The regional lockdown and social distancing measures imposed by South-East Asian countries has slowed down production and logistics of wood pellets and palm kernel shells (PKS), and resulting in a supply gap. As restrictions eases in some weeks’ time, will the production and supply return to the normal output levels?
In this #CMTBiomass webinar, we have invited 5 key suppliers from Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia to join us on this panel discussion on the regional SEA biomass supply chain and outlook from the demand markets in Japan and South Korea, dealing with production disruption arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
