Global pellet market to reach $9 billion by 2020

The global market for pellets is expected to double in the next seven years, growing from a $4 billion market to $9 billion, Michele Rebiere with Viridis Energy Inc. told attendees at the Pellet Supply Chain Summit, March 24. The summit preceded the International Biomass Conference being held March 24-27 in Orlando, Fla.

Speaking in the closing panel of the day, Rebiere said the largest market, by far, is the European, with 20 million metrics tons (mmt) used in 2013 for both industrial power and residential heat. That is forecast to grow to 28 mmt by 2015 and 42 mmt by 2020. The North American market, is now at 4 mmt and forecast to be 5 mmt in 2015, but she added, are understated going out further. “I think the forecast in North American will increase substantially,” she said added, as the interest in cofiring with coal is likely to increase which the forecasts won’t include until projects are announced. The Asian market is expect to grow as well, from 1 mmt in 2013, to 3 mmt in 20…

Racing for Lowering The Temperature Of The Earth

The Fastest Route For The Wood Pellets Production

Pellet Fuel from Corn Cobs and Stalks

Energy Production from Pellet Fuel

The pellets fuel are a modern form of densified biomass offering interesting opportunities for development of Renewable Energy in Indonesia, consisting of wood pellets and biomass pellets. Wood pellets derived from wood and biomass pellets derived from biomass such as agricultural wastes and plantations such as oil palm empty fruit bunches. Pellet fuel that be produced could have a large variation in quality because of the raw materials and production technologies. Technology for pellet fuel utilization in thermal route for energy production which is burning and gasification has been applied.

The production of energy from pellets fuel in the form of heat and electricity. Heating with pellets fuel is normally quite simple and the need for inspection and care of the burner and boiler is often limited. However, combustion problems can arise e.g. if the amount of ash increases causing the system to slag and the efficiency to decrease. These problems are often caused by the low quality of…

Indonesia Can Develop Biomass Energy

Lack of non-renewable energy sources and an increasing need for renewable energy sources has forced Indonesia to shift gears and refocus its attention, it was revealed during the UN Framework Conference on Climate Change.

“Indonesia has tremendous potential to produce biomass, the market is there, we just need a policy to move forward,” Yetti Rusli, the special staffer for climate change at the Forestry Ministry told the Jakarta Globe during the side event of the conference.

“It’s no longer enough to have our full attention to anticipating climate change or emission reduction, it’s time for us to think about added values” she said.

Yetti said Indonesia could be one of the biggest biomass producers worldwide with its massive potential.

“We are very fortunate to have sunshine 11 hours a day, not to mention we are only second to Brazil when it comes to richness of biodiversity,” she said.

Unlike Brazil, Yetti said, Indonesia has the upper hand with most land being owned by the state.
