Implementation of agreed CO2 reduction policies in Europe and the adoption of similar measures in Japan and South Korea are driving the demand for energy wood pellets.

Power generation using energy wood pellets is a more efficient option than generation using combustion of raw biomass and the low cost of conversion for coal generators makes pellets highly cost effective, easily transportable and a secure energy source.

Using energy wood pellets has an immediate impact on reducing emissions of carbon when used in combination with other fossil fuels to co-fire power generation plants. Energy wood pellets are an important heating fuel source with an energy value approximating bituminous coal.
