  • bioenergy organizations,
  • institutions,
  • companies,
  • individuals
Since its foundation in 2008, WBA has been working to address a number of pressing issues including certification, sustainability criteria, bioenergy promotion, and the debates about bioenergy ́s impact on food, land- use and water supply.

Promote the increasing utilization of bioenergy globally in an efficient and sustainable way and to support the business environment for the bioenergy companies.

The European Biomass Association (AEBIOM) is the common voice of the bioenergy sector with the aim to develop a sustainable bioenergy market based on fair business conditions. AEBIOM is a non-profit Brussels based international organisation founded in 1990 that brings together around 30 national associations and 90 companies from across Europe thus representing more than 4000 indirect members including mainly companies and research centers.

European Pellet Council 
The European Pellet Council (EPC) is an umbrella organisation of the European Biomass Association (AEBIOM) founded in 2010, representing the interests of the European wood pellet sector. Its members are national pellet associations or related organisations from 16 countries. EPC represents the interests of the sector in Brussels and communicates the contributions the European pellet sector can make to increase the use of renewable energy in Europe.   

IBTC 200px 
The International Biomass Torrefaction Council (IBTC) is an umbrella organisation of AEBIOM launched in 2012.

IBTC’s objective is: to promote the use of torrefied biomass as an energy carrier and to assist the development of the torrefaction industry. In this respects, IBTC key activities are to undertake studies or projects, and to commonly voice its members’ concerns to third parties to help to overcome barriers of market deployment. IBTC takes part in initiatives and projects dedicated to biomass torrefaction market development such as: collection of statistical data, standardization issues, certification of and permissions for the product, communication initiatives, matters related to health and safety.

 REA 170 logo

REA was established in 2001 as a not-for-profit trade association, representing British renewable energy producers and promoting the use of renewable energy in the UK. REA helps our members build commercially and environmentally sustainable businesses whilst increasing the contribution of renewable energy to the UK’s electricity, heat, transport and green gas needs.

The U.S. Industrial Pellet Association (USIPA) is a not for profit trade organization that promotes safety and sustainability practices within the US industrial-grade pellet industry, as well as the growth of the overall bioenergy market. USIPA was founded in February 2011 by several industry leaders, including Enviva, Fram Renewable Fuels, ecoFUELS, Georgia Biomass, and the Westervelt Company

 Wood Heat Association 220

The Wood Heat Association (WHA) was founded in 2013 to fully engage the wood heating sector at a regional and local level. The WHA extends the objectives of the REA beyond policy development to standards and quality with strong local engagement. We are the UK trade association for the modern wood heating industry and we are working towards full integration into the REA to become the largest wood and biomass heating trade association with over 240 member companies. 

WPAC 170 logo
The Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) is a member-driven organization advancing the interests of Canadian wood pellet producers. Our goal is to help members grow through promoting the role of wood pellets in the Canadian and global markets, supporting market and technical research, and encouraging fair and open energy trade. Membership is open to Canadian pellet producers, as well as suppliers and partners (associate membership).

AIEL has represented the wood-to-energy supply chain in Italy since 2001 and is organised according to sector. On the biomass side, AIEL is comprised of two main streams, with the first representing producers, particularly timber companies that process wood biomass such as firewood, wood chips, agro-pellets and agro-briquettes, and the second covering producers and traders of ENplus pellets.

The groups promote the development of the industry and encourage members to share professional growth opportunities with each other. AIEL aims to help its members meet market demand and keep up with legislative changes. It also acts to co-ordinate initiatives within the agricultural sector, with the intention of increasing biomass production. Activities are shared with the different sector divisions under AIEL, particularly Biomass Boilers Manufacturers and the Group of Domestic Appliances, in order to co-ordinate activities across the entire market.
