A formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between BIC and
LSQ calls for collaboration on such priority areas as chemicals from sugars,
lignin based materials and composites. The MOU, effective June 22, 2014,
extends for a three-year period.

 

“We are situated in two western jurisdictions with the
ability to grow and develop vast quantities of biomass,” said Mario Pennisi
Chief Executive Officer of LSQ. “It makes strategic and economic sense that LSQ
and BIC work together to leverage the know-how, interest and innovations of the
respective stakeholder groups for mutual benefits and outcomes with global impact.”

 

BIC and LSQ agree to work together to exchange information
and establish business relations between their networks and members. They will
promote the human capital agenda and develop research, development and
demonstration projects for technologies that convert sustainable feedstock into
energy and value-added chemicals and materials.
