Alberta Bio Future, Equipment Utilization

Alberta Bio Future (ABF) and its sub-programs focus primarily on projects that add value to biomass in agriculture and forestry, and create new and improved bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies.

The ABF Equipment Utilization sub-program has been open to applications from companies and sole proprietors based in Alberta. Its focus is on the scale-up and pilot development of bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies.

About the program

The Alberta Bio Future, Equipment Utilization sub-program was launched March 12, 2015.

Companies with eligible projects are supported in their use of publicly owned equipment for the mechanical conversion of biomass. This equipment is available on a fee-for-service basis:

Eligible projects include some or all of the following activities:

  • Scale-up, pilot, pre-commercial and commercial processing activities, biomass conversion and characterization.
  • Biomass characterization with direct application to the bioindustrial sector.

Information on biomass characterization developed in the projects will be made publicly available to advance the bioindustrial sector.
