BioFuelNet Canada is a network that brings together the Canadian biofuels research community to aggressively address the challenges impeding the growth of an advanced biofuels industry, while focusing on non-food biomass as biofuel feedstocks. BioFuelNet includes renowned, multi-disciplinary experts from academia, government, industry and investment working together in a concerted and synergistic way. This group is working to develop and apply novel and innovative science, engineering and socio-economic strategies that will enhance environmental sustainability for future generations.
BioFuelNet is focused on unlocking the tremendous potential of lignocellulosic feedstocks and other advanced biofuel feedstocks in the production of advanced biofuels. With lignocellulosics making up over 90% of available biomass in Canada, the challenge of effectively converting this biomass into fuels is central to the growth of the Canadian biofuels industry.biofuelnet.ca
