September 30, 2013, Sydney, N.S. – A bioenergy research
project investigating biomass opportunities for local hardwood feedstocks will
move forward thanks to the awarding of a research grant.

The research will look at the potential of three locally
produced hardwood feedstocks capability to become activated carbon, and their
ability to absorb pollutants under water. Stephanie McQuarrie, an assistant
professor of organic chemistry at Cape Breton University, is conducting the
research in conjunction with BW Bioenergy Inc. CEO Barrie Folek.

The project received a $45,000 grant from Mitacs, a Canadian
not-for-profit organization that provides grants for internships and
fellowships at Canadian universities that are given to international students.
Along with a matching $45,000 grant from BW Bioenergy Inc., the funding will allow
post-doc student Khaled Omari to work on the project.
