Netherlands: Dutch Wood Pellet Imports Surge to a New Record in 2019

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In 2019, the Netherlands doubled its wood pellet imports to a new record of 1.22 million metric tons (MMT). Imports are forecast to double again this year based on Dutch power companies’ co-firing plans. The majority of Dutch pellets were sourced from the Baltic States, followed by Russia and the United States as the leading non-European suppliers. The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management has requested two Dutch government agencies investigate the long-term role of biomass for the circular economy and whether or not it is necessary to implement a new sustainability framework for biomass.
