Bioeconomy- Industrial Uses Research Theme

The Bioeconomy-Industrial theme centres on the use of agriculturally-derived biomass to produce bioproducts. The bioproducts may be one of three types: biomass, biochemicals and bioenergy.

Research priorities within the Bioeconomy theme cover four areas of inquiry related to the production of bioproducts:

  • Feedstock-related research
  • Processing technologies research
  • Bioproduct development research
  • Policy research
