The 28 European Union member states produced nearly 17 million metric tons of wood pellets last year and consumed nearly 27 million metric tons.
Europe consumed 27 million metric tons, including 26.1 million metric tons consumed by EU28, which was up 8 percent from 2017.
The sustained growth of this market, 4% between 2018 and 2017, exemplifies why pellets are leading the way in this ever-evolving market. Pellet used for heat production is a highly modern and effective solution. With its very high efficiency in combination with its release of extremely low emissions, this is a fuel that brings great benefits; proving itself as an effective renewable energy to aid in the transition for a cleaner Europe.
