The Opportunity Of Holland Wood Pellets Market
- May 23, 2018 -

The Dutch government has submitted a report to the U.S. department of agriculture's global agricultural information network, which Outlines the current opportunities in the market for wood pellets.

It is reported that the Dutch government subsidized biomass to burn together.Funds and forest owners must demonstrate that they are connected to complex sustainability standards, although they provide some flexibility for small-scale landowners.One of the best opportunities, the report says, is wood pellets made from wood chips.

The report explains that the Dutch energy agreement was implemented in 2013, with 14 per cent of sustainable energy generation targets achieved by 2020 and 16 per cent by 2023.The upper limit of biomass mixed fuel each year is 3.5 million tons of wood pellets.According to the agreement, biomass meets sustainability requirements, including forest level certification, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions information, carbon debt and indirect land use changes.

Authors report said: "from the United States exports to the Netherlands southeast of the main obstacle is the lack of wood particle on small landowners reward, to prove that their land has been used in the production of wood pellets."

For forest management units with an area of more than 500 hectares (1235.53 acres), forest level certificates are required and will be progressively extended to small forest management units over the next four years.As of 2022, the report notes that all forest management units need forest certification.However, there are other options that allow small-scale landowners to be eligible for biomass subsidies in the Netherlands to burn raw materials together.

These options include collective certification, which allows certification schemes such as sustainable biomass schemes.

The second option allows controlled wood to be used as a substitute for certified wood.The report explains that controlled timber comes from a sustainable source and the minimum risk is an unacceptable gain.The validation of a granulation plant through certification or regional risk assessment can prove its conformance.The controlled timber option allows energy producers to deliver 30 percent of their biomass energy each year, the report said.

The third option is to use the residue from the sawmill.The report explains that the remnants of sawmills need only to meet requirements related to greenhouse gas calculations and regulatory chains.Dutch buyers have reportedly purchased residu-based particles from Europe recently.However, these supplies are limited and the us could be an alternative source.

Fourth, the Dutch government allows the selection of verification verification as an alternative to certification.The report explains the verification compliance with the import market for biomass.Similar to certification, large forest management units need to conduct verification at the forest level and gradually check with smaller units.
