What is the future of European pallet market?
In November of 2021 the Bioenergy Europe organization has released the new Pallets report that has shown the situation of European pellet market. AXIS Tech’s Director of Commerce was invited to review the Pallets report and share his opinion.
“Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has become a challenge for all production sectors across the world, Bioenergy Europe’s statistical Pellet report shows that, fortunately, the pellet production did not experience a major downturn and has increased globally. One of the main reasons for this success was the automatization of the pellet production process that allowed most of the production to continue despite the COVID measures. Furthermore, we are currently facing a deficiency in raw materials in most industries, but the high level of pellet stock allowed the industry players not to experience any supply shortage, although this had an impact on prices.
The breakdown of energy sources by fuel type in the HVAC sector, to be found in the present report, helps to identify which European pellet markets are the most favorable for pellet systems. Indeed, the countries where the households mostly rely on coal and heating oil are offering the best potential for the sales of pellet units. Even if we see positive signs of renewable energy expansion, the whole world has to do better to ensure the future of humanity. Indeed, all around the globe, we must improve the energy efficiency of all processes along with air quality improvement and greenhouse gas reduction. To support this transition, some support programs are available on national and European levels. To further transition, the private sector should also take its part of social responsibility and further encourage the phasing out of fossil fuel and embrace biomass.
The AXIS Tech team is pleased to be able to offer to the market what it needs the most in these difficult times. We see growing customer interest in AXIS Tech technologies that can provide solutions such as biomass equipment for the combustion of various fuels and carbon-neutral energy production and conveyor systems that allow automation of various production and transportation processes. By caring about our partners’ success and the future of the environment, we can help them solve problems that may arise during their journey towards the world of clean energy.
