Is Thailand the Next Major Biomass Feedstock Market? Answers & more at 2nd Biomass Pellets Trade Asia in Seoul, Korea

April 12, 2011

According to an article in Biomass Magazine, Thailand stands out as a top market for global biomass producers to expand in, thanks to government policy which encourages further power production from biomass.

Recognizing Thailand’s potential, China-based solutions provider DP CleanTech has opened an office in Bangkok, after successful development of many biomass power plants in China, and more in the works. “DP CleanTech has identified Thailand to be the next major market in its rapid rollout of biomass power systems in Southeast Asia,” the company’s website says.

Viaspace is working with about five companies in Thailand that are interested in growing and using its trademark biomass feedstock, Giant King Grass, as a cheaper alternative to pricier materials available there now.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural event which attracted over 120 participants, the Biomass Pellets Trade Asia marks its return on 07-08 September 2011, this time in Seoul, Korea. Among the program highlights will be expert comparisons on the availability & competitiveness of wood pellets versus alternative sources of biomass feedstock (Palm Kernel Shells (PKS), Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB), Rice Husk, Miscanthus, Sugar Bagasse, plus many more.

The agenda is currently being finalized & will be available shortly. To request for more information or to pre-register your interest now, send an email to Ms. Hafizah at Otherwise, click here to submit enquiries on speaking and/or sponsorship opportunities.
