Last week, at the invitation of the member company Renewi, the meeting of the European Working Group of the BAV-Bundesverband der Altholzaufbereiter und -verwerter e.V. took place in Amsterdam.
The event focused on the European waste wood markets, their changes and challenges. The goal of the meeting is networking, knowledge transfer and a better understanding of the markets in neighbouring European countries.
Presentations and market reports from Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and Germany highlighted the developments in the individual countries. Above all, Germany, the largest market for waste wood in Europe, is facing major challenges with a view to the end of the promotion period for waste wood power plants.
The next meeting of the working group is scheduled for spring 2019.
