Ontario funds biomass research efforts

By Staff
The Ontario Trillium Foundation has awarded a $565,000 grant to the Biomass Network Group at Nipissing University's Biomass Innovation Centre to help establish biomass as one of the new clean technologies in the province, and to support economic growth of northern Ontario through curriculum development and training in a range of related jobs and professions.

The Biomass Innovation Centre was formed in the spring of 2009, and focuses on realizing the positive environmental and financial impacts of using the province's existing wood supply for renewable heat and energy.
