To be held in Tokyo on 15-18 May, the 8th edition of renowned Biomass Pellets
Trade & Power summit promises latest updates on North Asia's biomass
capacities, raw material imports, feedstock price trends and stiff competition
between wood chips/pellet sellers from SE Asia, Europe and North America.
Japan and South Korea's strong buying demand for wood pellets to feed its
existing and new biomass power capacities coming on-stream have led to increase
in spot wood pellet prices(

for a share of these markets. Aptly, the Tokyo summit calls on Japan's key
biomass producers--IPP eRex, that is expected to purchase 300,000 tons of palm
shells and biofuel this year, to discuss its expectations on biomass
requirements and Sumitomo Corporation, that has an upcoming 50MW biomass plant,
to share about Japan's demand and imports of wood pellets, wood chips and PKS.
Addressing South Korea's biomass power market is Hanyang Corporation while
opportunities in mainland China and Taiwan are provided by China Renewable
Energy Industry Association and Indufor.
Stakeholders from the biomass sellers' side at the summit are--PKS trader Asia
Resource Partners, Thailand's BioPellets, Canada's wood pellet
producer/distributor Pinnacle Renewable Energy, USA's Enviva, Baltics' Graanul
Invest as well as Australia's Altus Renewables--with many of them expected to
join a 'Global Wood Pellet Producers Panel' discussing top wood pellet
2016 and insights into pellet pricing. Even more interesting are discussions on
'sustainable pellet supplies to Asian markets' as well as pellet pricing
competition between North America, Russia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia and
Thailand. Other speakers at the summit are IHI Corporation, Hawkins Wright,
Malaysia Biomass Industries Confederation, Ata Marie Group, Fuji Biomass
Energy, US Industrial Pellet Association(USIPA), Voyage Power Fuji Keizai and
This 2017 summit features two pre-conference workshops -- 'Experience in Large
Scale Co-Firing & with Various Biomass Types' and 'From Residues to
Plantations: Changes in Biomass Supply & Sourcing to Meet the North Asian
Organized by Centre for Management Technology(CMT), the 8th Biomass Pellets
