Canada: Increase in pellet production expected

Canadian pellet production is expected to rise by 6% to around 3.3 million tones for the current year.

In accordance with the GAIN Report “Canada Biofuels Annual 2019” of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the energetic development which began 2018 would continue, but in a weakened form; in 2018 production estimated for the pellet industry of Canada had grown up by almost 13 % in comparison with 2017.

After a rather slow rise in Canadian pellet production in the years 2013 to 2017, higher growth rates are possible again in the next few years as a result of various investments.
