One of the most impressive aspects of the pellet industry is the passion that so many producers have for market development. Pellet producers understand the vital importance building a market for their product, customer by customer.
The notion of U.S. forests being clear-cut exclusively for wood pellets is demonstrably false. What is true is that demand for wood pellets is growing, and this is creating new jobs in forestry, manufacturing and shipping.
The domestic pellet industry needs to emulate other U.S. or Canadian businesses: we are going to have to promote our product.
It is imperative the U.S. identify experts to participate in the development of ISO pellet safety standards. If not, they will be developed by the predominant interests of other countries.
