Export and import of Latvia
In 2019, peat was exported for 185 million euros.
Extensive insight into the use of peat in the world and in Europe can be gained by getting acquainted with I. Krieger's presentation at the IPS International Symposium on Peat for Food Production and Quality of Life, held in September 2019 in Qingdao, China: Peat in Latvia, Europe and the World.
The Central Statistical Bureau includes data on peat exports and imports for both raw peat and peat products, including peat substrates. The exported products may have different humidity. The amount of extracted peat is calculated by converting to a relative humidity of 40%.
