Similar to the German market the consumption of wood pellets in Luxemburg is limited to residential heating. Customers use automated pellet appliances for central heating purposes so that pellets are mainly delivered in bulk by blower lorries. The trade with bagged pellets is of minor importance.
With around 10 kg of wood pellets consumed per capita and year, the development of the market is also comparable to Germany. The total annual consumption in Luxemburg is around 5,000 tons.
However, on the other hand, no domestic pellet producer was identified. This means that all pellets consumed are imported. Around 50 % of the pellets consumed are imported by traders based in Luxemburg, while the other 50 % are directly delivered to the end-consumers by traders / producers operating in Germany or Belgium.
