TRANSFORMATION ENGINEERING
The TRANSFORMATION ENGINEERING segment will focus on the new transformation engineering programs and actual discoveries. Speakers will describe the possibilities for biorefinery start-ups within the context of creating economic growth in Canada’s forest communities and elsewhere in the world. Biomaterials will be part of this area and will cover steps to use existing pulp mills as a launchpad for bioeconomy development for the forest sector. Successful stories will demonstrate pathways from the traditional process to a new vibrant future full off possibilities.
