The Biomass North Development Centre in partnership with the University of Guelph are leading a series of workshops focused on building effective and cost-feasible value chains for biofuel and bioproduct development in northern communities. With an emphasis on remote and rural communities and supply chains, the purpose is to discuss the current opportunities, challenges and regional benefits to biomass-based energy solutions.
