Wood pellets in the forest

Nationwide wood pellet supply

For more than 15 years, DS Group has been involved in the field of renewable energy

Besides our competences in the fields of wind and sun energy (project planning), we have implemented and supported various projects in the field of biomass/wood pellets.

Since 2004, we have been trading with wood pellets within our company group as a supplier and partner of the specialised trade (B2B) – neutrally and independently. Since 2015, pellets are part of the portfolio of DS-Mineralöl GmbH. We thus offer the complete product range, from mineral oil to pellets.

To ensure a sustainable supply of goods for trade, we have established a nationwide network of our own warehouses and external capacities. In this way, we are closing gaps between production and end-customer trading for nationwide availability of wood pellets. This results in important synergies, both for the producer and storage service provider (capacity utilization), as well as for the specialized trade and for the end consumer (supply security).

As a reliable partner of the specialist fuel trade, we attach great importance to individual consultation with individual contact persons – in order to offer customers optimal supply!

Price models

Hedging mechanisms for fair and transparent pricing

DS-Mineralöl oil pricing models
  • Spot price
  • Fixed price (maximum 12 months)
  • Index price (DEPV)

We also offer numerous pricing options for wood pellets and find individual solutions for each customer. A very popular variant is for example our fixed-price business. At our own storage locations, we can offer fixed monthly prices over a period of up to one year if required. Alternatively, customers can choose the classic day-to-day business based on a spot price. Another variant in our portfolio is pricing based on the DEPV index.
