There will be a lot happening in the woodfibre trade industry between our last conference and late 2014, with major changes expected in:

  • The Asian woodchip markets and in Pacific Rim suppliers,
  • Increased competition for woodfibre in Europe,
  • Huge surge in US South and Canada East Coast woodpellet production,
  • Several exciting new developments in Asian biomass markets
  • Many other interesting and commercially relevant subject

We are developing a program of topics and speakers for the conference. Suscribe to our newsletter and keep updated!


November 5 - 7 2014


Unfortunately we have no more places available.
If you wish, you can make a pre-registration, only to be part of a waiting list and in case we receive any cancelation request we will let you know.
Thank you for your understanding.

The event will be followed by a field trip to the Concepcion area, about one hour by plane from Santiago. The region is very rich in visit opportunities, including:

  • Arauco’s Nueva Aldea Industralia Complex: Log merchandizing line, sawmill, plywood mill and pulp mill
  • CMPC’s nursery, plantations of radiata pine, Eucalyptus globulus and Eucalyptus nitens and harvesting and field chipping operations
  • Volterra’s woodchip plant (Operated by Fulghum, and including production of biomass fiber)
  • Portuaria Cabo Froward’s woodchip loading terminal

We are planning a very busy, varied and productive three day field trip.


As at past events, we are planning a program of first-rate speakers to provide an informed outlook on current and expected demand for woodchip and biomass imports in the various markets, as well as available supply of woodchips and biomass from around the world.
