Biochemical Opportunities for Canada

  • 2017 Conference Program
  • September 28, 2017
  • 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

There are new and developing opportunities in bio-chemistry and bio hybrid technologies in Canada. Sarnia’s refining and petrochemical complex also serves as an ideal platform for new biohybrid chemistry manufacturing, such as BioAmber, which is locating a bio succinic acid plant in the bio-industrial park Sarnia. This dynamic session will focus on new development, research and investment in Canada and work being done by the Western University Research Park, Saskatchewan Research Council and Bioindustrial Innovation Canada.

This research creates an opportunity for producers and service sectors to collaborate on new solutions to help boost Canada’s economy. This session will aim to answer these questions:

  • What opportunities are available in bio-chemistry and hybrid clusters?
  • Who is taking advantage of these opportunities?
  • How can we apply these technologies to other regions?
