Development and promotion of a transparent European Pellets MarketMarket

Duration: 2007 – 2009 ● Client: European Commission (IEE) ● WIP Role: Coordination, Market uptake, Communication and Dissemination ●

The general aim of the pellets@las project is to promote the development of a transparent and stable European pellet market. Therefore, the main action of the pellets@las is the collection and provision of pellet market data such as prices and production volumes.

For data collection in EU27+2, specific questionnaires were elaborated and sent quarterly to producers, traders and large consumers of wood pellets and mixed biomass pellets (MBP). In addition, existing data was used, wherever available.

In order to provide easy access to the produced results, all information is disseminated via the project website with public databases including all collected data as well as a comprehensive contact list of involved market actors.

In order to provide background information to raw data, several analytical reports were produced, including country reports, analyses of international pellet trade developments and updates on recent relevant developments such as the ongoing European standardisation of solid biomass.

Furthermore, the stakeholders´ need for information and advice was addressed by providing hotline services and information was transferred to less developed pellet markets by organising several workshops. The wider public was provided with general information on pellet usage by translating an existing pellet handbook to several European languages.
