Established in April 2008 with a $25 million grant from the BC
government, the BC Bioenergy Network is an industry-led initiative that
acts as a catalyst for deploying near-term bioenergy technologies and
organizing mission-driven research for the development and demonstration
of new bioenergy technologies that are environmentally sustainable for
the province of BC.
BC is well positioned to become a major player in the global bioenergy
sector. The province is steward to one of the largest forested areas in the
world and a leader in biomass to value-added wood products. The BC
Bioenergy Network will provide the leadership to make BC a world
leader in developing and marketing wood-to-bioenergy and other
bioenergy technologies.
