Pellet Continental Europe – The spot industrial pellet market has been tightening and the prices continued to move up also in September, nearing the prices in early 2016. Drax’ unit #1 will be down until early November, while other units have been taking downtime in September. Demand is expected to increase also as two new large units, namely RWE’s Amer in the Netherlands and EPH’s Lynemouth in the UK, are both to come online in November after some delay.

In Central Europe, autumn has started well in terms of pellet sales, supported by the previous cold winter and increased volumes of pellet boiler installations.

Also in the small and medium scale sector, September was a good month in pellet trade. The PIX Pellet Continental index for the medium-scale use showed an increase by 56 cents, or by 0.28%, closing at 201.89 EUR/ton. This is down by 0.4% from the beginning of this year.
