Panel - Global Wood Pellets Markets

  • Japan’s demand for imported biomass has grown rapidly over the past 7 years.  As demand for pellet fuel continues to increase and as Japan codifies its sustainability and carbon footprint requirements, what are your opinions about where those pellets will be produced? 
  • There is much talk about so-called black pellets made from torrefaction or steam explosion.  What is your opinion about black pellets for power generation and steel making?
  • How do you see the current bout of inflation impacting the pellet markets in terms of supply and demand, and in terms of cost?
  • Given that most of the press and policy pronouncements in Japan about the future of renewable energy are about wind, solar, energy storage, and hydrogen (and sometimes ammonia), do you think that government policies in Japan will include the use of pellets to replace coal in power generation by the major utilities?
Moderated by:
