Bioenergy for heat and power is growing quickly in Canada. So what is the next step in the development of a Canadian bioeconomy? Biomass to lucrative bio-chemicals!

Workshop: Biomass to Biofuels and Bio-chemicals
Holiday Inn and Conference Centre, Sarnia ON, May 1, 2013

As we move deeper into the 21st century, the need to manufacture transportation fuels, chemicals and pharmaceuticals with renewable biomass is becoming increasingly apparent.

To convey this message and to bring together biomass and chemical industry stakeholders to discuss renewable options in the new bioeconomy, the Canadian Bioenergy Association, in partnership with the Sustainable Chemistry Alliance, will be holding a workshop to discuss various pathways from forest and agricultural biomass to advanced biofuels, bio-chemicals, and bio-products. 

At this workshop, we will:
  • Provide an overview of the availability of forest and agricultural biomass;
  • Discuss current biofuel and bio-chemical developments in Canada, with an emphasis on the Sarnia-Lambton Biohybrid Chemistry Cluster;
  • Showcase current Canadian bioeconomy projects and technologies;
  • Highlight overseas developments in bio-refining and bio-chemicals;
  • and more!
