It will help “build the first national bioeconomy strategy”
The federal government is investing up to $200,000 in Bioindustrial Innovation Canada.
Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau said the money comes from the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program and will help “to build the first national bioeconomy strategy to help meet the goal of reducing CO2 emissions, reduce greenhouse gases and attract additional markets in the biomass and bioproduct sector.”
She said farmers will gain opportunities “to diversify their commodities into new markets and develop new uses for crops.
“This new strategy will also provide a great opportunity to work with other sectors, including forestry, to help meet Canada’s agriculture growth plans for a greener economy.”
