Sept. 7, 2018 - Get a seat at the table to discuss how to grow Canada’s pellet market at this year’s Wood Pellet Association of Canada AGM and Conference taking place in Vancouver Sept. 19–20.

This year’s WPAC conference will feature speakers and sessions focused on global and Asian markets, sustainable fibre sourcing, the wood pellet supply chain, world class research and development, and more!

Speakers will include Fink Machine’s David Dubois, who will discuss growing the biomass boiler market in Canada.

Another speaker, Maine Energy Systems’ Dr. Harry “Dutch” Dresser, will discuss tackling the challenge of bringing European biomass boiler technology to Canada, and whether there is a path for Canadian adoption of EN 303-5.

BONUS: WPAC is offering post-conference site tours in northern British Columbia to visit Pacific Bioenergy’s Prince George pellet plant, Nechako Lumber and Premium Pellet in Vanderhoof, and Pinnacle Pellet’s Burns Lake pellet plant.


This year’s conference also includes a three-hour boat cruise aboard the Magic Spirit through Indian Arm — a steep-sided glacial fjord formed during the last ice age!
