In September, the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) was made aware that a filing had been initiated in South Korea by wood pellet sector competitors in the solar sector targeting Canadian wood pellet exporters. WPAC viewed this action as an attempt to restrict the market share for Canadian wood pellets in South Korea by unfairly calling into question our strong sustainability credentials.

WPAC is pleased that the South Korean court has dismissed the claim in its entirety and determined it lacked legal relevancy.

At WPAC, we are proud of our sustainability performance and our global contributions to a low carbon economy. More information on our commitments and our performance can be found at

South Korea is home to many valued WPAC member customers, and our membership looks forward to continuing to serve and grow with our South Korean partners.
