Bio-based resources are manufacturing materials that contain organic carbon that is derived from living plants, animals, algae, microorganisms or organic waste streams. In the industrial circular economy, we refer to bio-based resources as biomass or biomaterials. The use of bio-based resources ensures that the carbon used in the manufacturing process is derived from a renewable, biological process.
This exceptional panel discussion features leading practitioners based in the West Kootenays, the hub of Canada’s world-class industrial circular economy. They will explore how bio-based resources can be used to reduce the environmental impact of heavy industry and discuss the latest developments in the field of bio-based resources and technology. They’ll also provide examples of how bio-based resources are a growing part of the renewable energy sector, construction, and industrial processing.
