Global wood pellet demand to reach 50 million metric tons by 2024

By RISI | September 04, 2014
Global wood pellet demand is rapidly expanding as consumers, businesses and regulators look for alternatives to fossil fuels. Globally, wood pellet demand is projected to grow from an estimated 23 million metric tons in 2014 to 50 million metric tons in 2024. These and other key findings were released in a new study by RISI, the leading information provider for the global forest products industry.

"It's a really exciting time to be looking at the wood pellet market. We're seeing strong demand in the European heating sector as high energy prices drive consumers to look for fuel alternatives. Also, policies that promote the generation of renewable energy are spurring the use of pellets as a substitution for coal in power plants," said Seth Walker, author and bioenergy economist at RISI.
"Additionally, Korea and Japan are beginning to enter the market, creating a greater impact on global trade flows. Right now we're getting a small taste of what the market is going to look like in 10 years," continued Walker.

Global Pellet Demand Outlook Study analyzes and forecasts growing wood pellet markets through 2024 by region. This study focuses on the European industrial market, European heating market, North American heating market, and Asian industrial market.
Global Pellet Demand Outlook Study provides forecasts for:
- European Industrial Markets—Including Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom
- European Heating Markets—Including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden
- Asian Industrial Markets—Korea and Japan
- North American Markets—The United States and Canada
Industrial users analyzed in this study include: Dong Energy, Drax, E.ON, GDF Suez, KEPCO subsidiaries, Ontario Power Generation, RWE, and Showa Shell

Carbon Positive, Carbon Carbon Neutral or Negative?

Greenhouse gases from burning fossilfuels have caused the Earth's temperature to rise. Increasing the temperature of the earth or global warming causing numerous disasters due to climate change in a number of places on earth. When greenhouse gases not controlled then the result of damage to the environment of the earth will be more severe. Therefore, efforts were made to reduce greenhouse gases as the cause of environmental problems. In general, there are four common scenarios to prevent the global warming effect of CO2 in the atmosphere gradually, namely: 1.increasing the efficiency so the fossil fuel consumption decreases, 2.mix of renewable fuels with fossil fuels so that fossil fuel consumption has also decreased, 3.substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels 4.and the absorption of CO2 in the atmosphere so that the concentration of greenhouse gases can be reduced. Here are some basic terms related to the above problems. Based on the origin and the effect that CO2 in the atmo…

10 Advantages By Making Energy Plantations for Wood Pellet Production

Assuredness of supply of raw materials is one of the key factors of business success in the wood pellets. There are two ways to obtain raw materials commonly done today: a. Buying from the owner of source of raw materials. b. Producing its own the availability of raw materials. While the 3rd way and there is still few for business owners make wood pellets is by mix way, which is partly provide by their own of raw materials and some rest buy from the other source of raw materials.
While examining at the types of biomass raw materials there are two kinds, namely : a. Woody biomass b. Non-wood biomass such as agricultural wastes (empty fruit bunches of palm oil trees, corn cobs, rice husks and so on). Currently woody biomass remains a priority to be products of wood pellets as a number of advantages over non-wood biomass which is generally an agricultural wastes, are included in the category of biomass pellets or agri-waste pellets. The comparison between wood pellet and biomass pellet …
