Report: North American Wood Pellet Exports to Europe have doubled in the past two years

Posted on : 11 Mar, 2011

Wood pellet exports from the U.S. and Canada to Europe have doubled in the past two years, with 1.6 million tons of wood pellets shipped from the two countries to the Netherlands, U.K. and Belgium in 2010, according to a report by Wood Resources International LLC.


The European Union’s goal of reaching 20 percent renewable energy by 2020 can be attributed to the increased demand, as many countries have ramped up their consumption of woody biomass in the form of wood pellets and wood chips in the past few years to meet the renewable target, the report said. More than 11 million tons of wood pellets were consumed in the EU in 2010, up 7 percent from the previous year.


The report also predicts that higher oil prices will benefit wood pellet exporters in North America, and that shipments to Europe can be expected to increase during 2011.


(Source: Biomass Magazine, March 8, 2011)


Among the key presentations at 2nd Biomass Rotterdam Trade & Power conference in Rotterdam is one by leading biomass company Enviva LP, touching specifically on the supply chain of wood pellets from US to Europe.


2 other papers to lookout for are from latest additions to the already authoritative panel from international supply markets - Ekman & Co AB will touch on supply growth and outlook from the Baltic and Scandinavian region, while Africa Renewable Ltd. will give an address on emerging biomass pellets exports from Africa.
