Program 2024-25 120th Call for projects

Call for Projects on the Procurement & Conditioning of Forest Biomass for Bioenergy Production

WEBINAR REGISTRATION Forest biomass, which refers to residues from the forestry industry such as chips, sawdust, bark and branches, wood with no takers having no commercial use or no commercial user, as well as trees degraded as a result of natural disturbances, is emerging as a key resource for the energy transition and a sustainable circular economy. Not only does it maximize the use of forest resources and reduce waste, it also contributes to the diversification of energy sources, reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

With 3.5+ million anhydrous metric tons (amt) of forest harvest residues available each year, and a production of 7.7 million amt of joint sawmill products, Quebec is very well positioned to become a regional and global leader in the production of renewable energy and other value-added products made from forest biomass.

To this end, the Quebec's Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MRNF) has mandated the CRIBIQ to launch the Call for Projects on the Procurement & Conditioning of Forest Biomass for Bioenergy Production, aimed at supporting the realization of innovative industrial projects related to the production of bioenergy from local forest biomass.
