Dec. 2, 2016 - An event taking place on Dec. 7 in Drayton Valley, Alta., will explore new rural economic development opportunities in bioindustrials with industry and government leaders, and how small communities can benefit from the growth of the bioeconomy.
The Canadian Wood Waste Recycling, Business Group, in partnership with BioAlberta and the CETC, are hosting panel discussions and a workshop that will explore both the market opportunities for rural communities in bioindustrials and investment challenges that are limiting the growth of the Alberta bioeconomy, wood recycling industry.
The panel discussions and workshop will allow participants to connect and network with government, industry, community leaders, and academics to discover solutions to create jobs and economic growth by developing robust biomass, wood supply chains.
Another aim is for participants to help create a positive policy environment by working together to convey industry and community needs to government, addressing and removing obstacles to bioindustrial success.
The event will consist of two panels: Taking advantage of biomass, wood waste and bioindustrial market opportunities, and overcoming investment challenges to achieve bioindustrial success.
