EU imports of fuel wood totaled $1.8 billion in 2023. The two main categories of fuel wood imported by the EU are wood pellets and wood chips. This report focuses on the bioenergy market for wood chips in Northwestern Europe, which is increasingly seeking to import from outside the EU. North America is regarded as a natural region to source woody biomass from. Currently imports of wood chips from the United States are restricted for phytosanitary reasons. According to EU regulations, pine wood chips need to be heat treated and fumigated.
