The Market Analysis
This market analysis describes the possibilities for the development of a biomass commodities exchange. A biomass commodities exchange should support and reinforce the international trade in biomass and strengthen the position of the Port of Rotterdam as the biomass main port for North West Europe. In this report biomass includes solid and liquid biomass and biofuels for energy purposes. Solid biomass is mostly used as primary energy source for heat and electricity production, either in dedicated biomass facilities and household stoves or by co-firing in coal power plants. This includes e.g. wood pellets and wood chips. Liquid biomass, like vegetable oils from rapeseed or soy bean, is primarily used as raw material for the production of biofuels that are a substitute for fossil transport fuels.
The market analysis is developed under the authority of Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) to support a decision on the development of a biomass commodities exchange and to optimize the position of Rotterdam. This public version of the market analysis includes the following chapters:  Analysis of present biomass supply and demand and future volumes and liquidity of biomass
trade flows (Chapter 3);
 Inventory of views and positions of relevant market parties (Chapter 4);  Assessment of other relevant developments (Chapter 5).
Chapter 2 presents the main findings and conclusions.
Collaboration between Port of Rotterdam and APX-ENDEX
With the development of this market analysis contacts were made with APX-ENDEX, a Dutch energy derivatives exchange. APX-ENDEX has the expertise to develop and execute exchange trading platforms and offers clearing and settlement services, while Port of Rotterdam is specialized in the physical handling and throughput of biomass. These complementary skills have been confirmed in a Letter of Intent between Port of Rotterdam Authority and APX-ENDEX to collaborate on the development of a biomass exchange with physical delivery in Rotterdam. Under the Letter of Intent a business case is developed based on the present market analysis and an analysis of the trading platform possibilities by APX-ENDEX. These products will identify the critical elements for a plan of action to prepare for the start of a biomass commodities exchange.

abstract
The development of biomass based industries face many challenges. Technological and environmental questions are paramount. However, the organization of developing biomass based industries could be a key non-technical barrier. Given that industrial organization is not the focus of many research agendas, this article attempts to fill the void.
Biomass sources could be a low cost feedstock for energy production such as cellulosic ethanol. This potential low cost hinges on effective and efficient methods of exchange. One way to address the need to understand the organization of future biomass based industries is to examine current related industries such as the United States biopower industry. This article first examines the broad industrial structure of the current biopower industry by briefly discussing inputs, technology, function and production trends. Then the discussion is narrowed to focus on the type of organizational form used to procure or transfer ownership of biomass materials in the current U.S. biopower industry. Based on survey evidence the current biopower industry is found to be highly vertically integrated with little use of spot markets. This result is found to be consistent across the type of biomass fuel used.

27 New Biomass to Energy Projects to Be Presented at the International Biomass Conference & Expo

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/27-new-biomass-to-energy-projects-to-be-presented-at-the-international-biomass-conference-expo-2013-03-13

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Mar 13, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Detailed information about 27 new biomass facilities recently completed or currently under construction will be presented by Biomass Magazine at the International Biomass Conference & Expo to be held in Minneapolis April 8-10.

The Biomass Construction Update is designed to illuminate the prominent biogas, pellet, biomass power and advanced biofuels plants actively under construction in North America. The presentation at the conference will offer relevant information on each project and highlight their recent accomplishments.

“We are very excited about the large number of new projects that are being built this year,” says Tim Portz, Vice President of Content & Executive Editor at BBI International, the company that produces Biomass Magazine. “The International Biomass Conference & Expo is the perfect place to showcase the detailed information we have gathered about these projects.”

Information on completed bioenergy plants built by Himark bioGas and Buena Vista Power will be presented. The Himark project, completed in December, is already supplying biogas to Western Plains Energy for use as process heat. Buena Vista reconfigured a coal plant to operate on biomass, and that project became fully operational in December.

One of the most significant projects to be discussed is the American Renewables-owned Gainesville Renewable Energy Center power plant in Gainesville, Fla. The 100-megawatt facility is one of two facilities of its size in the United States and is the largest contributor to the biomass power sector’s strong growth with an anticipated 523 MW of capacity scheduled to come online by the end of this year.

Among pellet plants to be included in the presentation are Enviva and German Pellets, which are nearing completion on three, 500,000-metric-ton per-year plants that will add significant export capacity, with Europe being the likely final destination.

The biofuels industry waits in anticipation of the completion of a commercial scale cellulosic ethanol facility and this milestone is within a year of being realized. INEOS and Abengoa are on schedule to start producing in the first half of this year, adding 33 million gallons per year of cellulosic ethanol capacity, effectively quintupling cellulosic capacity in the U.S.

“Anyone who is working in or looking to work in the biomass industry should attend this year’s biomass event to learn more about these fully commercialized projects,” Portz says.

Factbox: Biomass energy, carbon and forestry – biggest providers and users reporting


Factbox: Biomass energy, carbon and forestry

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/08/us-eu-wood-factbox-idUSBRE8770JG20120808

Wed Aug 8, 2012 7:29am EDT
(Reuters) – Forest and farmland together cover more than three quarters of EU territory, but their role in capturing and releasing carbon emissions is not fully documented.

The following outlines the situation so far.

WHAT IS BIOMASS?

Biomass-based fuel is the oldest source of consumer energy known to mankind and the largest source of EU renewable energy.

It comprises renewable organic matter, such as wood, agricultural crops and agricultural and municipal waste. The most commonly used form is wood pellets, which include pellets for residential and industrial use, and are relatively easy to transport.

In the first instance, pellets are made of by-products, such as saw dust and shavings, but as demand outstrips supply, nations have had to seek other sources of woody feedstock.

Woody biomass pellets have the potential to become a tradeable commodity, like other forms of fuel, but so far they carry large risks, are not transparent and standards vary.

