The German Engineering Federation (VDMA) and Koelnmesse are jointly organising the first International Pellet Forum Cologne, a one-day international congress that will be held on 25th October 2006, parallel with Entsorga-Enteco 2006 — International Trade Fair for Waste Management and Environmental Technology (24th to 27th October) in Cologne. The aim of the congress is to emphasise the importance and development of wood pellets on the energy market. The production and use of wood pellets will also be addressed.

The congress is intended for producers, the various trade channels, and commercial and industrial users. The International Pellet Forum Cologne comprises four topic areas: the importance of wood pellets on the energy market, international markets in the trade, industrial pellet production and commercial and industrial pellet use. Each area will feature presentations by expert speakers from Germany and abroad.

“The market for wood pellets has tremendous potential for growth,” explains Dr. Markus Heering, Deputy Chairman of the Thermo Process and Waste Treatment Technology Association of the VDMA. “Compared to the costs of heating oil and natural gas, the price of pellets in Germany represents a 50 per cent saving. What’s more, the price has remained nearly unchanged or even decreased slightly. We are delighted that we have succeeded in creating the first International Pellet Forum Cologne, which is a unique platform for this market of the future.”

The entire congress programme is available on the Internet at www.entsorga-enteco.de. International Pellet Forum Cologne participants can also use their congress admission tickets to visit the Entsorga-Enteco 2006 fair for one day.
