Argus Biomass Asia 2018 Banner

There is a good reason for the intense interest in Asian biomass markets.

Significant demand increases in Japan and South Korea offer interesting opportunities for a range of stakeholders across the wood pellet and oil palm biomass supply chains in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. But the push for renewables initiatives in southeast Asia, increasing domestic demand and often challenging inland logistics are likely to result in considerable price increases, particularly for palm kernel shell (PKS).

This tug-of-war for Asian biomass supplies will be the core focus for the 2018 conference, as we move to provide further coverage in PKS and the region’s biomass power generation projects.
