PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-003723-18 Wood pellet exports to northern Europe. Many coal power stations, for example, Drax power station in the north of England, are converting to biomass.
As a result of the conversions, intense pressure has been put on the wood pellet market, as vast volumes of pellets are being exported from southern European countries (such as Portugal) to northern ones, particularly the UK. Under that process, power stations receive CO2 reduction certificates. However, studies have been published which call into question the CO2 reduction certification system for biomass which has travelled more than 40 km to a power station. Thus, the carbon footprint of the pellets travelling from southern to northern Europe may be worse than the footprint generated by burning coal.
What is more, that practice could result in forests in southern Europe becoming even barer, contributing to the desertification of the interior regions, which are already severely socially and economically depressed.

WPAC Annual Conference–Harrison Hot Springs, BC 20/09/16 Présentation : The global outlook for wood pellet markets. FAO 12/11/14 Montenegro wood energy sector holds promise. Montenegro is now in a strong position to harness the potential of its vast forests and bolster its fledgling wood energy sector, thanks in part to an innovative report released by FAO.
The WISDOM for Montenegro report – short for Woodfuel Integrated Supply and Demand Overview Mapping for Montenegro – provides essential statistical and geographic data on forestry resources and the local wood energy market. Montenegro has one of the highest levels of forest cover in all of Europe, blanketing 59.9 percent of its land. But the country is not yet fully capitalizing on this valuable natural resource for its national energy network.
According to the report, modest infrastructure and outdated policies limit the production and consumption of all types of wood fuel, from split wood to grapevine briquettes to wood pellets. In other words, Montenegro is forfeiting the economic and environmental benefits of wood energy. But developing a wood energy industry is not an easy task for any government. BLACKSEAGRAIN 09/05/14 Finland increases wood pellet production. BIOMASS MAGAZINE 08/09/11 Pellet export conference focuses on important contract terms. Pellet producers who have not gotten into export markets may not realize the multitude of factors they’ll need to specify in sales and shipping contracts.
Roderick W. Simmons of law firm Hirschler Fleischer was at the North American Biomass Pellet Export Conference in New Orleans Sept. 8- 9 to address aspects of contracts that producers will need to be aware of to begin shipping overseas. To begin, Simmons introduced the International Commercial Terms, or Incoterms, which define the roles and responsibilities of buyers and sellers, including the division of costs such as insurance. The two most common sets of Incoterms Simmons said he’s encountered are Free On Board (FOB) and Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF).
Under an FOB contract, sellers are responsible for getting the pellets to the ship, the subsequent responsibilities of the transaction falling upon the buyers’ shoulders. ECOWATCH 04/09/13 U.S. Becomes Largest Wood Pellet Exporter, Clearcutting Forests and Destroying Wetlands. Natural Resources Defense Council By Debbie Hammel When you think about burning wood to heat your home, you might imagine a cozy fireplace, not a giant power plant.
Unfortunately, utility companies in Europe are making massive investments to convert their power plants to burn wood—known as “biomass”—as a replacement for coal and other fossil fuels. This is despite the fact that recent research shows that burning whole trees in power plants actually increases carbon emissions relative to fossil fuels for many decades—anywhere from 35 to 100 years or more. It also emits higher levels of multiple air pollutants. The result of this new demand has been the explosive growth of wood pellet exports from North America, most of which originate in our Southern forests here in the U.S., putting into peril some of the most valuable ecosystems in the world.

Energy Information Administration, based on U.S. International Trade Commission data Wood pellet exports from the United States nearly doubled last year, from 1.6 million short tons (approximately 22 trillion Btu) in 2012 to 3.2 million short tons in 2013. More than 98% of these exports were delivered to Europe, and 99% originated from ports in the southeastern and lower Mid-Atlantic regions of the country.

FAO 18/12/13 Ralentissement de la production de bois en Europe et forte reprise en Amérique du Nord. Granulés de bois utilisés comme combustible renouvelable dans les chaudières en Corée du Sud 18 décembre 2013, Rome - La part de l'Europe dans le marché mondial du bois a fléchi en 2012 à cause de la récession économique qu'a connue la région, tandis que l'Amérique du Nord et l'Asie-Pacifique ont affiché la plus forte reprise au cours de la même période, selon les nouvelles données publiées par la FAO aujourd'hui.
Le ralentissement du redressement économique de l'Europe, y compris en Fédération de Russie, en 2012 a entraîné un recul de la production de bois de 1 à 4 pour cent par rapport à l'année précédente pour la plupart des produits. Ces tendances s'expliquent par la stagnation, voire la récession économique dans certains pays d'Europe occidentale et méridionale en 2012. D'où le fléchissement de la demande de produits forestiers et la baisse de 1 à 2 pour cent en moyenne de la part de l'Europe sur les marchés mondiaux, en fonction des produits.
