European and Asian countries continue to set targets for renewable energy, and realizing that biomass will play a key role, they look to Canada as a major biomass supplier. Yet as Canada ramps up its biomass production for export, our domestic bioenergy industry is growing exponentially, initially in community heat, bio-power, and biofuels, and soon in drop-in transportation fuels, cellulosic ethanol, bio-chemicals and bio-pharmaceuticals.

This national event will take place November 27-28 in Vancouver, at the Sheraton Wall Centre. It will be an opportunity to network with key industry, non-profit, and public sector stakeholders from North America, Europe and Asia. Conference presentations and panel discussions will cover:

– exponential growth in our domestic bio-economy, shown in the CanBio 2012 data study;

– what’s hot in the bio-economy;

– opportunities for extracting high value products from biomass;

– overseas markets, with a focus on pan-Pacific bio-trade;

– strategies for accessing capital and financing;

– the status of biomass heat and power.

There will also be a post-conference tour on November 29 of the world’s first gasification heat and power installation by Nexterra at the University of British Columbia, continuing to B.C.’s largest pellet terminal, Fibreco, in North Vancouver.
