October 21, 2014, Stockholm, Sweden – The World Bioenergy
Association has released its newest fact sheet: Pellets – a fast growing energy
carrier. The pellet fact sheet is the sixth in a series of documents intended for
media and industry as verifiable, easily referenced source of information.

 

The fact sheet provides an overview of pellets, their
properties, production of pellets in large and small-scale technologies, pellet
equipment including boilers and stoves, and the economics of pellets.

The WBA believes that pellets have the potential to become a
fuel with a significant importance in the global energy balance. The
availability of wood as raw material is substantial and could be further
extended by the establishment of plantations of fast growing trees. Also, the
possibility of using agricultural by-products offers a vast amount of
resources.

 

“Pellets are a well packaged bioenergy carrier – they have
high energy content, standardized properties and are easy to transport long
distances. The use of sustainably produced pellets to replace fossil fuels is
environmentally and economically attractive. There has been a tremendous growth
in pellet production and use in the past decade and they will play a vital role
in climate change mitigation and energy security,” says Dr. Heinz Kopetz,
President, WBA.
