This is a follow up to our previous communication that CellMark’s Asian Energy group participated in the first Argus Asian Biomass conference ever. CellMark signed up as a silver sponsor and Craig Jackson gave a presentation on the Supply Chain Management aspects of the pellet business in Asia. The conference took place in Singapore late June with attendees from across all interested parties in the Biomass sector in Asia. The main focus of the conference was the Korea Market for Biomass and the emerging market in Japan. Presenters included Japanese traders, Korean consumers and suppliers from Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam.
The main take away from the conference was that the growth in Korea will resume and grow to around 5 million tons per annum by 2020 with an emphasis on the higher quality, which are very encouraging news for future biomass business in this area. Just as encouraging was the presentations on Japan where the current majority of Biomass is PKS, locally sourced wood from deconstruction and wood chips. The presentations forecast Japan quickly going to 5 million tons of Biomass and possible over 10 million tons by 2030 with increased percentage coming from wood pellets .
In conclusion, the consumption of Biomass is growing in Asia and CellMark see now that our efforts are timely, that we are well prepared for and in a position to be a major business partner surpassing expectations in the Biomass trade.

CellMark is impresed by the great initiatve taken by PaperSeed Foundation to set up a Recycled Materials Art Competition with elementary school students in Marin County, California, USA earlier this year. Looking back at PaperSeed’s first Annual Recycled Materials Art Competition it was a huge success. The range of inspired projects was astounding, from twisting paper branches to surrealist portraits made of cardboard; robots made of old tin to colorful sculptures. And we understand the judges had an incredibly difficult time choosing winners.
The Recycled Materials Art Competition wrapped up on May 26th with an awards reception honoring the winning student artists and their teachers at CellMark’s office buidling in San Rafael. All were impressed with the beautiful entries and level of skill exhibited by all participants. In this post we showcases some of the amazing work created during the competition.

CellMark would like to thank PaperSeed for this great initiative. We also extend our thanks to Marin Sanitary Service and Mill Valley Disposal for their generous sponsorship of the 2016 competition.
