Pellet demand remains strong in Europe

FII expanded its support for development of markets for wood pellets in Europe in 2012/13 and the industry has made good progress. Estimates show the market for wood pellets growing at 15 per cent per year in Europe demonstrating solid long-term potential for the industry. By addressing concerns regarding “wood miles” (a reference to the energy required to transport pellets for fuel to distant markets), and engaging at senior levels in the EU regarding potential threats to B.C. market access, the industry has been able to capitalize on Europe’s growing demand for green energy.
