BioFuelNet Canada mobilizes the Canadian biofuels research, industrial, governmental and investment communities to quickly address the challenges impeding the growth of an advanced biofuels industry, while focusing on non-food biomass as biofuel feedstock. We believe that a network approach is most effective to advance Canada’s bioeconomy.

We are offering an online certificate course on advanced biofuels, to be taken at your convenience. This course is a basic overview of what is biofuel, the advantages of biofuels, biofuels feedstocks, biofuel energy conversion technologies, biofuel pros and cons, combustion/emissions, as well as sustainability and aspects of commercialization and policy.
