2nd Biomass Trade & Power Europe Draws Fresh Panelists & Key Insights for Copenhagen Return in February 2017

Biomass buyers and sellers convene at Centre for Management Technology's 2nd Biomass Trade & Power Europe in Copenhagen on 13-14 February to deliberate on demand and supply dynamics of biomass pellets and chips in Scandinavia amidst Europe’s overcapacities and price drops.

In light of SBP certifications, oversupply and bearish pricing trends in Europe's biomass market, a Global Biomass Producer Panel sets out to assess if producers can continue to operate at current price levels. Representatives from Enviva, Pinnacle Renewable Energy and Wood Pellet Services aim to address SBP and its challenges, spot market vs. long term contracting, as well as concerns of small producers. Also under the spotlight at the summit is the Role of Russia in the European Industrial & Heating Markets by CM Biomass Partners.

With Scandinavia being the brightest spot in Europe's biomass market, among key presentations is a paper on - ‘Insights on Fortum's Stockholm Facility' - the world's largest wood chip consuming plant. Fortum's biomass consumption, types of feedtsocks used as well as the reasons why Fortum decided to consume wood chips over wood pellets are some of the highlights of the session. More on the Scandinavian market will be examined in a session on Scandinavian District Heating Demand by Ekman & Co. Plus, a panel discussion on Sustainability Issues and Challenges in the Dutch Biomass Market led by Uniper, Engie, RWE and Vattenfall. A Site Visit to Hofor's Amagerværket Power Plant on 13 February completes the focus on the Scandinavian market.
