Jon Strimling, PelletSales.Com President, to Address InterPellets 2008, Stuttgart, Germany on Wood Pellets Becoming Hottest Alternative Fuel in United States
Jon Strimling, President of PelletSales.com and its parent American Biomass (http://www.pelletsales.com), will represent the United States at InterPellets 2008, the 8th Pellets Industry Forum to be held in the International Congress Centre Stuttgart (ICS) of the New Trade Fair Centre Stuttgart, Germany, October 28-29.
The market for wood pellets is currently experiencing strong international growth. For investors, producers and service providers, this opens up a wide range of opportunities, but also challenges. “Currently the situation in the international pellets markets is very dynamic, new technologies are in demand worldwide, making high quality market information important for investment decisions,” reports Barbara Pilz, Project Manager for the 8th Pellets Industry Forum.
Mr. Strimling added, “Wood pellets are a great way for American consumers to save money, while also helping to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Depending on where you are in the country, pellets currently cost in the range of $250-330/ton, delivered to a residence, which is equivalent to buying heating oil at $2.10-2.80/gallon. Pellet users can dramatically reduce their heating costs for years to come by changing to biomass fuels right now. Staying with oil or gas is simply sending money up the chimney,” he said.
Though America invented the wood pellet, Germany has rapidly adopted wood pellet heating solutions. In Germany, bulk delivery trucks provide convenient delivery to residences, much in the way that an oil company would deliver oil. PelletSales.com is the leading provider of wood pellets to residences in the U.S. and is in the process of rolling out similar bulk distribution technology throughout its service area, spanning Baltimore to Maine on the East Coast and selected areas of the Midwest and West.

About InterPellets 2008
Approximately 500 experts and decision makers from industry, research and politics are expected to attend the 8th Pellets Industry Forum. The conference, which last year had a total of 451 expert participants from 33 countries, will be simultaneously translated from German into English. The international InterPellets 2008 trade fair will take place in parallel to the Industry Forum — also at New Trade Fair Centre Stuttgart.
The conference will also focus on current trends in pellet technology, such as optimization of standards and exemplary production technologies for pellets, as well as reports on marketing concepts from the European markets. Compact country reports will, among other things, present the emerging wood pellets markets in France, Great Britain and the USA. The development of pellets production in countries with large forested areas and the challenges emerging for international trade will also be discussed, with the leading export market of Canada and the dynamic developments in Russia being highlighted.
