they are doing is opening 3 mills to PFI to make random inspections. PFI up to this point is completely voluntary...and the mill gets to pick the bags they send for testing.
