The bioeconomy holds significant economic potential for Alberta, a province with abundant biomass, advanced infrastructure and highly qualified personnel. The Alberta Bio Future (ABF) program is our flagship program to advance bioindustrial innovation and the bioeconomy.
The bioindustrial sector is also at the leading edge of clean technology. As such, ABF is focused on increasing sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint by promoting use of Alberta’s renewable resources.
We primarily focus on projects that add value to biomass in agriculture and forestry, and create new and improved bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies. Food, feed and pharma products are not included in this program.
