The Biomass North Development Centre in partnership with the University of Guelph led a series of workshops focused on building effective and cost-feasible value chains for biofuel and bioproduct development in northern communities. With an emphasis on remote and rural communities and supply chains, the purpose was to discuss the current opportunities, challenges and regional benefits to biomass-based energy solutions.
This workshop series was supported by BioFuelNet, and was organized in partnership by the Biomass North Development Centre and University of Guelph, in collaboration with RediCan BioFuels and REMASCO.
