Upcoming bio-energy conferences

April 19, 2012  By Treena Hein

Two bio-energy conferences this week are examining all facets of using bio-materials to produce energy and more.
From April 24-26th, CanBio holds ‘Advancing the Bio-economy: Biomass in a Canadian Energy Strategy’ in Edmonton, Alberta. From April 23-25, The North American Waste-to-Energy Conference is running in Portland, Maine.

There is still space available at both conferences.

CanBio’s ‘Advancing the Bio-economy: Biomass in a Canadian Energy Strategy’ will explore options to develop the bio-economy, as well as the options available to the oil & gas industry, the forest and agriculture industries, the bioenergy industry and utilities to form partnerships in its development. It is part of CanBio’s plans to develop a ‘Canadian Bioenergy Strategy’ by the end of this year. CanBio says the government of Canada is currently contemplating the development of a Canadian Energy Strategy. Visit here for more.


The North American Waste-to-Energy Conference (NAWTEC) is widely recognized as the leading industry technical conference and trade show focusing on municipal waste-to-energy operational issues and policy, technology and research initiatives. It is sponsored by the Energy Recovery Council (ERC), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), in partnership with the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council (WTERT) at Columbia University.
