— 1.2 by-products and residues from wood processing industry;

— 1.4 blends and mixtures.
This document covers hog fuel, which is produced with blunt tools, and wood chips, which are produced with sharp tools.
NOTE 1 1.2.2 By-products and residues from wood processing industry, which can include chemically treated material (e.g. glued, painted, laminated) are not allowed include halogenated organic compounds or heavy metals at levels higher than those in typical virgin material values (see Annex B in ISO 17225-1) or higher than typical values of the country of origin.
