Find a Wholesale Wood Pellet Price Per Ton

Anyone who has a pellet burner knows the joys and benefits that such an appliance can bring to your home. They are low maintenance, can be set to come on with a timer (a huge plus when it’s your primary source of heating) and are generally, pretty cheap to run. Last year, many were reporting using only one bag of pellets a day, even on the coldest days of the year. With one of the stand out features of pellet burners being their cost effectiveness to run, it has hit users particularly hard that the price of pellets has gone soaring through the roof this year.

Pellet price in Europe

Last year, when buying a pallet or pellets of A1 quality, you could expect to pay anywhere from 3-5€ per 15kg bag. This year however, you would be lucky to find a supplier selling for anything less that 8€ – Some suppliers are even charging as much as 13€+!

How much does 1 ton of wood pellets cost?

The price of pellets began to rise rapidly since May of 2021. The price of pellets is subject to the availability of the raw materials used to manufacture them, the abundance of stock and the buying patterns of the consumer. The initial increase in prices was due to the sharp rise in the sale of pellet burners and boilers in domestic homes, thanks to substantial aid offered by the government and MaPrimeRenov in an effort to increase the energy efficiency of our homes. It is estimated than an additional 300,000 tonnes of pellets have been consumed because of this.
