Industry Data

PFI’s partnerships with industry members allow for an exchange of information between the groups. In addition, PFI members working at the committee-level have also produced important information for the densified biomass fuel industry.

Below are links to a number of studies and surveys that may be of interest. If you know of additional studies, surveys, or data that should be linked here, or have any questions, please contact PFI at pfimail@pelletheat.org
