Task 33

A joint Workshop between IEA Bioenergy Task 33 and IEA Fluid Bed Combustion will take place on October 24th 2017 in Denmark.
Links to the preliminary program document and registration form can be found here.

Task 40

IEA bioenergy Task 40 have updated the 2011 report Global Wood Pellet Industry Market Report  with new insights on market trends and trade of the global wood pellets. The global wood pellet market has increased dramatically since 2011. New countries have entered the market for both, pellet production (such as those from South-East Europe) and pellet consumption (such as East Asia).

Joint Task Outputs

IEA Bioenergy Tasks 38 & 43 have collaborated on two reports.

Albedo Effects of Biomass Production: A Review presents an overview of the drivers of albedo, reviews measured albedo changes linked to vegetation changes or to bioenergy production systems, and reports on studies that have calculated the relative contribution of change in albedo to the overall radiative forcing of bioenergy projects.
