Production of solid biofuel is the most developed among all 4 groups. There are more than 200 manufacturers of solid granules (pellets) and briquettes from different raw materials (wood chips / sawdust, straw, sunflower husks and rice hulls) in Ukraine today. But domestic consumption of the product is actually absent because of expensive solid fuel boilers. On the other hand external demand is very high, even higher than the theoretical volume of Ukrainian production of solid biofuels. More than 95% of the pellets and briquettes are shipped to the EU.
