February 26, 2016 - It can take Mother Nature 1,000 years to grow a forest. But Nikolay Strigul, assistant professor of mathematics and statistics at Washington State University Vancouver, can grow one on a computer in three weeks.
February 19, 2016 - The 2015 State of Canada’s Forests report is now available from Natural Resources Canada (as a PDF download).
February 9, 2016 - Mettler Toledo has published a new guide entitled, “Essential Measurement Techniques.” The guide will ensure lab personnel have a basic understanding of the techniques they use so they can more easily spot potential error sources in lab measurement protocols. Enhanced understanding will help them reduce waste and rework to create a leaner overall lab experience.
Decemebr 9, 2015 - Ontario Power Generation has set an example for the global energy market.
November 17, 2015 - Canadian Biomass and Canadian Forest Industries’ recent dust mitigation webinar series is now available for viewing for a limited time!
October 26, 2015 - Want to learn more about the conditions necessary for a successful forest-based biorefinery?Join FPInnovations biorefinery and bioenergy research manager Tom Browne for his presentation, “Technical and economic conditions for success of the forest-based biorefinery,” on December 16 at 2:00 p.m. EST.Presentation description:The petroleum refinery converts a raw material, usually oil or gas, into a wide range of products: fuels, materials and chemicals. The biorefinery aims to do the same, but with a bio-based raw material such as agricultural crops or residues, wood chips or forestry residues, etc. The economics of the biorefinery depend on the price of oil and the biomass, and on the availability of solid transformation pathways.This webinar will provide a technical and economic overview of the conditions for successful implementation of a biorefinery in the NAFTA context, using the wood-based biorefinery as a model.And all of this for only $25!Click here to registerDate: December 16, 2015Time: 2:00 p.m. EST
September 17, 2015 - An intensive short course on “Designing the Forest Biorefinery” is offered by TAPPI, PAPTAC and EnVertis following the International Bioenergy and Bioproducts Conference in Atlanta.
September 8, 2015 – The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) officially announced that the 2016 World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology will be held from April 17 to 20, 2016 in San Diego, Calif. at the San Diego Convention Center.

Feb. 3, 2015 - To use of waste for energy is a possibility in all countries. This is truly a low-hanging fruit. Instead of taking waste to landfill, it must be recycled and used for energy, to produce heat, electricity, or transport fuels. Modern combustion and cleaning methods guarantee that this can be done without negative effects on the environment.
