While we all experience the metabolism of energy from food, the use of biomass to convert energy in the agriculture system is growing. The useful applications of bioenergy truly enable basic elements to come full circle. British Columbia has a diverse suite of biotechnology initiatives that is fostering innovative pathways for a Bioeconomy. Demonstration projects such as anaerobic digesters reduce greenhouse gas emissions, generate effective fertilizers and lower food waste in landfills. Biomass and chemical R&D is leading to novel biorefining processes and enhanced wastewater treatment. In the June 2013 GreenTech Exchange (GTEx) Forum, a panel of bioenergy experts will discuss agriculture in a whole new light and share insights on drivers and barriers with technology adoption, selective showcase of key projects in BC and opportunities in the short and long term. With the increasing demand to produce sustainable products, the Bioeconomy will be the catalyst that transitions society to produce from more regenerating biomass sources and integrating energy systems.
