Norda Stelo has joined the BDO Zone Strategic Alliance as a partner in the Project Group. BDO Zone Strategic Alliance Partners include some of the leading companies in the bioenergy industry that help de-risk biobased project development in BDO Zones.

“Through becoming a partner of the BDO Zone initiative and using our strategic, collaborative, and technical abilities we can help to identify, develop and deploy projects that help our clients and the communities in which they operate decarbonize more quickly. As the first major engineering firm in Canada to become B-Corp certified who is also committed to achieving net zero, we are thrilled to be a part of the BDO Zone initiative to drive and de-risk investment in sustainable energy alternatives that will bring tremendous local economic local benefits while driving down greenhouse gas emissions,” said Alex Brisson, CEO of Norda Stelo.

“The BDO Zone Initiative welcomes Norda Stelo as the newest addition to the growing Strategic Alliance,” states Jordan Solomon, president of Ecostrat. “Norda Stelo’s expertise in delivering integrated projects that utilize Brownfield Engineering will help de-risk and accelerate the production of bio-based plants in BDO Zones across North America.”

American biomass provides an economic development engine with the potential to create 160,000 jobs and nearly $15 billion of economic benefit. In Canada, the national economic impact potential is estimated at 16,060 direct, indirect, and induced jobs and over $1.48 billion annually of economic benefit. The BDO Zone Initiative can help North America realize this potential by supporting new market development for bioenergy, advanced biofuels, biobased heat and power, bio-materials, and clean hydrogen.
