June 20, 2013, Guelph, Ont. - Canada's agricultural biomass industry will further establish itself in Canada when players from across the country meet in Ottawa to discuss how to move this new energy sector forward.

The 2013 Ag Biomass Canada
Conference – "Connecting the Agricultural Biomass Industry Across Canada" –
poses an opportunity for Canada to discuss this important topic at a key
information and networking event.

"Developing a biomass
aggregation chain in Canada is the first step to establishing a purpose-grown
crops industry," says Nick Betts, conference co-ordinator and applied research
co-ordinator with the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association. "This
conference will bring together representatives from every aspect of the
agricultural biomass industry – from growers to transportation, and financing
to energy generation."

Agricultural biomass is a
renewable energy industry that will soon be a part of Canadian agriculture,
utilizing purpose-grown biomass crops for heat and power generation.

The first of a planned
annual event, the 2013 Ag Biomass Canada Conference is on August 22 to23, 2013
at the Minto Suites in Ottawa, Ont. The conference will feature facilitated
panel discussions with industry representatives. Each panel will cover an
aspect of the agricultural biomass industry including developing the supply
chain, combustion, getting product to market, bio-products and domestic and
European markets.


The conference will conclude
with a "Where do we go from here?" discussion to ensure the momentum continues
long after the event.
