    Dear members, friends and supporters of OBPC,

    The Canadian Outdoor Farm Show is just around the corner and all kinds of preparations are in full gear.
    Ontario Biomass Producers Co-op will be an exhibitor again, but this time with a slightly different twist.
    This year we will have a direct presence near the switchgrass and miscanthus plots on the South West Demo Field.
    OSCIA have given us an opportunity to be where the real biomass action is and provided us with the needed space under their "roof".
    The solid partnership with OSCIA has been a major contributing factor in our efforts to open new biomass market opportunities.

    We will make a major effort to have biomass experts on site during the entire show, which will give you an opportunity to ask questions and discuss possible future biomass projects. With a little bit of luck you might also meet at our location key decision makers of the biomass industry.
    We expect a lot more action this year at the COFS biomass location (COFS Map-to-Site). Vermeer will be conducting biomass harvesting demos twice a day during the entire show.
    And last but not least, the switchgrass and miscanthus fields (2 varieties of each type) look really great this year.

    I truly hope that you will manage to take some time-out for the Farm Show and stop at our location.

    Our Farm Show team is looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

    The presentations of the 3 guest speakers, Dr. Williams, Dr. Kircher and Dr. Fireovid, are now online on the BDDC website

    Following the 3 presentations Professor Amar Mohanty moderated a panel discussion, which gave the audience a great opportunity to interact with the 3 presenters and engage in some lively bi-directional information flow.

    For everyone who did not manage to attend the seminar (or any of the past ones), the BDDC website offers a solid opportunity to keep up with many burning bio economy topics.

    Congratulations to the BDDC team are in order for staging this very successful event, which enjoyed a great turn-out.
