Here are just some of the exciting business, information sharing and networking opportunities that await at the Canadian Bioeconomy Conference:
- Keynote Presentations – Our three keynote presenters each bring their own take on the issues and opportunities in the bioeconomy. Anna Tenje, Mayor of the Greenest City in Europe, Växjö, Sweden, delivers a powerful message about how economic opportunity and renewable energy can go hand in hand. Renowned researcher Dr. Werner Kurz speaks to the diverse pathways to sustainability using wood-based biomass feedstocks. And British Columbia’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, Hon. George Heyman, discusses opportunities in the bioeconomy and how they align with the provincial government’s climate commitments.
- Plenary Panels– Beginning with a wide-ranging discussion of the bioeconomy by a panel of association executives, the conference plenary sessions will take delegates through a range of topics, from an overview of the global outlook, to the role of government in promotion and regulation of the bioeconomy and the climate opportunities and implications of the sector. The Canadian wood pellet sector will include a panel of experts in the industry before we move into more granular discussions about value-added bioproducts and local opportunities for biomass deployment.
- Pre-Conference Workshops – Two important workshops will kick off the program. The Wood Products Safety Summitis open to anyone involved in processing and operations across all wood products sectors and will look at some of the critical issues operators must address today. The Community Energy Workshopwill appeal to local community leaders, energy managers and organizations working with them on developing local solutions to the future energy needs of their communities.
- Networking and Business Development – A full set of business and social events take place around the conference program, including two networking receptions, full meals throughout the conference, and a post-conference tour to Pinnacle Renewable Energy’s Meadowbank pellet facility.
