COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to Northwest US woodfiber assessments - Consultation
BEDFORD, MA, Apr. 17, 2019 (Fastmarkets RISI) – In keeping with changes in how woodfiber and biomass are traded in the US Northwest, Fastmarkets RISI is proposing the following changes to its price assessment coverage.
- Units of measure in price reporting changed from bone dry units (BDU) to bone dry tons (BTD).
- Separate prices shall be reported for residual mill chips and whole log chips.
- Northwest prices will be reported as one whole geographic region, rather than three small sub-regions.
The changes would potentially take effect from July, 1,2019.
Please send comments and queries to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15, 2019, indicating “Northwest US woodfiber” in the subject line of the email.
