February 2013 Newsletter: 6th International Woodfibre Resources & Trade Conference

We are pleased to bring to you our February 2013 Newsletter.  The Conference program is complete and we are sure you will find it exciting, interesting and a ‘must attend' event.

Included in the attached newsletter is:

1.     North American Wood Pellet Exports Hit New Record Volume in 2012.
Exports of wood pellets from both Canada and the USA hit new all-time record volumes in 2012, up 40% from 2011. Although there are still some problems with reporting statistics, we estimate that in 2012 Canada exported nearly 1.4 million tonnes of wood pellets and the USA exported over 1.9 million tonnes. The vast majority of Canadian exports are from British Columbia to Europe, although a small volume of about 100,000 tonnes was exported to Japan. Exports from the USA are from a number of large producers in the US South, including Georgia Biomass (RWE), Green Circle Bioenergy, FRAM and Enviva.

The most striking announcement came in mid-December when Drax, a UK power company, stated its intention to build two 450,000 tonnes pellet plants, one in the state of Louisiana and one in Mississippi. Most other export oriented pellet plants, while invested in by European utilities, are separate US-based entities, with supply agreements and MOU's defining the business relationship.

2.     Register before Friday 1 March 2013 and SAVE US$325 on the registration fee.  The fee will increase from US$1685 to US$2010 on 2 March 2013.

3.      Pöyry Management Consulting will organise a pre-conference seminar on April 8..........

4.     Updates on the Gallipoli Tour, the Pre Conference Field Trip to the Yildiz Entegre MDF Factory, the Post Conference Field Trip to the Regions Timberland Group popular plantations in Western Hungary, the Partner Tours and the Social Events.
