By Alberta Wood Waste Recycling Association

Nov. 3, 2016 - The Alberta Wood Waste Recycling Association, in partnership with BioAlberta and the CETC, is hosting panel discussions and a workshop that will explore both the market opportunities for rural communities in bioindustrials and investment challenges that are limiting the growth of the Alberta Bioeconomy, wood recycling industry.

The event will take place on Dec. 7 at the Clean Energy Technology Centre (CETC) in Drayton Valley, Alta. Participants will explore new rural economic development opportunities in bioindustrials with industry and government leaders, and learn about how small communities can benefit from the growth of the bioeconomy

The workshop will allow participants to connect and network with government, industry, community leaders, and academics to discover solutions to create jobs and economic growth by developing robust biomass, wood supply chains

The goal is to create a positive policy environment by working together to convey industry and community needs to government, addressing and removing obstacles to bioindustrial success
