Greece is one of the less developed pellet markets in Europe. The total production during 2008 was below 30,000 tons, while the installed production capacity was 87,000 tons. The first production plant started in 2006 and several producers started pellet production in the meantime. Two more companies are planning to start pellet production in 2009.
However, there is currently no significant residential pellet heating market and only a marginal use of industrial pellets so that Greek producers are trying to export the largest share of their product, Italy being the most important import country.
