The exchange of worldwide bioenergy commodities, akin to ethanol, biodiesel and wooden pellets has been becoming exponentially long ago decade, and feature by means of 2013 reached actual “commodity” volumes, i.e. hundreds of thousands of tonnes traded every year, and billions (both in US$/€) of annual turnover.

IEA Bioenergy activity forty used to be based in 2004 and is now in its 4th triennium. For the prior nine years, activity forty has monitored the advancements in overseas bioenergy alternate, together with the association of approximately 20 workshops on trade-related themes, and the e-book of over a hundred experiences, kingdom reviews, newsletters, and so on. the quantity of fabric produced through the years and insights won in how biomass markets and overseas exchange of biomass and biofuels has built is outstanding. along with that the crowd has produced overviews and insights, additionally a large number of functional adventure has been introduced jointly in what works and what doesn’t. final yet now not least, in keeping with all this, there are clear(er) perspectives on tips to continue to construct operating sustainable overseas biomass markets sooner or later.
