The next GreenTech Exchange Forum will be held on Wednesday, June 26th in Vancouver and the topic is “Harmonizing Energy and Food”.

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.


  • Bob Paul, Bioeconomy Analyst
  • Chris Bush, Catalyst Agri-Innovation Society
