Info and support Qlima Heater Fuel

High-tech production and filling plant in Ghent

High-Tech Productie- en Afvulfabriek in Gent

Qlima Premium Quality Fuels are produced and filled in our own plant. We look after the entire process, including purchasing and storage of raw materials, and the filling, packaging, labelling, and transport of the final product. And everything according to European regulations. Our pellets are distributed in twenty countries. And we can be reached 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, by consumers, retailers and transporters.

Ship-to-shop concept supplying fuel in its purest form

In short, this concept is called ‘ship to shop’. This concept has been perfected during the past 35 years. As a result, the reliability and quality of Qlima fuels are unequalled. Our highly qualified and extremely dedicated staff have continually been improving the ‘ship-to-shop’ production concept. ‘Ship to shop’ offers important guarantees, which is why Qlima fuels are called ‘Premium Quality Fuels’. Our largest trump is the short line between refinery and consumer.

‘Ship to shop’ stands for:

  • Authority: a dedicated team of experts in heater fuel
  • Market leader: in Europe
  • European regulations: we go beyond the European regulations regarding production and product & packaging directives
  • Purest fuels: reliable pure raw materials, without any contamination by external storage or transport
  • Reliability of delivery: from stock, via tenders, or ‘just in time’
  • Traceability: from bulk and production batch up to and including fuel in the can. Each can has its own traceable code
  • Innovation: we are always looking for the best solution for people and the environment
  • Responsibility: we are responsible for the entire process from ship to consumer

Our team in Ghent invests a lot of time in reseach and development, with high-quality fuels as a result. And we go further. We are continuously looking for groundbreaking innovations throughout the entire process, from purchase, production, filling, packaging, storage, up to and including the transport and delivery of our products.

Here are some important innovations by Qlima, demonstrating our leadership on the market. For example, we produce:

  • ISO paraffin: the purest form of heating fuel, produced by means of the gas-to-liquid (GTL) process
  • PET can: recycleable, lightweight, and produced on-site, resulting in a smaller CO2 footprint and therefore more environment-friendly
