The European Industry of Pellet Suppliers (EIPS) is an umbrella organisation of AEBIOM founded in 2012, aiming at representing the interests of European companies focused on the wood pellet business. EIPS was created by the joint forces of the European industry of pellet producers, traders and other stakeholders involved in the supply chain in order to represent their interests in Brussels. Currently, EIPS represents 8 companies.
