EXPORT TREND OF WOOD PELLETS – CUSTOMS AND METHOD OF PACKAGING

Nowadays, the exhaustion of fossil fuel and environmental issues impacting human’s health are the main concerns . Therefore, the sources of clean, environmentally friendly energy such as solar energy, wind energy and recently the biomass energy of wood pellets are gaining in popularity.

 

 

Wood pellet is a biofuel manufactured from agricultural and forestry by-products such as sawdust, wood chips, rice husks … which are screened, dried and pressed with high temperature and pressure. Wood pellet has enormous energy value, which is entirely suitable for replacing energy causing many environmental issues.

It is expected that the demand for wood pellets in the world will increase more than ever in the coming time. For instance, in the United Kingdom and European countries, it comes from the government’s policy of limiting carbon emissions to the environment. Besides, economists predict that its consumption in Japan and South Korea will increase sharply since 2021.
