A Canadian delegation of innovators in the biomass market will search out new export partners during a trip to Sweden this April.
Biomass North Development Centre, based in North Bay, will lead the envoy, which will first attend the World Bio Markets forum in Amsterdam, April 1-3. This year’s conference is focused on the theme Commercializing the Bio-Based Value Chain.
The delegation will continue on to Stockholm, Sweden, to participate in business-to-business meetings with potential export partners on April 4, followed by a day of site tours on April 5.
“We are eager to bring Canadian innovation to the global market,” said Dawn Lambe, executive director of Biomass North Development Centre, in a March 18 news release.
“Our renowned forestry and mature agricultural sectors are pushing the envelope on product innovation, creating new bioproducts for a sustainable world.”
“For a country with such vast forest and agricultural resources, widespread sector expertise, and a growing demand for new economic opportunities, we’re happy to see such interest from Canadian companies looking to embrace the emerging bioeconomy,” added Francis Gallo, project director with Biomass North Development Centre.
