Biomass Canada – Fuelling the Canadian Bioeconomy
Low-cost Sorghum Biomass
If you’ve offered farmers a low-cost, high production crop, they may respond with a simple question: What’s the catch?
Biomass Canada need your help
A group of graduate students involved in Biomass Canada prepared a survey for farmers, biomass related industries and businesses, researcher, policy maker and/or legislator. Find the link to the appropriate survey here!
Food For Thought
Converting Biomass to High Value Feedstock Offers Food for Thought. Find out more about the project focused on “Development of Logistics, Pretreatment and Commercialization of Agri-pellets”, led by UBC’s Dr. Shahab Sokhansanj.
Project Promotes Pellet Production
While “dense” may not be a quality coveted by humans, it has distinct advantages when it comes to biomass. Identifying and achieving those benefits were critical goals of the project “Application of thermo-chemical and hydrothermal pretreatments in the production of fuel pellets using agricultural wastes”.
High Hopes for Low Input Biologicals
The study aims to develop biological inputs for Canadian crop production, including microbial strains and biostimulants such as flavonoids, and isolate novel plant-growth-promoting microbes from Canadian crop and uncultivated plants.
From Waste to Wealth
The three major challenges in the 21st century are ensuring food security, adapting to and mitigating climate change, and finding alternate and sustainable sources of energy.
High Hopes for High Energy Production
Spinning straw into gold may be a fairy tale but converting Canadian agricultural biomass into high energy products and biochar is an attainable goal.
Science on a mission to cut emissions
If you don’t think emissions from fossil fuels are harmful to Earth, you must be living on Mars.
Science aims to stop wasting waste
Greenhouse waste holds value, as Drs. Xu and Yuan demonstrate in this piece.
