ICE Endex Wood Pellets Data Products
A survey among exchange members and active players in the bio-energy markets has indicated a strong demand for standardized market price information for several bio-energy products facilitated by an independent and secure platform. In close co-operation with market players active in these markets, ICE Endex is eager to contribute to the further development of the bio-energy market by providing bio-energy price indices.
In 2008, ICE Endex launched the Industrial Wood Pellets price index in response to the market’s need for price transparency. There has been increased interest in the trade of biomass contracts and, as standardised exchange-traded contracts did not exist, ICE Endex saw this as an opportunity to respond to the requirements of the market. ICE Endex and Port of Rotterdam announced their cooperation in July 2010. A joint feasibility study to investigate the possibilities of establishing a biomass exchange was finalised in November 2010.
On 3 November 2011, the world’s first Biomass exchange was launched by listing industrial wood pellet products, including 3 month, 3 quarter and 3 calendar contracts.
The development of the biomass exchange follows a two-phased approach. In phase one, the exchange started with non-cleared products, meaning the physical settlement is arranged bilaterally between the counterparties after the trade has been concluded. Phase two will include the development and implementation of clearing services for wood pellets contracts, thereby providing further financial security to market participants. In this phase, Port of Rotterdam will contribute its expertise with regards to shipping, storage and distribution of biomass products.
All Wood Pellet contracts traded on the exchange are certified with either the Green Gold Label certification scheme, the Laborelec-SGS Solid Biomass Sustainability Scheme or the Drax Biomass Sustainability Implementation Process in order to ensure sustainability.
