By Biomass North Development Centre

May 22, 2015 - Nipissing University’s Biomass Innovation Centre would like to sincerely thank you for your ongoing support throughout its six successful years of operations. We regret to inform you that Nipissing University has made the difficult decision to shelve the work of the BIC, while they focus on their current restructuring efforts and new strategic direction.

Now for the good news!

The former BIC team and mission to support Northern Ontario’s bioeconomy will continue through our new group – the Biomass North Development Centre.

Biomass North will continue to take on the role of developing a robust and sustainable bioeconomy in Northern Ontario, firstly by implementing the Northern Ontario Bioeconomy Strategy (NO-BS).  The NO-BS will build a skills and training plan for the province, drive regulatory and policy reform, and create sustainable supply chains, bioenergy and biofuel projects, biocomposites and biochemical innovation, and support northern food security.

Biomass North will also be launching as an industry association to reflect the needs of small-to-medium sized enterprises in the sector, will provide consulting services for sector leaders, will host industry tours and events, and continue to be the “go-to” destination for the latest developments in the Ontario bioeconomy.


Stay in touch for further updates and thank you for your patience during this transition period.
