Baltic Peat Producers’ Forum (BPPF) is one of the most important peat industry events in Europe. It is organized annually in different locations at the end of the production season respectively by Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian Peat Producers Associations. BPPF has been held annually since 2001 and attracts hundreds of international attendees. The forum was founded in March 2000 at the joint board meeting of Baltic peat producers associations where upcoming challenges and tasks were discussed. It was decided that this kind of meeting should be held annually in order to exchange information regarding technology and yearly production rates. The first BPPF was held in Lithuania in one of the production companies in 2001.
What started as an annual meeting between three associations has nowadays grown into international forum that gathers more than 300 delegates from more than 15 countries and holds a key place amongst the peat industry events in Europe. Bringing together peat industry representatives, as well as decision makers, traders, equipment manufacturers, environmentalists, representatives from peat serving industries and researchers who share their experience and knowledge on peat and peatland related issues.
The main aim of the forum is to present the latest achievements and perspectives in peat industry in order to share experience as well as to address issues regarding legal frameworks, nature conservation and other issues regarding scientific research on peatlands.
