North America Wood Pellets Export to Europe
Most people know that Europe consists of a lot of countries. They may also know that wood pellet machineand wood pellet plant are widely applied in these European countries. Do they know whether wood pellets produced by wood pellet machine in the domestic market can meet their huge demands? In fact, although nearly all European countries have established large-scale and small-scale wood pellet plants to produce wood pellets as renewable fuel, there is still a lack of wood pellets since their demand is so large. Then do people have a realization that it is North American countries, U.S. and Canada that export wood pellets to European countries and help relieve the shortage of wood pellets in Europe?
It is known that European countries have a continuous large demand of wood pellets for many years. Only in 2010, excessive 1.6 million tons of wood pellets produced by wood pellet manufacturers in U.S. and Canada were shipped to European countries, mainly to Netherlands, UK and Belgium. According to a recent report, U.S. and Canada have been the major overseas countries that play an important role in supplying wood pellets through wood pellet machine to European countries. Though Canada is the main wood pellets supplier reaching 1 million tons just in 2010, an increase of wood pellets export from U.S. from 85,000 tons in 2008 to 600,000 tons in 2010 is more appealing and significant. From current prospective, U.S. wood pellet manufacturers will occupy an increasingly important position in the future.
With the EU commitment to produce 20% of total energy from wood pellets, wood pellet machine and wood pellet plant will still be extremely essential in Europe. What's more, coupled with the increasing prices of oil and coal throughout the world, wood pellets consumption in European countries will keep rising in the following years. It is predicted that wood pellets export from North America to Europe will double in the coming few years.
