In Europe the consumption of pellets has passed from 4 to 14 million tons in the last 10 years. In this same period, the consumption of domestic pellets in Spain has increased from the almost 100.000 annual tons to the 573.000 consumed in 2018. And the forecasts point to will exceed one million of tons in 2022.

Spanish producers guarantee the supply and increase manufacturing together. The productive capacity of Spain far exceeds the 593.000 tons manufactured last year, which were sufficient to supply the national market. The failures in the supply with some distributors little forecasters were covered by others without major problem.

La ENplus certification of the pellet has consolidated as quality reference among consumers worldwide. Currently, 39 Spanish manufacturers have the certificate in force and work daily to maintain the required parameters, while increasing the levels of control and inspection in order to guarantee quality.


 
The use of wood pellets as a source of thermal energy is being imposed as the most sustainable measure in economic, social and environmental terms to combat climate change. Its use encourages rural development, creates jobs and, being profitable, contributes to a sustainable, fair future with our society and the environment.
Bioenergy Barbero, energy services company and sole distributor based in Salamanca of ENplus® pellet, has recently expanded its biomass collection capacity with the installation of two fully automatic pellet silos. 
Expected to close the Andorra thermal power plant in June of 2020, Forestalia proposes the construction of a new pellet plant in the same municipality. With an expected capacity of 200.000 tons per year, thus becoming the largest in Spain. This plant would create 60 direct jobs and more than indirect 350 including the collection and logistics of biomass. Forestalia currently has two such plants, located in Erla and Huerta de Rey.
Manufacturers of pellets, olive bone, shells, ....
CIMEP will discuss the raw material, the situation of the national and international market and the evolution of the pellet-consuming facilities, topics that will be addressed by experts of international reference. 
Mobile Pellet Plant, a pellet manufacturing plant. The pelletizadora is manufactured in a container of about 40 feet, ready to work. This pellet plant can be transported, which allows to relocate the production of pellets and change their location depending on where the raw material is.
Biomass in normalized pellet format made with olive bone. More economical and can be used on the same equipment as the wood pellet.
Biomass combustion tests in the form of pine chips in a pilot combustion plant of 500 kWt grills at CEDER-CIEMAT. The emission of particles is clearly influenced by the quality of the chips.
Biomass in wood pellet format 100% natural that lacks additives and vegetable fats.
The only "but" to the good performance of the pellet market, analyzed at the World Sustainable Energy Days conference, has been the stock tensions that, although it has not suffered any breakage, has been somewhat fair this season.
In general, the markets have transmitted good feelings, very different from the concerns that marked the World Sustainable Energy Days meetings two and three years ago.
During the 4th meeting of the European Federation of Olive Oil and Olive Biomass, the concern in the sector was highlighted in how to improve the circular economy of the olive grove sector, as well as the high productions and with difficult exit of the main biomass of the olive grove: the orujillo.
