May 30, 2018 - If there's an easier, more efficient method, science will find a way. That's certainly the case in producing cellulosic biofuels, which, at least for now, requires a two-step process to free the sugars trapped in plant matter and convert them into something else. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) think that's one step too many.
May 10, 2018 - Canada’s heavy industries are notorious for being the biggest emitters of carbon in Canada. With a price of carbon being tagged onto emissions, these heavy industries are finding ways to reduce emissions. Despite the government narrative about fossil fuel use reduction, there is no perfect substitute to fossil fuel for heavy industries like steel, cement, mining and insulation manufacturing.

Feb. 12, 2018 - Canada has always been an agricultural powerhouse, but these days it’s not just about selling prairie wheat, P.E.I. potatoes and maple syrup to the world. Now we’re also building bio-cars from ag-based fibres, composites and foams. We’re creating naturally derived pharmaceuticals and functional foods that help fight disease. We’re cutting carbon emissions by finding valuable uses for agricultural wastes, and we’re boosting agricultural productivity in all kinds of ways.
Feb. 7, 2018 - FPInnovations has released a special guidebook outlining best management practices for integrated harvest operations in British Columbia.
Jan. 25, 2018 - Enviva, the world’s largest producer of industrial wood pellets, today released its latest Track & Trace sourcing data, marking one year of public reporting and two years of tracking the company’s sustainable sourcing practices.
