BIC helps establish Hybrid Chemistry Cluster for biochemicals and biofuels

September 24, 2017 |

In Canada, a focus on building hybrid chemistry clusters and biorefineries to maximize the value of biomass is a goal of groups like the Bioindustrial Innovation Canada. BIC helped Sarnia-Lambton establish a new Hybrid Chemistry Cluster which is to become a hub for the biochemicals and biofuels industries.

A.J. (Sandy) Marshall, BIC’s executive director, told Canadian Biomass magazine, “BIC is now assessing the potential to generate renewable natural gas and bioenergy from the biomass residuals which will enhance the region’s competitiveness. Maximizing the production of biomaterials (such as wood products, cellulose, fibre, and lignin), biochemical, and biofuels will maximize the value extraction from the biomass. Production of bioenergy is important to the bioeconomy as it allows industry to extract value from the residual products remaining.”
