Sustainable Biomass Markets and International Trade to support the biobased economy

Welcome to the new website of Task 40, IEA Bioenergy. We recently moved our contents from http://www.bioenergytrade.org to this page which is under the management of IEA Bioenergy organisation.

IEA Bioenergy Task 40: Sustainable International Bioenergy Trade, commonly abbreviated Task 40, was established under the International Energy Agency (IEA) Bioenergy Implementing Agreement in December 2003 with the aim of focusing on international bioenergy technology potential, barriers, and trade as well as its wider implications.

Global Wood Pellet Industry and Trade Study 2017

Download | The report Global Wood Pellet Industry Market published in 2011 has always been the most downloaded document of IEA Bioenergy Task 40. We have decided to update the report and bring new insights on market trends and trade of the global wood pellets.

The global wood pellet market has increased dramatically since 2011, with an average increase
rate of 14% per year. New countries have entered the market for both, pellet production (such as those from South-East Europe) and pellet consumption (such as East Asia). Also the global wood pellet trade increased. Intercontinental flows are dominated by the trade relation between the U.S. and the UK, while the non-industrial use is still mainly an intra-European business.

International Workshop: Future perspectives of bioenergy development in Asia

IEA Bioenergy has organized a workshop in cooperation with NEDO / METI with support from the REI in Japan on potential technical and organizational improvements to biomass supply chains, including pre-treatment technologies, bio-refineries, logistics/trade, final conversion/end-use and overarching topics such as sustainability assurance frameworks and policy support options. This workshop on the one hand provides such technical information to Asian member countries, but also information on the activities of IEA Bioenergy to support the decision making process for membership. The target group for the workshop therefore consists of industrial stakeholders as well as policy makers, academics and local biomass associations.
