B.C. Wood Pelletes Positioned in Europe

Funded by FII, the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) continues to position B.C. prominently in Europe. WPAC and FII (representing the Canadian Council of Forest Minister’s Forest in Mind Program), supported by embassy staff in The Hague, met with the Dutch government, energy companies, ENGOs and other stakeholders in the Netherlands to ensure that the draft Dutch biomass sustainability criteria would allow Canadian wood pellets to access the Dutch marketplace.
