Leader in Canada’s bioeconomy

The Canadian Bioeconomy Conference and Exhibition was based in Prince George, British Columbia. The city is home to a large and diverse bioeconomy sector that includes forest management and silviculture, research and development, government administration, and manufacturing of products such as lumber, panels, pulp, and wood pellets. In fact, the region has a long history as a leader in Canada’s bioeconomy in Canada, including the country’s largest pulp and paper cogeneration sector, the first and largest wood pellet-producing industry, and multiple district energy systems that have virtually eliminated greenhouse gas emissions from the buildings they heat.

The Board

The Canadian Bioeconomy Conference and Exhibition was presented by a non-profit society led by a volunteer Board of individuals with a passion for the bioeconomy.
