US pellet production up 17% year-on-year

08.07.2019 − 


US pellet production in the first quarter totalled 2.149m tonnes, around 17% more than in the same period of the previous year. Due to the further expansion of production capacity, US pellet production has thus exceeded the 2.1m ton mark for the third consecutive quarter since mid-2018.


According to the figures of the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) at the U.S. Department of Energy, the decisive factor for the high increase was an increase in the production of industrial pellets, which was increased by around 20 % to 1.716m tonnes. The production of higher quality pellets for the heating market increased by 6.5 % to 432,912 t.