As a step towards global biomass trading, Dutch-based energy exchange APX-ENDEX in November last year launched the first biomass exchange.

Utilities are keen for standardization.

Denmark’s Dong Energy “calls for the urgent development of common European sustainability criteria, which cover the origin, production and consumption of solid biomass for energy,” a spokesman said.

For now, Dong mainly imports wood pellets from other EU countries, but anticipates importing from outside the EU as demand rises.

EUROPE IS THE BIGGEST USER

The demand for biomass pellets in Europe has increased rapidly, accelerated by the agreement of a 2020 target to raise the share of renewables in the energy mix to 20 percent.

Biomass is expected to account for about half of the renewables share and has the benefit of helping to provide reliable baseload power. Wind and solar, in contrast, are intermittent.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has predicted the European Union is likely to remain the largest wood pellet consumer in the world.

It said EU demand could range between 20 million and 50 million tons by 2020, depending on factors such as the price of heating oil and national policies on co-fired power generation.

East Asia is also expected to show very strong growth and may be “a close second” in 2020, the IEA said.

BIGGEST PROVIDERS

Rising demand in the European Union has stimulated large investments in new pellet plants and increased production in nations including Canada, Russia and the United States.

Russia, already a fossil fuel energy giant, has the largest forest area. It constitutes around 20 percent of the world’s forest resources.

Within the EU, the Polish pellets market only began in 2003, the IEA said, but its rate of growth is rapid.

Production has been mostly exported, but domestic production is rising as woody biomass replaces some of Poland’s predominant coal-fired generation.

NEED FOR IMPORTS?

Between 2008 and 2010 the production of wood pellets in EU increased by 20.5 percent, reaching 9.2 million tons in 2010 – or 61 percent of global production – figures from IEA Bioenergy showed.

In the same period, EU wood pellet consumption increased by 43.5 percent to reach over 11.4 million tons in 2010, equal to nearly 85 percent of the global wood pellet demand.

The European pellet industry still covered 81 percent of the EU demand in 2010, but the gap between production and consumption in EU has been growing rapidly.

IMPACT ON FORESTS

Since the 1990s, the forest area in Europe has been increasing steadily.

However, environmentalists say that is a short-term view and are worried biomass for energy could wipe out swathes of the world’s forests. Where forests survive, they warn old trees are replaced with saplings, which have less value as a carbon store, and the variety of planting is not maintained.

“Compared to the over-cut we have done for centuries … the balance is still that we take out wood quicker than the carbon is replenished,” said Jutta Kill, carbon trading and climate change campaigner at non-governmental organization FERN.

BALTPOOL ENERGY EXCHANGE- BIOMASS


BALTPOOL
“Baltpool” acts as Lithuanian electricity financial market administrator and as Lithuanian gas market operator.

http://www.baltpool.lt/en

“Baltpool” is established in order to foster the creation of harmonized common Baltic electricity market integrated with the Nordic market and further – with Central and Eastern European markets as defined in the Baltic Energy Market Interconnection Plan (bemip). Meanwhile these topics are going well and “Baltpool” expands its activities and concentrates on the development of local energy market. We have started it by launching the Lithuanian gas exchange and financial market for electricity.

On December 28, 2009 the National Control Commission for Prices and Energy granted “Baltpool” a licence to pursue the activity of electricity market operator in the Republic of Lithuania from January 1, 2010. On Novemeber 23rd, 2011 company got a licence to act as the gas Exchange operator. The gas market was launched on 1st March, 2012.
On June 18, 2012 the power exchange operator of Nordic countries Nord Pool Spot AS started administration of Lithuanian power exchange. After “Baltpool” had stopped the administration of Lithuanian power exchange, the exchange for electricity derivatives was introduced to market participants as the alternative for the long-term contract registration. In the exchange for electricity derivatives participants trade forward – transactions are made day ahead for the each hour of upcoming days.
The registered participants of Nord Pool Spot Lithuanian price zone, which aim to hedge against price variation in electricity exchange Lithuanian price zone, participate in the exchange for electricity derivatives, administrated by “Baltpool”.
Wholesale trading of natural gas administered by “Baltpool” takes place on the commodities exchange by trading natural gas or transfer of right of acquisition of natural gas. Trade on the natural gas exchange is local for the time being – there are no international participants in the market at the moment. Trade of both natural gas and transfer rights on the exchange is carried out through standardized products which can be traded for various periods: day, week, month, quarter or year.

With respect to Biomass…..

First transaction in the biomass exchange

The outcome of first auction in the biomass exchange held today was first transaction. The total value of orders placed at the exchange amounted to LTL 150,000. The amount of the transaction concluded is 12 tonne of oil equivalent (toe). The price of the transaction is LTL 690/toe.

“As of 1 October, we have already concluded contracts with six biomass exchange members: UAB “Baltwood”, UAB “Fortum ekošiluma”, UAB “Durpeta”, UAB GECO investicijos, UAB “Timbex”. We are in process of signing agreements with couple of new participants,” said Laura Žalaitė, CEO of the energy resources exchange Baltpool.

http://www.baltpool.lt/en/actual-info-view/first-transaction-in-the-biomass-exchange

A licence to organise trading in biomass in the exchange was issued to UAB Baltpool on 27th of September.

The biomass exchange has been presently trading in wood chips. Orders are issued at the exchange from Monday to Thursday. Transactions are concluded every Thursday. Trading in the biomass exchange is organised in eight Lithuanian regions: Vilnius, Kaunas, Utena, Alytus, Šiauliai, Panevėžys, Rietavas and the Port of Klaipėda. Heat and electricity producers as well as biomass manufacturers may trade in the exchange, regardless of their size.
