Tech Due Diligence & Rating Service

As a collaborative effort of TRADERSbiomass and BEA Institut für Bioenergie GmbH, We are offering performance Indications certification and technical evaluation services to producers of biomass (mostly pellet mills) via our platform.

Why do I need a BEA Tech DD certification (a few advantages) :


1. Increased trade comfort : Generally sellers face some initial difficulty in making buyers feel comfortable and credible about them and their products, as buyer do not know them yet completely (neither by name or by documental proofs), taking this certification will make a even ground for both the parties to trade.

2. Less time consuming and in-expensive : Normally, the process of ensuring supplier’s reliability and credibility at early stage is very time-consuming and expensive job, which also involves a lot of traveling cost and resource planing. This is not at all efficient for sellers and buyers individually. Hence getting this work done by a internationally known third party (BEA) is always a better choice for the whole trade cycle and the parties involved

3. Increased Global Visibility : For registered users, it is always advantages to get certified rating from BEA, as after certification, We will be publishing your credentials on our website & system, your rating will be visible to all users in your profile, product profile and your posted deal at all times. It will not only give you the edge over other sellers but it will also give you trusted premium access to all buyers on our platform.

4. Better rating performance, attract more buyers : Majorly all buyer face some or the other difficulties to make initial relationships with suppliers of biomass across the globe. To make this easier, we have made a future ready biomass exchange. However only on registering with us and posting a deal on our platform, won’t make significant difference to buyer’s perspective towards a supplier. To break this stigma, BEA as a reliable third (neutral) party, will do an independent assessment of suppliers and submit the results on our platform. These results will be published widely with the respective supplier details. There are high chances buyers will take this opportunity to contact you for their future supply requirements based on your rating performances. Hence concluding a deal will becomes a-lot more easier.

That means, if you have a BEA rating, you are a trusted supplier on our platform…

The Only Thing More Expensive Than Education is Ignorance
– Benjamin Franklin

  • Within the basic performance indication the expected capacity of a given pellet plant is evaluated using a sophisticated calculation tool. This tool is based on a database of performance influencing facts of real plants. It estimates the effect of combinations of various influences based on and derived from the experience of pellet plant auditors, pellet plant machinery producers and pellet production plants. It considers only infrastructure, technical and economic facts not human influence especially the qualification and motivation of the staff.
    The evaluation within the basic performance indication is based exclusively on data provided by the client within a fixed form. In the extended performance indication it is extended by personal investigations of experienced experts. The specific environment of a plant is questioned, human influence are considered. The real technical setup of plants are evaluated on more detailed documents such as process flow sheets, performance sheets, technical description of components, acceptance protocols, permission documents, images of the site, quality test protocols of product, infrastructure, etc.
    Technical Evaluation is a kind of engineering service (owners engineer) that is offered separately and will only benefit the companies who are done with Extended performance indication. It will be strongly limited and exclusive consultancy service to them for trying to improve their production significantly. This element is a standardized and slightly modified technical due diligence of a pellet production site. It includes technical and economic evaluation of existing plants (or planned projects). It includes the validation of the general project scope and the business model. It includes a site visit by experts with an on-site verification and evaluation of all technical equipment.
