BioEnergy 2014: Pathways to Bio-Prosperity

Join us in Prince George, Canada for the 6th International Bioenergy Conference and Exhibition. Over the three days of the conference, held at the centre of one of the largest biomass fibre baskets in the world, there will be many opportunities to learn more about the industry in British Columbia as well as the latest global trends in technology, project development, policies and regulations.

The theme of this year’s conference is Pathways to Bio-Prosperity. In keeping with that theme, we will be taking a look at all the various pathways by which biomass finds its way to market — as energy, as fuel, gas and additional bioproducts. We’ll also be hearing about some of the latest technologies revolutionizing this industry, as well as important discussions about the sustainability of the industry and the policy and economic environments driving its future.
