What is the Atlantic Biorefinery Conference?
The Atlantic Biorefinery Conference is a dynamic 3-day conference that sparks discussion and projects that transform our renewable natural resources into business opportunities. These opportunities are part of a vision for a sustainable future and circular economy where Canada's biomass is used to its full potential. Responsible resource management practices, new innovative technologies, and research and development in our traditional industries are essential elements of this vision. This is the biobased economy.
Biorefining is the platform of the new economy
Biorefining is a means to a sustainable future where we transform our natural resources into high value products like energy, medicines, bioplastics, and biofuels. Our natural resources are a valuable asset that should be leveraged sustainably and responsibly, and used in ways that yield the most positive impact for our society.
Atlantic Canada is positioned to be a leader in innovations for the bioeconomy, with dozens of private and public research institutions and hundreds of companies already innovating in the biosciences. Our vast forests, affordable agriculture land, and diversified coastal zones make this region an ideal playground for piloting and scaling up globally disruptive biorefining technologies.
The 2017 Atlantic Biorefinery Conference will showcase the best projects on-the-go from inside and outside the Atlantic Canada region. Delegates can take advantage of a multitiude of networking opportunities and hands-on technology demonstrations and tours. Explore the program and presentations from the 2016 Atlantic Biorefinery Conference to get an idea of what to expect in 2017.
Join us in Fredericton, New Brunswick June 7th - 9th at the Hugh John Flemming Forestry Centre.
